Adkins drops "Still a Soldier" video

Thursday, December 7, 2017 – Trace Adkins dropped a video for his single "Still A Soldier" today.

Director Mike Stryker and producer Shanah helped Adkins create a tribute to veterans and their loved ones for the music video. The powerful video features the life of Army Specialist Bryan Gerwitz.,

"We recorded this song well over a year ago, and my intent was always to release it as a tip of my hat to those who have served," Adkins said. "For those who have crawled off the battlefield but still stand for the anthem, this is for you."

Written by Phil O'Donnell and Wade Kirby, "Still a Soldier" is the current single off Adkins' March release on BBR Music Group/Wheelhouse Records, "Something's Going On."

Adkins has been involved in efforts for soldiers through his work as spokesperson for the Wounded Warrior Project and 12 overseas USO trips.

CD reviews for Trace Adkins

Something's Going On CD review - Something's Going On
Trace Adkins' wonderful low singing voice can be a little deceptive because he could easily sing utter crap and still somehow sound great. It's why the critical ear must pay close attention to specifically what he's saying in his songs whenever evaluating his work. Adkins doesn't write his own songs, so he's entirely dependent upon stellar writers. Thankfully, "Something's Going On" is a better than average collection of songs, especially good for Adkins, as »»»
Live Country DVD CD review - Live Country DVD
"Live Country" is a concert film featuring Trace Adkins performing his biggest hits at The Paramount in Huntington, N.Y. Anticipation was high for this one because Adkins, along with Josh Turner, is one of our very best low-voiced singers. Perhaps poor audio quality is to blame, but Adkins' singing isn't nearly as powerful in this live setting as it is on CD. From the cheesy stage props to the casually dressed backing singers (one even has a headband that leaves her looking »»»
The King's Gift CD review - The King's Gift
Trace Adkins, with that wonderfully deep voice of his, is always a pleasure. He's like an actor (well he has acted actually) that never gives a bad performance, even in a poor movie. When it comes to evaluating Adkins' albums, it's all about the music he surrounds himself with and the songs he's given to sing. And with "The King's Gift," Adkins is placed in a nearly can't miss situation; he's singing mostly familiar Christmas carols, with a mainly »»»
Editorial: Walking the talk – When names like Hank Williams, Johnny Cash, Waylon and the Hag are invoked, you're talking hard core country. These are the touchstones of country , the guys who made country music what it was and still is (or maybe can be). When these folks would sing about being down-and-out and the rough-and-tumble, they knew of what they were singing about. Fast forward a few years to the country singers of today. »»»
Concert Review: Turnpike Troubadours are winners – The Turnpike Troubadours had a lot of competition when playing Beantown - the Red Sox playoff game first and foremost. No matter though because the country band put on their own winning show. That was no surprise given the individual abilities of the band, not to mention a plethora of worthy songs to choose from. It all starts with lead singer Evan Felker.... »»»
Concert Review: The Killer lives on with Low Cut Connie – Jerry Lee Lewis isn't exactly out and about hitting the clubs these days. But if he was searching for someone who was carrying on his torch, he would do well to check out Adam Weiner, the force behind Low Cut Connie. The Philly band was highly entertaining with Weiner a true force of nature. Think Lewis merged with Springsteen (although The Boss is The Boss).... »»»
