Top 3 Things to Do in Owensboro This Weekend: April 29-May 1

Trace Adkins 

If you’re looking for some high-quality country music to get your spring and summer started, there’s no better place to find it than at the upcoming Trace Adkins concert in Owensboro. Adkins will perform live at the RiverPark Center on April 28 at 7 p.m. With 11 million albums sold across the world since his debut in 1996, it’s fair to say Adkins has a huge following already, but his most recent album, “The Way I Wanna Go,” showcases the multi-Platinum country star’s newfound freedom in the country music business. “I’m better at this than I’ve ever been in my life, and I like the way my voice sounds better than 25 years ago…I’ve got to the point where it’s all up to me now. I can do whatever I want. And that’s a beautiful place to be,” Adkins said. Tickets for the show are $53 apiece.
