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 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 am at the top of my game right now,” Adkins said. “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’s illustrious career includes 14 singles that have earned their place on the shelves of the Billboard’s Top 10. With two billion streams to his name, it’s no wonder his “fiery live performances” have garnered millions of fans over the course of his 25-year career.
In fact, Adkins’ latest album contains 25 brand new tracks that pay homage to the 25th anniversary of his “Dreamin’ Out Loud” debut. The newest album is also steeped in the culture and history of the musician’s Louisiana upbringing.
According to those at RPC, “The Way I Wanna Go finds him leaning into a lone-wolf spirit, and continuing down the road which made him a shapeshifting member of the Grand Ole Opry.”
This album features some amazing collaborations between Adkins and a number of high-profile artists, including Luke Bryan, Melissa Etheridge, Snoop Dog, Pitbull, Blake Shelton, and Stevie Wonder on the harmonica. I mean, does it really get better than that?
