Country music legend Trace Adkins will bring his timeless hits and trademark baritone vocals to The Orleans Showroom July 30 and 31.
Adkins rose to fame in the mid-‘90s at a time when country music was blending its classic honky-tonk sound with components of gospel, blues and rock ‘n’ roll. Born in the small Louisiana town of Sarepta, Adkins learned to play guitar at an early age and eventually went on to study music at Louisiana Tech.
Adkins moved to Nashville in the early 90’s and was quickly signed to Capitol Records. He released his debut album in 1996 called “Dreamin’ Out Loud.” The album is known for the chart-topping hits “Every Light in the House,” “I Left Something Turned on at Home” and “(This Ain’t) No Thinkin’ Thing.” That same year, Adkins was awarded Top New Male Vocalist by the Academy of Country Music.
In 2005, Adkins released the song “Honky Tonk Badonkadonk” which peaked at #2 on the U.S. Hot Country Songs chart and reached Top 40 on both the U.S. Billboard Hot 100 and Pop 100 charts. Most recently in 2016, Adkins released “Jesus and Jones,” his first single with BBR Music Group’s Wheelhouse Records. His career spans more than two decades during which Adkins has sold more than 10 million albums.
In addition to his success in the world of country music, Adkins raised more than $1.5 million for the American Red Cross as the winner of NBC’s “All-Star Celebrity Apprentice” in 2013. He is also a spokesperson for United Service Organizations (USO) and has performed on 10 tours with the organization.
