Trace Adkins to Embark on "Songs & Stories" tour in March
Thu, 26 Jan 2012 11:56:10
Roughneck and thoroughly awesome country singer Trace Adkins has announced the Songs & Stories Tour, which will visit many of America's most beautiful theaters this Spring. These intimate evenings of powerful performances will incorporate stories, both humorous and meaningful, that pay homage to Adkins' working-man roots and rich musical heritage. Tickets for March dates go on sale to the public on Friday, Jan. 27. More dates are expected to be added. But for now, a bunch of tickets go on sale tomorrow.
Inspiration for the Songs & Stories Tour came as Trace released his 10th studio album, Proud to Be Here, last summer with a CMT Invitation Only special. The special featured new hits "Just Fishin'" and "Million Dollar View," a Q&A session and the most-loved songs from Adkins' 20 year career. The taping was so fun for Trace and his guests that he began laying plans for a tour.
"I've had many narrow escapes and blessings in my life. The right song at the right time has been my saving grace and that's something I have in common with the audience. Sharing meaningful songs, stories and some laughs 'around the campfire' is the Country music tradition and I'm looking forward to it," he said.
Fans can share their own stories, questions and the songs that have inspired or shaped their lives on the Songs & Stories page at www.traceadkins.com.
