iTunes Review

This Louisiana singer has one of the most commanding voices in all of modern country. He’s able to command authority and still express his vulnerable side. The title track is the actual tale of his Tennessee home burning down. He was on tour; his wife and kids escaped without harm. Such a reminder of mortality chokes up this man’s man, who elsewhere shows further love for family and tradition with “Just Fishin’” and an empathy for the many people who have made him a star. “Days Like This” proves everyone has days that test one’s patience. “That’s What You Get” throws a muscular rock groove and a swirling organ into Adkins’ pure country. “Love Buzz” adds a slinky harmonica blues to the mix. “It’s Who You Know” spotlights stellar harmonies and a sad human truth. The Deluxe Edition features several essential highlights. “Semper Fi” tributes the men and women of the U.S. military and their bravery, while his playful duet with Blake Shelton on “If I Was a Woman” is a fantastic, spirited honky-tonk number that concludes, “I’d love a man like me.” A video for “Just Fishin’” featuring his daughter is also included.

Semper Fi

More fabulous music from Trace Adkins! I pre-ordered this release, and have finally been able to bask in new TA tunes! My son, Sgt "Dan", is a three time combat veteran in both Iraq and Afghanistan. As a Marine mother, it brought tears to my eyes when I heard "Semper Fi". Thanks, Trace, for paying your respects, yet again, to our Marines, and all who have, and continue to serve this great nation.

Semper Fi

As a United States Marine, we often get over shadowed by the other branches of the service because of size alone. It is very common for a country musician to pay homage to the members past and present of our armed forces, and I am grateful for that. But, it's not very often someone singles out the Marines and puts together a masterpiece like this. Mr. Adkins - Thank you and Semper Fidelis!


Any song that is sung by Trace is a song worth buying.

Trace Adkins helped keep country's traditionalist flame burning during the crossover-happy late '90s, mixing classic honky tonk with elements of gospel, blues, and rock & roll. Adkins was born in the small Louisiana town of Sarepta in 1962 and took up the guitar at an early age; he went on to study music at Louisiana Tech, where he also played football and worked on an offshore oil rig after graduating. His finger was severed in an accident while on the job, and once several years had passed, he...
