Trace Adkins Set To Release New Album “Proud To Be Here” August 2
This is great news because that is the Tuesday following the Trace Adkins show at Bayfront Festival Park in Duluth. That means we will probably get to hear some highly anticipated new music 'live, in addition to his catalog of nearly 30 hits! It sounds like this next album a perfect next step for Trace.
Trace Adkins has confirmed that PROUD TO BE HERE isn't just a humble motto of gratitude, it is the title of his forthcoming album, which will be released August 2, 2011 by Show Dog - Universal Music. The announcement was made in front of thousands of fans on Saturday night during Adkins' 13th consecutive CMA Music Festival performance at LP Field in Nashville, TN. The album Deluxe Edition will be available for presale on iTunes on July 12, 2011. Fans can participate in pre-sale orders and exclusive offers now via www.TraceAdkins.com.
"Proud To Be Here was chosen as the album title some weeks ago because it's how I've felt ever since my first album release and during every milestone since. The title song could have been based on my life and it's about narrow escapes and the grace that guides you through. Obviously, now after the fire, Proud To Be Here takes on an even greater significance. Once again, I've been blessed and everyone is safe. I don't even want to think what could've been had it started at 3am instead of 3pm..." said Trace.
Recorded in the Spring of 2011 and dubbed PROUD TO BE HERE last May, the album was produced by Kenny Beard and Mark Wright. The album contains 10 tracks with an additional 4 tracks appearing on the Deluxe Edition. The Deluxe Edition includes Trace and Blake Shelton (courtesy of Warner Bros. Records) on a hilarious response song called "If I Was a Woman," co-written by Trace Adkins, Sherrie Austin, Jeff Bates and Kenny Beard.
Trace's own co-writing is more prominent on PROUD TO BE HERE than on previous releases - a fact he attributes to the creative environment he has established on his farm outside of Nashville. The farm didn't only inspire new songs, it also recently served as the location for the "Just Fishin'" music video, starring youngest daughter, Trinity Adkins.
