Trace Adkins is opening a new chapter in his career with the Aug. 17 release of his first album for Show Dog-Universal. Cowboy’s Back In Town is being described as vintage Adkins, running the gamut from love songs like “Still Love You,” to the rowdy side of country life in the hilarious “Hold My Beer.”
He also has a deluxe version coming out the same day, offering fans four bonus tracks, including “Hillbilly Bone” his hit with Blake Shelton.
Adkins showcases his writing chops on the outing—he penned the title track with friends Jeff Bates and Kenny Beard, who also co-produced with Jason Aldean hitmaker Michael Knox. Other highlights include a guest spot from labelmate Trailer Choir. The project’s first single is “This Ain’t No Love Song.”
In addition to headlining his own dates, Adkins is on the road with Toby Keith‘s American Ride Tour through September. The pair toured together previously, which led to Adkins’ eventual signing with Keith’s label.
Adkins has sold more than 10 million records and earned four Grammy nominations with hits such as “You’re Gonna Miss This,” “This Ain’t No Thinkin’ Thing,” “Honky-Tonk Badonkadonk” and “Ladies Love Country Boys.”
