I asked you all to tell me which Trace song is your favorite, and why. Some people e-mailed t heir entries, as I asked; others put them on the site as comments, which was fine, too. I did get mailing addresses for each entrant, and here are the three that have been selected the winners!
Luke C., McVeytown, PA: My favorite Trace Adkins song is Swing because it gets me into the baseball so much I could hear that song everyday of my life.
Shirlene D., Limestone, TN: My favorite Trace song is Arlington. Even though I love the rough and rowdy country boy in Rough and Ready and Ladies Love Country Boys as well as the sensitive side of Trace in Every Light In the House is On, I am a total sucker for the honest to goodness patriot that comes out in Arlington. I know it comes from the heart, since he has gone to the Middle East to show his support for the troops. I too am unbelievably grateful to the men and women that not only lay their lives down for us, but also put their family’s wholeness at risk. Knowing that many little boys and girls have to be separated from their parent, maybe even permanently, breaks my heart and causes me to pray for the safety of our troops. This prevalent support for our troops is one of the main reason I LOVE country music. God bless our troops and artists like Trace for honoring them!!
Scott B., Kenosha, WI: My favorite Trace song is You’re Gonna Miss This because I was around 14 when the song came out. It really taught me to cherish every moment and take everything I can in!
We’ll be having another contest very soon, so keep reading, and keep entering!
