Trace Adkins has been keeping busy, promoting his new CD, “Cowboy’s Back In Town.” Yesterday, he visited Fox & Friends in New York City, where he not only performed “This Ain’t No Love Song,” he also Had a few words to say about the on-going controversy regarding the proposed building of a Mosque near Ground Zero.
I have always liked Trace’s music. I enjoyed him on The Apprentice. Always like him on talk shows. And I definitely enjoy seeing him in concert, I’ve been to at least 1/2 a dozen of his shows. I’ve met him on several occasions – and while there may be a lot of things people could say about Trace, I think the one thing that stands out is that he is really a smart guy. And he’s definitely someone who will speak what he believes, whenever he is asked.
During his interview with Fox hosts Steve Doocy, Brian Kilmeade and Alisyn Camerota, Alisyn asked Trace what he thought about the mosque that a religious group wants to build just a few blocks from where the World Trade Center towers fell under terrorist attack.
Here’s what Trace had to say: "Look, they’ve already won because this is a no-win position that we’ve been put in," said Trace. "I don’t know who their PR person is, but they’re better than ours because it doesn’t matter how we react now, we already lose. If they get to build the mosque, they can run around the rest of the Islamic world and proclaim victory that they tore down an iconic structure and rebuilt a mosque in its place. And if we don’t let them do it, then they’ll go preach to the Islamic world that we’re intolerant. So it’s a no-win for us."
Here’s the video of Trace’s performance on Fox & Friends on Friday.
Don’t forget that Trace’s album, “Cowboy’s Back In Town,” was released on Aug. 17. If you don’t have a copy yet, you might want to run out and buy one. It’s a great CD, and will definitely be a great addition to your CD collection.
I’ll talk to you in a little bit. Sorry about getting this up late – but I actually slept in this morning, and then I went out for breakfast. That was a very nice change from getting up and rushing to the office.
Talk to you all soon! Enjoy your Saturday!
