With Trace Adkins’ March 31 release of Something’s Going On (his first for BBR Music Group/Wheelhouse Records), the 3x GRAMMY-nominated 6’6” vocalist finds himself debuting Top 3 on the Nielsen Soundscan Current Country Albums Chart. With his current single “Watered Down,” which showcases Adkins’ more “enlightened” side, Rolling Stone goes on to note he’s “going for longevity” with this release. Fans can view the official music video HERE, featuring Adkins enjoying a simpler life and slower pace on a Nashville farm, where he does much of the heavy lifting himself, skills he showcases tonight when he stops by Adam Carolla and Friends Build Stuff Live. Fans can catch the country music icon and the acclaimed comedian building an outdoor patio, competing for tool knowledge and answering fan questions via social media on Monday, April 10 on Spike at 11p.m. ET / 10 p.m. CT.
Adkins premiered “Watered Down,” the lead single from Something’s Going On, on NBC’s Today on March 31. In the slow-burning rumination on achieving insight with age, Adkins is fully aware of the adjustments and boundaries, but still maintains his edge, grit and power as an artist. It is the cut Adkins points to as the truest reflection of his career and life to date.
The chart-topping star will give fans another chance to catch a live look at “Watered Down” when he stops by “The Talk” on Tuesday, April 18.

Adkins’ trademark baritone has powered countless hits to the top of the charts. The three-time GRAMMY-nominated member of the Grand Ole Opry is a TV personality, actor, author, and spokesman for the Wounded Warrior Project and the American Red Cross, for whom he raised more than $1.5 million dollars as winner of NBC’s All-Star Celebrity Apprentice.
In recent years, Adkins has performed for our service men and women across 11 USO Tours, with his 12th scheduled for spring 2017. In his 2007 autobiography, A Personal Stand: Observations and Opinions from a Freethinking Roughneck, he recounted his rise to fame, brushes with death and battles with personal demons. Adkins has played a tough-as-nails biker in The Lincoln Lawyer (starring Matthew McConaughey), a desperate father in Deepwater Horizon (starring Mark Wahlberg) and a wise oracle of a tattoo artist in the family-friendly film Moms’ Night Out (starring Patricia Heaton, Sean Astin, Sarah Drew).
