Trace Adkins to Perform in Macy’s Thanksgiving Day Parade


It’s almost that time of year! Trace Adkins will be one of many performers appearing in this year’s Macy’s Thanksgiving Day Parade. The 86th annual Parade will kick-off the holiday season on November 22nd at 9AM throughout the streets of Manhattan.

Trace will be joined by other performers from music, film, sports, theatre and television, including: Flo Rida, Carly Rae Jepsen, Cody Simpson, The Wanted and more. The country superstar is expected to perform his hit “Just Fishin’.”

Stirrin’ Up Sweet Sensations, the new Domino Sugar float, features a magical take on holiday baking. The centerpiece of this 26-foot tall float is the giant cookie dough bowl and cookie press that dishes out confections.  Three stories above the ground a giant spoon stirs the cookie dough in an equally colossal bowl. As it travels into the cookie press, the dough drops onto the turntable and finally into the oven. The treats will be shot down a ramp to the awaiting cars of the Cookie Express train which will deliver the cookies to the children in the streets. Trace is set to add his down home flavor to the mix.

The Parade will air nationwide on NBC from 9AM-noon.

Trace Adkins’ Tough People Do Rushed to Digital Retailers

Trace Adkins‘ latest anthem “Tough People Do” has been rushed out to all digital retailers over the holiday weekend after his performance of the single at a charity concert in Tampa, Florida. He introduced the song as one “for all of us” and is his latest American anthemic tune to hit airwaves – on talk radio! The single has drummed up debate on if it was an American anthem or a political one.

Trace explained what the song meant to him in an interview with ABC radio:

“I’m just really proud of the song, and to me, the song just says — sometimes we need to be reminded of who we are, where we come from and what our history is. We’ve made it through tougher times than this.”


The song was a co-write by Chris DuBois, Jason Matthews and Joel Shewmake and will appear on Trace’s upcoming album. There’s no title or release date yet for his new album which will once again be on Show Dog-Universal Records.

“My grandma was the toughest old woman I ever saw in my life,” Trace told Mansfield. “She’d still work in the garden with an old push-plow until her late 70s. Just the toughest old woman I ever knew and, at the same time, the godliest creature that I ever knew. That’s the point of this song. That’s what we have in our DNA. That’s what we come from.”
