Showdog-Universal’s Trace Adkins has been invited to headline the 2nd Annual NRA Country Jam on April 13th, 2012. The music festival, which is presented by Bushnell and Folds of Honor, will take place at the Ferrara Theater in St. Louis, just steps away from the exhibit hall in America’s Center during the annual NRA meetings.

The exhibit hall is expected to be packed with over 500 exhibitors displaying shooting and hunting products of every kind. Over 70,000 NRA members will be in St. Louis for a three-day event kicked off by Trace’s performance.

Trace is an avid supporter of the American military and will be donating a proceed of the portions of the event, along with sponsor Bushnell, to the Folds of Honor Foundation. The foundation was created by Iraq veteran Major Dan Rooney to help provide post-secondary educational scholarships to children and spouses of American military service members killed or injured in action. Since forming in 2007, Folds of Honor has generated over $8.9 million for scholarships.

“I can’t wait to take the stage at the NRA Country Jam 2. It’s going to be a great show,” says Trace. “Folds of Honor is an important cause and I’m happy to help give back to those who give so much for our freedom.”

Video Picks Of The Week: January 29, 2012

Hi friends…

It’s time for our “Video Picks of the Week!”

This week’s music video is Trace Adkins‘ hit, “Just Fishin’.” Sometimes you get a song and a video, and you just think to yourself… that could not have been done better. That is how I feel about “Just Fishin’.” It is one of my favorite country music videos of all-time.

The song served as Adkins’ lead single for his album, Proud To Be Here, and is nominated for “Best Country Song” at the upcoming Grammy Awards. The music video stars Adkins and his youngest daughter, and is a great representation for the very heartfelt and sweet song.

Trace Adkins On The State Of Country Music


As the calendar is about to turn on a phenomenal year for Country music, it’s time to sit back and reflect a bit.

Country’s influence and impact reached far and wide this past year.  Cross-over artists like Taylor Swift and Lady A brought their music to millions of fans, many of whom may have been getting their first taste of the genre.  Country artists finished first and second on the latest season of American idol with Scotty McCreery and Lauren Alaina.  Then there was Blake Shelton, who brought a funny, thoughtful and sometimes surprisingly compassionate face to Country through his work on NBC’s “The Voice”.
