GAC Trivia Time: Trace Adkins

Trace Adkins has never been afraid to try new things…in life or in music.

Trace Adkins Lobs a “Grenade”

Is “Brown Chicken Brown Cow” Trace Adkins’ next “Honky Tonk Badonkadonk”? It certainly has all the earmarks. When Trace put out “Badonkadonk” in 2005, he stirred up the audience. The song, which playfully addresses the visual pleasures of a woman’s backside, created a certain amount of controversy. It’s silly — just as it was intended — and there’s a large block of people who absolutely hate that song because of it. But it’s also immensely catchy, and it became one of the biggest hits of his career. It was so huge, in fact, that when Trace hosted the American Country Awards on Monday, producers used “Badonkadonk” in the opening minutes of the show, even though it’s five years old. Trace’s Toby Keith-owned label, Show Dog-Universal Records, released “Brown Chicken Brown Cow” to radio stations this week, and it has a good chance of going down the same path. It’s the lead track on the album Cowboy’s Back In Town, Trace’s first project for the label, and it’s at least as silly as “Badonkadonk.” Read More

Coming on the heels of “Do I,” Luke’s rollicking little party song has been part of a strong 2010, though its roots were planted years ago. Read More
