TRACE ADKINS ANNOUNCES
THE WAY I WANNA GO TOUR 2020
NASHVILLE, Tenn. – Country icon Trace Adkins has sold 11 million albums over the last two decades with hits like “You’re Gonna Miss This” and “Every Light In The House Is On” fueling his live shows. With a new album on the horizon, Adkins is taking the music to the people in 2020 on his new tour, The Way I Wanna Go Tour 2020. The 27-stop jaunt begins April 15 in Lancaster, Pennsylvania, with stops in Biloxi, Mississippi, French Lick, Indiana and Cheyenne, Wyoming along the way.
The 6’6”, deep-voiced Grand Ole Opry member, who has earned numerous GRAMMY nominations and taken home multiple CMT and ACM awards, has little left to prove but says he still craves the rush of recording albums and performing live for his die-hard fans, some of whom weren’t even born when he started touring.
“I’ll be on stage singing ‘Every Light in the House Is On,’ and I look down at the crowd and realize that person right there wasn’t even alive when I recorded that song,” Adkins says, laughing. “To watch their face go, Oh, that’s a cool hook, I like this… it’s like, ‘Well, these songs still resonate today and are tried-and-true hits.’ It’s pretty special.”

About Trace Adkins
Towering baritone Trace Adkins has sold more than 11 million albums and charted more than 20 singles in his 25 years in Nashville, a remarkable run for one of country music’s most easily identifiable stars. With over one billion spins on Pandora (10 million per month), one million followers on Spotify and nearly 200 million plays on YouTube, the Louisiana native is back in the studio after releasing his 12th studio album, Something’s Going On, in 2017. A three-time GRAMMY Award nominee, Adkins has won three Academy of Country Music Awards, including the 2009 Single of the Year Award for “You’re Gonna Miss This” and Vocal Event of the Year with Blake Shelton for “Hillbilly Bone” in 2010. The Grand Ole Opry member is also an 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 members across 12 USO Tours. In his 2007 autobiography, A Personal Stand: Observations and Opinions from a Freethinking Roughneck, Adkins recounted his rise to fame, brushes with death, and battles with personal demons. Adkins has also acted in multiple films and television shows, playing a tough-as-nails biker in “The Lincoln Lawyer” (starring Matthew McConaughey), a desperate father in “Deepwater Horizon” (starring Mark Wahlberg), a wise oracle of a tattoo artist in the family friendly film “Moms’ Night Out” (starring Patricia Heaton, Sean Astin, Sarah Drew), and as MercyMe’s real-life manager, Brickell, in the box office smash “I Can Only Imagine.” The film was the third biggest selling movie on its opening weekend in America. His latest role was as a grandiloquent former general in the film “Badland” which was released in select theaters and on Amazon Prime Video and Apple TV in November 2019. Adkins is currently joining fellow country music star Blake Shelton on his Friends and Heroes 2020 Tour in 16 markets across the United States and will kick off his The Way I Wanna Go 2020 on April 15.
