Trace Adkins has an amazing story. I just watched "backstory" on Great American Country. Trace Adkins, a famous country music star, had three wives including one wife that shot and nearly killed him. Trace had several chances on life aside from the near death shooting. He drank excessively and battled depression. He gave up singing and went back to work the oil fields when he realized his lifestyle ruined his first marriage. I picked two songs that show two sides to this living country music legend.

Honky Tonk Badonkadonk typifies the party side of Trace Adkin and fuses country and rock.

You're Gonna Miss shows the nostalgic, touching side of Trace Adkins. Trace originally didn't want to perform You're Gonna Miss because he considered it too personal -- he has several daughters, including one that got married right before he did perform the song.

    Like both but gave the edge to Badonkadonk because of the video.

    You're Gonna Miss This
    I love You're gonna miss this. I just became a grandmother for the first time, and it struck me that my lil girl was a mother now. I can still see here running around with pig tails and that wonderful childish enthusiasm most little ones have. I miss those times with her , but now I get to see my grand-daughter grow up.

    Don't get me wrong, I love Honky Tonk (Two words: Music Video!), but one of the reasons I love country is because of how personal the message of some of the songs can be.

    This is more real-life Trace Adkins. The other's fun for the youngsters, but it's not me.

    I'm not an avid country listener. But we're planning our wedding, and I'm considering having this song be the song for me and my dad to dance to.

    Once I wrote song lyrics for rock 'n roll, JLL recorded it as a hillbilly Western.

    Thanks for sharing this video, although, I have never heard of Trace Adkins because I am not that much a big fan of country music.

    Great song.
  • sglmom 2011/05/16 05:46:40
    You're Gonna Miss This
    I find Honky Tonk so /snappy/ and easy listening to ..

    but this one is very much my favorite and speaks volumes to me ... (and I am sure that it speaks to all parents too ... )
