Trace Adkins first captured my attention with his video “This Ain’t No Thinkin’ Thing”. In this video Trace Adkins moves in a way that women who saw the video will never forget. Trace Adkins is probably the tallest country music star out there right now and in his videos you can see both power and an ability to be affectionate. Trace Adkins can make you scream his lyrics at the top of your lungs when you his some of his best songs, like “Honky Tonk Badonkadonk”.

You will also find yourself deeply moved by some of his songs, such as “I’m Trying”. Trace Adkins is truly a versatile singer. I feel Trace Adkins will become another country music legend, like George Jones, Johnny Cash, and Waylon Jennings. If you haven’t experienced Trace Adkins here are ten great songs to start with:

10. “Help Me Understand” from Trace Adkins’ Chrome album is one of Trade Adkins’ most sorrowful songs. The song is about a breakup and how he doesn’t understand how things can go on now that she’s gone. He’s asking her to explain and help him understand what to do now. The song is truly powerful and if you’ve ever been dumped, you’ll truly appreciate this song and understand the lyrics very well.

9. “I’m Trying” also from Trace Adkins album Chrome is another song about breakup. His ex-wife keeps calling and asking for more money and he has to work two shifts to keep up with his alimony and the money to pay for his bills. The song is very moving and depicts the life of a divorcee very well. It’s a constant struggle for the man in this song and whether you’ve been through a divorce or not, you’ll understand how he keeps working and failing and working even harder; we’ve all been there.

8. “I Left Something Turned On at Home” is from Trace Adkins’ album Dreamin’ Out Loud, which was actually Trace Adkins debut album. The song is about a guy hanging out with his friends and how he needs to get home because his wife is more than in the mood. The lyrics explain it really well, “It ain’t the stove, it ain’t the heater. She’s hotter and a whole lot sweeter.”

7. “Every Light in the House is On” is also from Trace Adkins’ album Dreamin’ Out Loud. The song is yet again about a woman leaving a guy and he vows to leave every light in the house on until she comes home, just in case she “ever gets tired of being gone”.

6. “Swing” from Trace Adkins’ album Dangerous Man is one of those rocking country songs that Trace Adkins does so well. It’s about men approaching a woman in a bar and striking out with each bad line they say to her. “Hey baby, now what’s your sign?”

5. “This Ain’t No Thinkin’ Thing” from Trace Adkins’ album Dreamin’ Out Loud was the song that set the country music world on fire, or at least introduced it to Trace Adkins. In this song he explains how love shouldn’t be thought about with the brain, but felt with the heart. “This ain’t no thinkin’ thing. Right brain, let brain. It goes a little deeper than that.

4. “Hot Mama” from Trace Adkins’ album Comin’ on Strong is one most women simply love. In this song he’s telling his wife how it doesn’t matter that her body has changed since high school. He loves her the way she is, maybe a little more since she’s put on weight. Now what woman doesn’t want a man like that?

3. “Songs About Me” from Trace Adkins’ album Songs About Me really explains what country music is all about. A man approaches Trace and asks him why he sings country songs. He thinks that all country music is depressing. Trace tells him that he sings these songs because they are songs about him and invites him to attend one of his shows. The guy quickly realizes that Trace Adkins’ songs are songs about him as well.

2. “Rough and Ready” also from Trace Adkins album Songs About Me is another one of his songs that has some serious kick. In this song he talks about how he’s a redneck and what you see is what you get. It really can’t be explained, this song must be experienced.

1. “Honky Tonk Badonkadonk” from Trace Adkins’ album Songs About Me is one of the most rocking country songs I’ve ever heard. It’s about a really hot woman who has the complete attention of all the men in a bar and the band is trying to impress her with their playing. You must hear this song; it’s by far the best Trace Adkins’ song EVER. In just a few weeks, this song was downloaded to be used as a ring tone 75,000 times!
