Tracy Darrell Adkins is an American country singer, songwriter, and actor. In 1998, Adkins appeared on the PBS music program Austin City Limits. Adkins made his debut in 1996 with the album Dreamin’ Out Loud, released on Capitol Records Nashville.
But since then he made the headlines for all the right reasons because he helped a lot of veterans and showed his respect for our country!
NFL players protest is a national sick joke!! They picked the wrong forum and manner on this issue.
The national anthem and flag are honored at sporting events for veterans that served and gave their life for our country.
NFL players abuse women and yes there are some bad cops but Disrespecting Country, veterans, and a flag is a dishonor, not a protest!! The right to protest does not make it right!!
And Trace showed his opinion on this topic with his latest performance!
On October 4th, Adkins took the stage at the Grand Ole Opry and decided to sing his feeling out about the topic. Instead of going on a political rant, Adkins belted out the song “Still a Soldier,” and the rest was history.
The lyrics, “he’ll stand up when he hears the anthem and that will never change because he’s still a soldier,” were enough to make the audience at the Grand Ole Opry cheer Adkins on.
“The stage is not the place for a political rant about your political views,” Trace told Rare Country in a recent interview. “I’m not going to subject people to that.”
You can almost feel the power in the room when Adkins sings the song.
“Every time I sing that lyric live, people sing it louder than you would believe,” he said. “Whenever I sing it, I think about that guy watching football on a Sunday afternoon who has to struggle to get up on his feet through the pain of arthritis, or because he uses prosthetics. I always have that vision in my head.”
In addition to his powerful patriotic lyrics, Adkins is known for bringing veterans onstage.
“I want to give them an opportunity to come up on the stage and have the audience honor them,” he said. “I’ve always wanted it to be about them — the veterans.”
