“12” must be Trace Adkins’ lucky number this year.
On March 31, Trace will release his 12th studio album, Something’s Going On, a 12-song offering that features the single, “Watered Down.” Trace’s dozenth album also happens to coincide with his upcoming 12th USO Tour this spring, an overseas outing that Trace is once again looking forward to.
“Well, it’s the most appreciative audience you’ll ever play for, I’ll tell you that,” says Trace to Nash Country Daily. “Over the years, I have gotten more comfortable with feeling guilty when you come home. I tell people that if somebody’s going to go do their first USO Tour and they asked me what to expect, I tell them the same thing that I was told the first time I went, ‘Expect to feel guilty when you come home.’ Over the years I’ve come to be okay with that and accept it. I haven’t been able to stop feeling guilty when I come home, but at least I can deal with it better now. Having said that, I’m really looking forward to my 12th tour.”
