Trace Adkins & Friends Will Perform at Ryman Auditorium on March 21 at 7:30PM

NASHVILLE, Tenn.—In recent years, country icon Trace Adkins has made it his mission through his music to give back to those who need it most. The singer/songwriter was a spokesperson for both the Wounded Warrior Project and the American Red Cross and has participated in 12 USO Tours for our service men and women. On March 21 at the historic Ryman Auditorium, Adkins will be teaming up with a handful of musical friends to benefit Mental Health America of Middle Tennessee.

“Jammin’ to Beat the Blues” with Trace Adkins & Friends will feature an exciting lineup of some of today’s best artists, including one of the most celebrated vocalists in Christian music, Jason Crabb. The GRAMMY Award winner and recipient of 21 GMA Dove Awards has performed on some of the most prestigious stages across the world and is known for his powerful, emotive voice. More special guests will be announced in the coming weeks.

“Jason’s career highlights, with multiple Dove Awards and a GRAMMY will impress you but his incredible voice will move you,” shares Adkins.

Adkins released his 12th studio album Something’s Going On last March and has seen major success with songs like “Watered Down” (Adkins’ personal favorite) and current single “Still a Soldier,” which pays tribute to veterans and again highlights the compassion and dedication the artist has for those around him.
