Trace Adkins Drops His New Album And Prepares For His Thrasher-Horne Main Stage Debut

With over 11 million in album sales, three Grammy nominations, and dozens of major motion pictures and television credits to his name, Trace Adkins always has something going on. It is that constant motion and creative diversity that has fueled his latest music, the much-anticipated forthcoming and aptly titled Something’s Going On – his 12th studio album – scheduled for release on March 31. Something’s Going On marks Adkins’ first album release on his new label, BBR Music Group / Wheelhouse Records. The first single off Something’s Going On, “Watered Down,” appeared on Country radio the 13th of this month. It’s been four years since Adkins’ last studio album Love Will… released in 2013, which debuted in the top ten on Billboard’s Top Country Albums chart, and fans have eagerly awaited this follow up ever since.

“When I first heard ‘Watered Down’ I felt an immediate connection with what I wanted to say. A man comes to a point in his life where he begins to reflect on his past and what he’s learned and that’s what fueled this song,” shares Adkins. “If you’ve led the kind of life I’ve led, at some point you have to temper your vices.”

With new music already being rehearsed, Adkins’ 2017 Tour will launch on February 4, and will hit our Northeast Florida stage April 27th.  As a gift to his fans, Adkins is offering a physical copy of Something’s Going On with each ticket order to his concert in Orange Park.

Adkins’ trademark baritone has powered countless hits to the top of the charts. The three-time GRAMMY-nominated member of the Grand Ole Opry is a TV personality, actor, author, and spokesman for the Wounded Warrior Project and the American Red Cross, for whom he raised over $1.5 million dollars as winner of NBC’s All-Star Celebrity Apprentice.

In recent years, Adkins has performed for our service men and women across 11 USO Tours, with his 12th scheduled later this Spring. In his 2007 autobiography, A Personal Stand: Observations and Opinions from a Freethinking Roughneck, he recounted his rise to fame, brushes with death, and battles with personal demons. Trace has played a tough as nails biker in The Lincoln Lawyer (starring Matthew McConaughey), a desperate father in Deepwater Horizon (starring Mark Wahlberg) and a wise oracle of a tattoo artist in the family-friendly film Moms’ Night Out (starring Patricia Heaton, Sean Astin, Sarah Drew).

A CLOSER LOOK – Kenny Rogers & Linda Davis

Some of the most interesting details of a stage production can sometimes only be seen by the people on stage. Here at the Thrasher-Horne, we try our best to give you an inside look at all aspects of our performances. We want you to see all angles of your favorite shows and artists… more than just the view from your seat. If we can get access to it, so should you! It’s with this mentality that we bring you a new regular feature on the blog – A CLOSER LOOK. This will be our opportunity to take you into the spotlights, through the stage door, and into every nook and cranny backstage to show you how your night of entertainment comes to be – from load-in to load-out.

Kenny Rogers took the stage at the Thrasher-Horne on January 28th, 2017, with good friend Linda Davis joining him for a stunning retrospective throughout the history and music that makes up his phenomenal career. Check out some close-up shots from the performance below.

‘An Evening With Olivia Newton-John’ Coming To Our Mainstage In March!

Internationally recognized four-time Grammy Award-winning singer, actress, community activist and breast cancer “thriver” OLIVIA NEWTON-JOHN performs live in concert at Thrasher-Horne Center on Saturday, March 4, 2017, brought to you by Get Off The Bus Concerts and Easy 106.5, with a portion of the net proceeds going to support Pink Ribbon Symposium in their fight to eliminate breast cancer!

With a career spanning over five decades and more than 100 million albums sold, Olivia Newton-John’s successes include four Grammys, numerous Country Music, American Music, Billboard and People’s Choice Awards, an Emmy Award, ten #1 hits and more than 15 top 10 singles. She recently scored another #1 hit, this time on the Billboard Dance Club Songs chart with her daughter Chloe Lattanzi – becoming the first mother/daughter duo to top this chart. In 1978, her co-starring role with John Travolta in “Grease” catapulted Olivia into super-stardom and to date remains the most successful movie musical of all time.

In 1992, Olivia was diagnosed with breast cancer. Her personal triumph against cancer led her to announce her partnership with the Austin Health and the creation of the Olivia Newton-John Cancer Wellness & Research Centre (ONJCWRC) in her hometown of Melbourne, Australia, which opened its doors in 2012. The Centre provides a comprehensive range of services and facilities for cancer treatment, education, training and research as well as a dedicated wellness center (oliviaappeal.com).

Her latest recording, “LIV ON,” a collaborative, inspiring new CD with friends Beth Nielsen Chapman and Amy Sky is intended for those who wish to transcend loss while walking a journey toward new-found meaning and hope, was recently released to critical acclaim. For more information visit OliviaNewton-John.com or follow her on Twitter @OliviaNJ or Instagram @TheRealONJ.
