“Proud to Be Here” with Trace Adkins

My husband and I had the privilege of attending a concert at the Lynden WA fair, where country singer Trace Adkins put on a great show.

I like his new CD, “Proud to Be Here,” and love the deep bass voice. One of my favorites on his new album and one he sang last night was “Just Fishin’,” talking about fishing with his daughter and what that means to him. He also teams up with Blake Shelton on this CD with “If I was a Woman,” a fun song poking fun at each other.

One thing I can’t figure out about concerts, indoors or out, is why the speakers are turned up so loud that you can physically feel the bass thumping against your chest. And we are there to hear the singer, but we couldn’t really hear him very well because of that. Is it the venue organizers or is it because the band is accustomed to playing in bigger arenas?

I did enjoy being there, being part of an enthusiastic crowd, and seeing Adkins in person. Just wish I could’ve recognized my favorite songs a little easier.
