When Trace Adkins announced his plans to release a new album, he thrilled fans by providing them with a new single as well. That single was “Watered Down,” which managed to make its way on the U.S. Country Airplay chart.
“Watered Down” has also helped reestablish Adkins as a powerful force in the country music community. But at the same time, the song recognizes the fact that Adkins is older, and therefore not as wild as he may have been in his early days. Still, there’s a bit of that crazy spark inside that he knows he’ll never get rid of.
As compelling as “Watered Down” is in the recorded version, you have to hear Adkins sing it live. The best way to do that would be by snagging tickets to one of his shows. Adkins is touring all over the country this year, bringing “Watered Down” and his classic hits to a city near you. You can get concert tickets and learn more about the tour by visiting Adkins’ website here.
If you can’t catch Adkins on tour, we have the next best thing for you. To celebrate the release of Something’s Going On, Adkins hosted an album release party. He performed an hour-long set that night, which contained plenty of his classic hits and a wealth of new material from Something’s Going On.
It only made sense for Adkins to sing “Watered Down” that night, since it is his current single. With his band providing a soft accompaniment, Adkins bellowed out the lyrics about growing up and growing older, and what all of that means. His ability to connect to the song allowed him to portray it from an honest place, making it easy for the audience to connect to it as well.
You’ll also find yourself captivated by Adkins’ performance, even as you watch it through your screen. What else can we say? He’s just that good at drawing you in on this one!
