Neither snow nor rain nor heat nor gloom of night stays these couriers from the swift completion of their appointed rounds. Apparently Trace Adkins is a fervent supporter of the U.S. Postal Service, or at least their motto. Adhering to the strict legacy of the show must go on Trace is about to kick off his spring tour despite the inclemency terrorizing most the nation.
True country fans remember the most notorious example of weather putting the kabash on a show that frightful night in 1952 involving Hank Sr. I do not think we are in danger of the same fate befalling Trace, my example was only to prove the conviction of entertainers.
Coming off the heels of his successful holiday shows, the annual Christmas Show Tour, Adkins is not jumping in the ice bath just yet. No, he plans on dipping a toe first and easing in by starting the tour in Orlando, Fl at Universal Studios. Shortly after that the whole thing goes south, or …north rather, as Trace will find himself in Minnesota before climbing deeper in to my own freezing version hell in Ontario. Nothing against Canada, it is the frigid clutches of the snow miser I abhor. He’s too much.
Trace then works his way back down through New York and Pennsylvania before teasing himself by stopping in Ft. Lauderdale, Fl only to be in Illinois a few days later. Then by May he will be in California and Nevada. What a cruel joke. Does he owe back taxes or something? That is the only reason I can come up with for touring the north in the dead of winter. Or possibly my other theory, that despite being native to Louisiana, Trace Adkins is indeed a Sasquatch.
