Trace Adkins will surprise everyone with his newest studio album, ‘Love Will,’ which is set to be released this spring. While it has a love-driven title, it may not be full of romantic, sappy songs like you would think.

Trace cautions and says it may be about love but it might not be sappy. This is an album of love songs but in his book, ‘Hot Mama’ and [Honky Tonk] Badonkadonk’ are love songs!” Adkins explains. “So don’t start thinking these are all ‘I’ll love you ’til the end of time’ ballads … but yeah, we’ve got those, too.”

This will be Adkins’ 11th studio album . He describes it as a collection of “sexy grooves, heart-wrenching ballads and up-tempo anthems." There will also be several special guests, who are yet to be announced and I hope he keeps you his tradition of putting a gospel song on his album.  "Wayfaring Stranger" is still one of my favorite songs that he's recorded

Trace is a busy man these days with his current role on NBC’s ‘All-Star Celebrity Apprentice,’ involvement with the Red Cross and brand new forthcoming album. Adkins invites his fans to get in on the fun, offering online tasks relating to his various roles, which can lead to prizes such as an autographed Trace Adkins-branded guitar, a cruise with the singer in 2014, or even a chance to see the finale of ‘All-Star Celebrity Apprentice’ live!

You can pre-order the album here, do it now or ‘You’re Gonna Miss This’ terrific new album.  He's also going to be a part of the first and only 3 day country music festival in the Northeast.  It's the Taste of Country Music Festival, June 13-15 at Hunter Mountain.
