(September 8, 2016 – Nashville, TN) – Wheelhouse Records has rolled out Trace Adkins’ lyric video for “Lit” on VEVO today as proof that summer ain’t over just yet…


As the nights cool, this video is a flashback to the carnival rides, fun games and fair food of the county fair as the up-tempo single counts down the great things in life that get you fired up.

In the song, Granny’s playin’ Bingo, Grandpa’s fishin’ with dynamite, there’s “Sunday morning brimstone from a Pentecostal pastor,” and, “Keith Richards stoned on Rock ‘n Roll tearin’ up that Telecaster.” But nothing revs up this cowboy more than his girl as he croons, “slide on over, move a little closer with that four-alarm, fire-engine-red on your lips. So hot, you got me smokin’, girl you got it goin’ on, you’re the only one with the kiss that gets me lit.”


“Lit” was written by Mickey Jack Cones, Monty Criswell and Derek George and will appear on his upcoming album with Wheelhouse Records (BBR Music Group) – release date to be announced.  


Aavailable at iTunes and all other digital retailers and streaming partners.



Trace Adkins roared back into 2016 with the release of “Jesus and Jones,” and “Lit,” his first two singles with BBR Music Group’s Wheelhouse Records. In the first, he walks the line between Saturday night and Sunday morning is an instant classic from a man with an angel on one shoulder and a devil on the other. It’s par for the course from Adkins, whose trademark baritone has powered countless hits and sold over 10 million albums, cumulatively. The hit list includes “You’re Gonna Miss This,” “Ladies Love Country Boys,” “Songs About Me,” “Every Light In The House,” “Hillbilly Bone” (Blake Shelton & Trace Adkins), and “Just Fishin’,” to name a few.


The Grammy-nominated member of the Grand Ole Opry is a TV personality, actor, author and spokesman for the American Red Cross, for whom he raised over $1.5 million dollars as winner of NBC’s All-Star Celebrity Apprentice. Thus far, Adkins has performed 11 USO Tours.


Trace has played a tough as nails biker in The Lincoln Lawyer (starring Matthew McConaughey), a wise tattoo artist in the family-friendly Moms’ Night Out (starring Patricia Heaton, Sean Astin, Sarah Drew) and will appear in the upcoming Lionsgate release, Deepwater Horizon (Matt Damon)
