Trace Adkins is one of country music’s most accomplished entertainers. The instantly recognizable baritone has earned 30 charted singles and 15 top 10 hits and gold, platinum and multi-platinum albums with total sales surpassing $10 million. His latest album, “Proud to be Here,” features the hit “Just Fishin’” and his latest single, “Million Dollar View.”

But Adkins is also as big a hunter, outdoorsman and Second Amendment supporter as he is a country music icon. In fact, the 6-foot 6-inch star has partnered with NRA Country to help deliver the word to the mass media that it’s cool to like guns and love America. He recently invited cameras to his farm near Nashville, Tenn., so fans can get a glimpse of his lifestyle and some of his guns.See the exclusive video only at NRACountry.com.

“I grew up in Sportsman’s Paradise—Louisiana,” says Adkins, “so I guess it isn’t a surprise that the great outdoors has always been a big part of my life. All my favorite memories involve the outdoors, whether it was playing outside as a kid, goofing around with my kids or going hunting.”

Fans also can catch Trace Adkins at the NRA Country Jam II on April 13 during the NRA Annual Meetings in St. Louis. If you want to see Adkins in concert and help charity at the same time, get great tickets and VIP charity packages at NRA Country.com; proceeds will benefit NRA Country Cares, a charitable foundation that supports America’s veterans and farmers, and firearm safety programs.

A member of the Grand Ole Opry, Adkins was raised on country and gospel music. He’s known as a traditionalist who speaks his mind and honors the past. He has five daughters and is a family man to the core. He’s a former oil rigger who works his farm with his own hands. His “gruff” demeanor hides a self-deprecating, humble man with the coolness that comes from defeating death and realizing everything else is small stuff. When a fire claimed his Tennessee home in June, 2011, Trace first made sure his family was unharmed, then immediately redirected his fans’ offers of support to the Red Cross.

NRA Country is a celebration of American values that made the country so great, including respect, honor and freedom. It’s a lifestyle and a bond between the country music community and hard-working Americans everywhere. It’s powered by pride, freedom, love of country, respect for the military and the responsibilities of protecting the great American life.NRA Country will be involved in causes that defend our values and it will empower our artist friends who promote these values to encourage our next generation of leaders. Says the country star: “I support NRA Country because it shares my love of the outdoors and my wish to safeguard America’s hunting heritage. I am Trace Adkins and I am NRA Country.”

Each month a new artist is featured on NRACountry.com, highlighting what makes him or her “NRA Country.” To learn more about the latest events visit NRACountry.com and follow NRA Country on Twitter.
