Trace Adkins sings his hit “Still a Soldier,” live at the Grand Ole Opry.

Trace Adkins was officially inducted into the Grand Ole Opry August 23, 2003. By then, he’d already hit No. 1 with “(This Ain’t) No Thinkin’ Thing,” had four Top 10 albums to his credit, and notched 10 Top 20 hits.

A former oil driller, Adkins made his country music debut in 1995 with his album Dreamin’ Out Loud. Since then, he’s released 10 more studio albums and gone to No. 1 with hits like “(This Ain’t) No Thinkin’ Thing,” “You’re Gonna Miss This,” and “Ladies Love Country Boys.”

Adkins has also taken his talent to several television and movie productions, including voicing the character of Elvin on Fox’s King of the Hill, playing a patient on The Night Shift, and exhibiting his acting chops on the big screen in The Virginian and most recently in Stagecoach: The Texas Jack Story.

Recently, the multitalented country star made a stop at the historic Ryman Auditorium in Nashville to perform his 2017 song dedicated to military service members, “Still a Soldier.”
