Trace Adkins confirmed that Proud To Be Here will be released August 2, 2011 by Show Dog – Universal Music.
“Proud To Be Here was chosen as the album title some weeks ago because it’s how I’ve felt ever since my first album release and during every milestone since," said Adkins.
The album contains 10 tracks with an additional 4 tracks appearing on the Deluxe Edition. The Deluxe Edition includes Trace and Blake Shelton on a hilarious response song called “If I Was a Woman,” co-written by Trace Adkins, Sherrie Austin, Jeff Bates and Kenny Beard.
Trace’s own co-writing is more prominent on Proud To Be Here than on previous releases – a fact he attributes to the creative environment he has established on his farm outside of Nashville.
