Adkins, better known for hits such as "You're Gonna Miss This," and "Honky Tonk Badonkadonk," is a long-time supporter of the military and recently recorded several radio public service announcements with his new song, "Tough People Do."
This is his third trip to Fort Sill to perform for the military community. He is also a spokesman for the Wounded Warriors Project, and he was a past honoree at their Courage Awards and Benefit Dinner, where he was recognized for his efforts to help raise awareness for the men and women who have been wounded in service to their country. He's performed on seven USO tours in the past 11 years; most recently in December in Okinawa and at U.S. bases on the Japanese mainland.
Adkins made his debut in 1995 with the album "Dreamin' Out Loud." He is also author and an actor, both on television and in the movies. May has been busy on the reality show "Celebrity Apprentice," but whether or not he makes it in coming rounds he'll definitely be taking time off to perform for Fort Sill on Polo Field, July 5.
Adkins has released nine studio albums and 30 singles on the country charts. His songs include; "Every Light in the House," "(This Ain't) No Thinkin' Thing," "I Left Something Turned On at Home," "Rough and Ready," "Ladies Love Country Boys," "Marry For Money," "Brown Chicken, Brown Cow," and "Ala-Freakin-Bama," among others.
Adkins has racked up more than 30 hits on the singles charts, four Grammy nominations and five Academy of Country Music and Country Music Television awards in his 17 years as a country artist.
The concert is co-produced by Fort Sill's Directorate of Family and Morale, Welfare and Recreation and the U.S. Army FMWR Command, Army Entertainment Division and is part of the Army Concert Tour. It is slated for July 5 as the highlight of the post Independence Day celebration. For more information, call the Adventure Travel office at 580-250-4040.
