Fans Can Earn Free Tickets by Purchasing Miller Lite or MGD at Fry’s Food & Drug Stores
(PHOENIX) The Arizona Diamondbacks announced today that they are teaming up with Miller Brewing, Fry’s Food & Drug Stores and KNIX Radio to host a concert featuring country music recording artist and “The Celebrity Apprentice” runner-up Trace Adkins on May 17 at Chase Field. The post-game concert will take place on the field following the 5:10 p.m. game against the Detroit Tigers. The concert is free with a ticket to that night’s game.
Ten years into his recording career as a country chartbuster, with dozens of hits under his belt and nine top-selling albums, Adkins has entered into elite territory. The man known for his imposing physical stature, world-class baritone and bedrock authenticity has clearly earned his place among the most identifiable and important artists of his generation. Adkins has built a solid career and a strong fan base by recording songs that possess insightful lyrics and cover a wide range of interests many from his own life experiences.
Over the past decade, Adkins has racked up a long string of hits including “Every Light in the House is On,” “(This Ain’t) No Thinkin’ Thing.” “I Left Something Turned On at Home,” “Hot Mama,” “I’m Tryin’,” “Rough & Ready,” “Arlington,” “Songs About Me,” “Honky Tonk Badonkadonk,” “Ladies Love Country Boys,” “I Wanna Feel Something” and “I Got My Game On.” Adkins has also sold millions of records, won dozens of industry awards and became a member of the prestigious Grande Ole Opry.
His current album, American Man, Greatest Hits Volume II, features many of his recent hits and new singles, such as “You’re Gonna Miss This,” which hit No. 1 on the country charts this week. The double-platinum Songs About Me release in 2005 featured the monster hit “Honky Tonk Badonkadonk.” The song ruled the country charts, with digital downloads surpassing 800,000 and more than 500,000 ringtone purchases an impressive feat in a market primarily dominated by R&B and hip-hop. His 2006 release of Dangerous Man scored the biggest first-week sales in his career and became his third CD to make its entry at the top of the charts.
Adkins reached another level of celebrity when he appeared on NBC’s primetime hit “The Celebrity Apprentice” with Donald Trump over the last five months. He competed against other celebrities on the weekly show to raise money for the Food Allergy and Anaphylaxis Network (FAAN). After his six-year-old daughter had a life-threatening reaction to peanut butter when she was just 18-months old, Adkins hopes that research could lead to a better understanding of food allergies and perhaps one day find a cure.
