Hear Trace Adkins’ New Single, ‘Watered Down’
Trace Adkins has shared a brand-new tune, “Watered Down,” as the first single from his forthcoming new album, Something’s Going On. Readers can press play below to hear the tune and see its lyric video.
Written by Matt Jenkins, Trevor Rosen and Shane McAnally, “Watered Down” is a ballad that finds Adkins reflecting on growing up, settling down and raising a little less hell: “I don’t go all in, but I’ll take a gamble / And I don’t burn both ends of the candle anymore … We still like our whiskey / Now it’s just a little watered down.”
Although Adkins has previously released “Jesus and Jones” and “Lit” as singles, and both will appear on Something’s Going On, a press release reports that “Watered Down” is the project’s first official single.
“When I first heard “Watered Down,” I felt an immediate connection with what I wanted to say,” Adkins explains. “A man comes to a point in his life where he begins to reflect on his past and what he’s learned, and that’s what fueled this song. If you’ve led the kind of life I’ve led, at some point you have to temper your vices.”
Adkins’ 12th studio album, Something’s Going On, will drop on March 31; it will be his first release on BBR Music Group’s Wheelhouse Records. The record, which is available for pre-order on iTunes, was produced by Mickey Jack Cones; songwriters featured on the project include Tyler Farr, Craig Campbell and more.
