In 2008, everyone in country music was talking about one powerful song. Called "In Color," the tune was released by Jamey Johnson off of his album That Lonesome Song.
"In Color" went on to become Johnson's first Top 10 hit, peaking at the 9th spot on the chart. Country music couldn't get enough of the song, which both the ACM and CMA awarded the Song of the Year award.
But few people know that the song was not originally intended for Johnson. Although he co-wrote the song, he actually had it set up to give to Trace Adkins for his upcoming album.
Before Adkins recorded the tune, Johnson had a change of heart and asked permission to record it himself. Adkins agreed, and that's how Johnson's recording came to be.
Adkins still decided to record his own rendition of "In Color," and featured it as an iTune exclusive track off of his album, X. Thank goodness Adkins continued to go through with his plans to record the song, because we think it's an ideal fit for him and his voice.
With past releases such as "Arlington" and "You're Gonna Miss This," Adkins proved that he was capable of singing humble songs about humble situations and people. He proved that same thing once more with his rendition of "In Color," which is sure to soothe your soul when you listen to it in the clip below.
As evidence of his versatility, Adkins is just as well-known for his fun-lovin' hits as he is for his heartfelt tunes such as his version of "In Color." One song that falls into the former category is his latest single "Lit," which you need to listen immediately if you haven't already.
True to its name, "Lit" is a fiery tune jam-packed with Adkins' signature confidence and swagger. It's one of those songs that you can't help but crank up and dance along to, no matter where you may be.
