Trace Adkins Facebook
Anyone who’s been a fan of Trace Adkins for some time knows that the man loves his country. He’s been on countless USO tours and is a strong supporter of our nation’s troops. It’s something he’s always been passionate about, and he’s since become one of country music’s most outspoken supporters of American troops.
When it comes to his music, Adkins has no problems with expressing his American pride. Songs such as “Arlington” and “American Man” showcase just how much appreciation Adkins has for the men and women who serve our country and make it great.
Yet another song with a patriotic punch to it is 2006’s “Fightin’ Words,” which was released on Adkins’ album Dangerous Man. Although never released as a single, “Fightin’ Words” has a powerful message that managed to last after all these years.
In the song, Adkins sings about how he’s a peace-loving man at heart who doesn’t look for fights. But he reveals there a few things people say that always set him off every time.
On the list of things Adkins advises you not to speak negatively about in front of him: his mama, his dog, his God, or his country.
The end, which is spoken rather than sang, serves as Adkins’ final warning message. He recognizes someone’s First Amendment rights, but says those rights don’t protect them from him. So if they mess with his mama, his country, or anything else on the list, then they’re asking for a fight.
Adkins loves his country so much that he won’t tolerate anyone talking it down. You can listen to his warning to such people in his powerful song, “Fightin’ Words,” which is in the clip below.
