Trace Adkins Vevo
Oftentimes, when you’re first getting to know someone, you ask them a series of questions so you can develop a better understanding of who they are. One of those questions is typically, “What’s your favorite color?” Their answers usually vary, and can range from anything to purple, to red, to yellow.
But if you were to ask the leading lady in one of Trace Adkins‘ biggest hits what her favorite color is, she’d have an unexpected answer for you…chrome.
Released as the third single off of his album of the same title, “Chrome” was one of the biggest country songs of 2002. It broke into the Top 10 on the Billboard country charts and also earned a place on the Billboard Hot 100.
The song is all about a woman who has a passion for cars, and hence loves the color chrome. As Adkins sings, “Forget pink and purple paisleys/little mellow-yellow daisies/Ain’t no pot of gold in her rainbow/Her favorite color is…chrome.”
Directed by Michael Salomon, who later directed Adkins’ music videos for “Songs About Me,” “Ladies Love Country Boys,” and many others, the music video for “Chrome” shows Adkins relaxing in the back of a convertible at a car show. That’s when the leading lady of the song shows up, as she fawns over all of the shiny cars and motorcycles on display.
Like the song itself, the music video is one huge showcase of everything chrome. After you watch the video below, you may find yourself considering chrome your new favorite color!
While the main woman in “Chrome” gets hyped up whenever she sees her favorite glittering color, Adkins sings about the other things that can make a person go wild in his new single “Lit.” Singing about everything from a grandpa fishing with dynamite to the love of a good woman, Adkins explains there are all sorts of things in life that can make a person feel “Lit.”
There’s no music video for Adkins’ boot stompin’ new single yet, but you can enjoy his live performance in the clip below. If the song makes you feel “Lit,” then you can purchase it on iTunes here!
