Trace Adkins has served as the voice behind some of country music's greatest songs about children and family..."You're Gonna Miss This," "Then They Do," and so on. In the same vein as these songs is Adkins' 2011 release "Just Fishin'," which focuses on the relationship between a father and daughter.
In the song, the narrator sings about taking his daughter on a fishing trip, and how that's all she views it as. But to him, the moment means so much more, and he knows they are making memories that will last a lifetime.
As a father to five daughters, Adkins can personally relate to the words in "Just Fishin'." Adkins added an even more personal touch to "Just Fishin'" when he featured one of his daughters in the song's touching music video.
Adkins' youngest daughter, Trinity, made her music video debut in "Just Fishin'" at only six years old. In a behind the scenes clip from the making of the video, Adkins joked that she made the perfect co-star because she worked for cheap!
In addition to Trinity being his co-star, another personal touch in Adkins' music video for "Just Fishin'" is the fact that it was shot at his own farm.
"This is the most convenient location I've ever done a video on," he said. "I just woke up, came outside, started shooting,"
The video was directed by Trey Fanjoy, who has directed a handful of Adkins' other videos, perhaps most notably for "Arlington." Adkins said that when it came to creating the emotions involved in "Just Fishin'" he knew that Fanjoy was the person for the job.
"She, for me, when we're going for that sensitivity, I go to Trey," he said. "She always gives me that. She was my go-to gal on this video."
You can catch a glimpse behind the scenes of the stunning video Fanjoy directed for "Just Fishin'" in the clip below.
Spending time with family is something that always fills us up with happiness. There are many other things in life that make us feel good, like going fishing or sitting next to the person we love.
Well as it turns out, Adkins' latest single captures that exact feeling. Called "Lit," the song covers a variety of things that give people a good thrill and a reason to smile.
