Trace Adkins Shares His Thoughts On Vaccines

YouTube/Club Random Podcast

Country music artist Trace Adkins recently shared his thoughts on various topics, including COVID-19 vaccines, during an appearance on Bill Maher’s “Club Random” podcast.

Trace Adkin’s Opinion on Vaccines

During the conversation, Adkins revealed that his mother has battled COVID-19 three times and had successfully overcome it, assuming that by the third time she had built a natural immunity to the virus. Adkins himself had contracted COVID twice but emphasized that he received the vaccine.

“So you didn’t think the vaccine had a chip in it to track you?” Maher asked, referencing conspiracy theories that have circulated about the COVID-19 vaccine.

Adkins dismissed the idea, stating, “I just don’t buy all of that crap. Give me a vaccine for everything that you’ve got one for. I’ll take them. I’m not scared of that. I don’t think they’re trying to put something in the vaccines to control us.”

Adkin’s Thoughts on Jason Aldean and Morgan Wallen

The conversation on the podcast also delved into the controversies surrounding fellow country music singers Jason Aldean and Morgan Wallen. Adkins and Maher discussed the backlash against Aldean’s music video for “Try That In A Small Town,” which was filmed at the Maury County Courthouse, a site associated with racial violence. Adkins defended Aldean, explaining that the singer likely had no knowledge of the location’s history and that directors often choose locations based on visual aesthetics.

 “​​He had no idea, man. Do you know how many music videos I’ve done that I’ve called up the director and went, ‘Hey, man, now what about this location where we’re shooting this thing?’ And if I did do that, it’s only because I didn’t know where I was going. He [Aldean] had no idea. That director picked that location because it had the look they wanted. It was just a small-town courthouse, that’s all it was. And it happened to be close.”

Maher’s also brought up Morgan Wallen’s 2021 controversy when a video surfaced of him using a racial slur, with Adkins expressing his belief that attempts to “cancel” artists are “silly” and suggest that the backlash could ironically boost their popularity.

“He sold out two nights in a row, 55,000-plus tickets each night,” Adkins said. “God…cancel me,” he joked.

“The grievance junkies turn on somebody and they try to cancel them, and all it’s going to do, he’s going to sell more records than he ever has and it’s going to make him bigger than he’s ever been.”
