Oakland, CA (PRWEB) November 4, 2004
Standing 6Â6Â, cover boy and country music man Trace Adkins casts a long shadow on TALL MagazineÂs December issue Â the only consumer magazine serving the growing community of tall men and women. In its first-ever ÂmusicÂ issue, available on newsstands now, TALL reaches to all areas of music to profile a diverse variety of "giants" in their respective genres including Adkins, singer/songwriter Marshall Chapman, banjo player/storyteller Phil Van Tee, RexwayÂs bassist (and former female wrestler) Susan Phelan, Verve Pipe frontman Brian Vander Ark, along with a comprehensive listing of performers who Âgo for the raftersÂ with their musical talents.
ÂWorking on the cover story for this issue really allowed us to not only choose musicians who fall within the ÂtallÂ requirements, but also allowed us to highlight some amazing talent that some of our readers may not be aware of,Â said Everard Strong, the 6Â9Â editor of TALL. ÂWith each issue we are discovering specific topics worthy of becoming the focus of an issue Â such as travel, music, cars, and fashion Â and I believe that this issue will set the stage for an annual music issue for many years to come.Â
While being tall doesnÂt automatically translate into a bigger stage presence, it certainly doesnÂt hurt. Country music star and Louisiana native, Adkins confers. ÂIÂve always looked at it as a blessing,Â he says in an exclusive interview with TALL.
After exploding on the scene in 1996 with his platinum-selling DreaminÂ Out Loud, Adkins continues to be a mainstay on the country music charts while also pursuing his other interests outside of music including voice over work (heÂs been the voice of KFC), NASCAR, and voicing his views on the political scene.
Not to be overlooked, the December issue also features information on Âblogging,Â a tribute to Christopher ÂSupermanÂ Reeve, and a comprehensive article on flight travel and what many airlines offer the tall traveler by way of comfort, and how a few extra inches of pitch can mean the difference between an enjoyable flight and a lesson in discomfort. Not to be missed, the holiday fashion offerings are a refreshing collection of stylish and festive looks that cater to the reader by designers who specialize in tall couture. Regular columns, including ÂWatch Your Back,Â ÂTeen Talk,Â ÂTall Things Considered,Â and ÂShape Up,Â also offer topical advice and suggestions on all aspects of the tall lifestyle.
