December issue also Highlights Holiday Fashions, Airline Travel for Talls, and Product Reviews

Standing 6’6”, cover boy and country music man Trace Adkins casts a long shadow on TALL Magazine’s December issue – the only consumer magazine serving the growing community of tall men and women. In its first-ever “music” 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, Rexway’s bassist (and former female wrestler) Susan Phelan, Verve Pipe frontman Brian Vander Ark, along with a comprehensive listing of performers who “go for the rafters” with their musical talents.

“Working on the cover story for this issue really allowed us to not only choose musicians who fall within the ‘tall’ requirements, but also allowed us to highlight some amazing talent that some of our readers may not be aware of,” said Everard Strong, the 6’9” editor of TALL. “With each issue we are discovering specific topics worthy of becoming the focus of an issue — such as travel, music, cars, and fashion — and I believe that this issue will set the stage for an annual music issue for many years to come.”

While being tall doesn’t automatically translate into a bigger stage presence, it certainly doesn’t hurt. Country music star and Louisiana native, Adkins confers. “I’ve always looked at it as a blessing,” he says in an exclusive interview with TALL.

After exploding on the scene in 1996 with his platinum-selling Dreamin’ 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 (he’s 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 “blogging,” a tribute to Christopher “Superman” 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 “Watch Your Back,” “Teen Talk,” “Tall Things Considered,” and “Shape Up,” also offer topical advice and suggestions on all aspects of the tall lifestyle.

TALL Magazine is a bi-monthly publication devoted to the 8.8 million men 6’2” and over, and the 5.6 million women 5’9” and over that represent the growing “tall community.” Covering an array of topics, each issue includes profiles on celebrities, sports stars, and everyday people, current topical news stories, reader-contributed articles, regular columns on health, an increasingly popular fashion section, teen issues, and a "fun fact" section. Its online counterpart, http://www.TALLmagazine.com, provides an online resource for the tall community, complete with a personals section, chat room, discussion board, and marketplace.
