I Came Here To Live
Knoxville, Tenn. (PRWEB) March 6, 2009
Country fans are in for an all-American treat only on GACTV.com with ACM award-nominated musician Trace Adkins. Users can enjoy eight performance clips from "X (Ten) Days," his ten-day tour of various military bases in Iraq and Afghanistan. (http://www.gactv.com/gac/ar_az_trace_adkins)
With 53,000 pounds of equipment and 30 crew members, Adkins gave a fully loaded experience to more than 10,000 Unites States military personnel in partnership with the USO. The online performance videos include behind-the-scenes footage of his numerous adventures abroad such as riding in a Black Hawk helicopter, waiting out a sandstorm, and participating in target practice.
In one clip, Adkins enjoys a heartfelt encounter with a soldier fan who has lyrics from Adkins' salute to American armed forces, "I Came Here To Live," tattooed across his arms. "It's hard to describe what that feels like as a singer," Adkins exclaimed, "To have somebody take a lyric from one of your songs and have it tattooed on their body."
Adkins also gives the inside scoop on his encounters with look-a-likes, his secrets to inner confidence, and his favorite ways to relax - if bush hogging is considered relaxing! GACTV.com users can also enjoy exclusive interviews with the singer as he discusses his music, his home, and his five daughters. (http://www.gactv.com/gac/ar_az_trace_adkins)
