ANOTHER PLATINUM RECORD FOR TRACE ADKINS

Last Wednesday Trace Adkins celebrated the second platinum record of his eight-year career, Comin' On Strong [the first was his 1996 self-titled debut]. Trace shared the secret to selling two million records-good songs. "People get passionate about a song," he said. "It's been my experience if you put out radio candy, something commercial, it doesn't sell records. So give me one that moves people. I'll take a No. 12 on the chart if it sells a half-million copies. I can't eat number ones, but when I hang that plaque on the wall, that's another college tuition [that's paid for]." Trace's new album, Songs About Me is set to arrive in stores March 22nd. Also, you can catch him singing his new single, "Songs About Me," on tonight's episode of the WB sketch comedy show, "Blue Collar TV," which airs at 9:30 ET/PT.
