If Trace Had To Pick Just One Song . . .

Crowd delighted, assaulted at TV taping.

Anything can happen at a TV taping, even a fan getting pounded in the head by a boom microphone.

And yes, that happened last night (July 27) at the Trace Adkins’ taping for CMT: Invitation Only.

“Dude!” Trace yelled at the mic operator who accidentally dropped the mic. The fan was OK, and Trace later went up to her and kissed her on the head where she got hit, sparking “Awwww”s and light applause from the crowd.

Asked what one song he’d like to be remembered for, Trace hesitated. “They’re all me,” he told the crowd. “I don’t record any that I can’t sing with conviction and passion.”

Pressed, Trace finally picked “Honky Tonk Badonkadonk.”

“So I wouldn’t be taken too seriously,” he said. “It’s a love song anyway.”

Trace's new album, Proud to Be Here, is in stores Tuesday.
