TRACE ADKINS' FIGHTING SPIRIT

Taking the advice of the President, Trace Adkins decided to try to get back into a normal lifestyle and went ahead with his scheduled concert dates in Texas last weekend.

Adkins feels that it is his job to try and take the audience's mind of the events of last week, if even for a couple of hours.

But, at the end of the show, he blew off some steam. "When I came back out for an encore I just, I couldn't help it," said Adkins. "I just said, 'Look, I've been holding back all night,' and I was in Texas, so I said, 'You folks all be proud of that Texas man up there in the White House.' And boy they just went nuts."

He then launched into the Merle Haggard number, "Fightin' Side of Me," telling the crowd, "I thought about coming out tonight and doing some kind of patriotic number, but you know, that's all good -- but my patriotism is manifested in just wanting to kick somebody's ass."

"It was a wild night, it really was," said Adkins. "It was good for my soul. It helped me a little bit, too."
