“Redneck Crazy” hitmaker Tyler Farr is one of the tunesmiths behind Trace Adkins new single, “Jesus and Jones.” Even though Trace didn’t have a hand in writing his first release for Wheelhouse Records, he says it definitely borrows a page from his life.
“This is a song that’s autobiographical. The first thing I ever did behind a microphone was singing bass in a gospel quartet. At the same time, I was playing guitar and singing in honky tonks, so that’s when the struggle began — the wrestling match between Jesus and Jones — and I still struggle with that,” he reveals.
You’ll be able to download the first single from Trace’s forthcoming album on Friday, with the full project due later this year.
