HOPE – Country Music Superstar Trace Adkins will perform at Hempstead Hall on May 6 at 7 p.m.

Tickets are available at $25 and $40, with a special “meet and greet” package for $225. Tickets may be purchased online at or by calling 870-722-8565.   Hempstead Hall is located on the campus of the University of Arkansas at Hope, 2500 South Main Street in Hope.

“We are so fortunate to have been selected for the Trace Adkins Tour,” said Dolly Henley, director of Hempstead Hall. “Trace has fans throughout Arkansas, Louisiana, Texas and Oklahoma; and we have sold tickets in all four states. It will be an awesome concert,” she continued.     “Trace will see some of his hometown fans from Sarepta, Louisiana, at the show.”

Adkins’ trademark baritone voice has powered countless hits to the top of the charts including Honky Tonk Badonkadonk, Arlington, I’m Trying, Ladies Love Country Boys, Then They Do, Songs About Me, Just Fishin, This Ain’t No Thinkin Thing, and Jesus and Jones. The three-time Grammy-nominated member of the Grand Ole Opry is a TV personality, actor, author, and spokesman for the Wounded Warrior Project and the American Red Cross, for whom he raised over $1.5 million dollars as winner of NBC’s All-Star Celebrity Apprentice.
In recent years, Adkins has performed for our service men and women in 11 USO Tours, with his 12th scheduled this spring. In his 2007 autobiography, A Personal Stand: Observations and Opinions from a Freethinking Roughneck, he recounted his rise to fame, brushes with death, and battles with personal demons. Trace has played a tough-as-nails biker in The Lincoln Lawyer (starring Matthew McConaughey), a desperate father in Deepwater Horizon (starring Mark Wahlberg) and a wise oracle of a tattoo artist in the family-friendly film Moms’ Night Out (starring Patricia Heaton, Sean Astin, and Sarah Drew).

Adkins is on a 30-stop tour promoting his 12th album, Something’s Going On.   With more than 11 million in album sales, 34 singles ,three Grammy nominations, and dozens of major motion pictures and television credits to his name, Adkins always has something going on. It is that constant motion and creative diversity that has fueled his new album, released in March, aptly titled Something’s Going On.

“When I first heard ‘Watered Down’, (the third song on Something’s Going On) I felt an immediate connection with what I wanted to say. A man comes to a point in his life where he begins to reflect on his past and what he’s learned and that’s what fueled this song,” said Adkins. “If you’ve led the kind of life I’ve led, at some point you have to temper your vices.”
It’s been four years since Adkins’ last studio album Love Will… wasreleased in 2013 and made its debut in the top ten on Billboard’s Top Country Albums chart; and fans have eagerly awaited this follow-up ever since. Some of Nashville’s favorite and most respected songwriters contributed to the range and inspiration of Something’s Going On, boasting credits such as Tyler Farr, Craig Campbell and Shane McAnally to name a few. Something’s Going On was produced by Mickey Jack Cones.
