“I can’t even begin to explain what a difference she’s made in my life,” Adkins said.

Obviously, both Trace Adkins and Blake Shelton are country music icons. But, did you know they are also close friends? It all started when the two collaborated for the number one hit song, “Hillbilly Bone.” The two even won an ACM Award for Vocal Event of the Year. However, the song wasn’t just a big career hit for the duo, it also sparked a long-lasting bromance between the two artists. Adkins and Shelton teamed up again in 2019 to release the song, “Hell Right”.
During an interview in 2019, Shelton shared what he admired about Trace Adkins.
“He’s got that low, deep, big voice, and he’s so great at the ad-lib stuff. And he just brings a certain quality to any recording that nobody else can touch,” said Shelton. “I mean, the guy’s got so much personality in his voice and the way he sings, and I still think that he’s one of the most underrated country artists out there.”
The two have also toured and performed together. Blake Shelton even brought Adkins to the set of “The Voice” to act as his Battle Rounds advisor in 2018. And if that wasn’t enough, Trace Adkins was also the man to bestow the highest honor a country artist can receive to Shelton. In 2010, Adkins was the guy who invited Shelton to join the Grand Ole Opry.
