THE WAY I WANNA GO, is full of adventurous new tunes and as Adkins keeps one foot rooted in tradition – and the other on his own unique path.
“I don’t know where my place is gonna be when the history of what I did is written,” Adkins says of his 25-year legacy. “But 90 percent of the time, I said what I wanted to say and stuck to my guns and did what I wanted to do … And, this album is as good as anything I’ve ever done.”
Produced by Mickey Jack Cones and Derek George and featuring 25 songs to celebrate the silver anniversary, THE WAY I WANNA GO touches on all the aspects of Adkins’ storied career – from deeply profound ballads to clever-Country party anthems, all steeped in the diverse sound of his Louisiana upbringing.
All-star collaborators include Blake Shelton, Luke Bryan and Pitbull, Melissa Etheridge, Keb’ Mo’ and Stevie Wonder on harmonica, and Snoop Dogg, complementing Adkin’s signature smooth baritone.
“I am at the top of my game right now as far as my craft goes,” the Country star says. “I’m better at this than I’ve ever been in my life.”
