The concert is part of the ongoing Songsand Stories tour, a series of intimate U.S. theater dates where Adkins performs stripped down versions and explains the inspiration and emotion behind fan favorites and newer hits alike, from “Just Fishin’” and “You’re Gonna Miss This” to “Songs About Me” and “(This Ain’t) No Thinkin’ Thing.” Cle Elum, WA
In the fifteen years since his platinum debut album Dreamin’ Out Loud, Adkins has released ten studio albums, three greatest hits packages, and thirty chart singles, and received five ACM and CMT awards. His latest release, 2011’s Proud To Be Here, displays once again his ability to pour emotional truth into his music — whether of the tender or rowdy variety. The album celebrates committed love in songs like “MillionDollar View,” “That’s What You Get,” and “Always Gonna Be That Way”; the joys of the simple life in “Days Like This” and “Poor Folks”; the lighter side of things in “It’s A Woman Thang” and “Love Buzz”; and life’s highest priorities in “It’s Who You Know.” In addition to his success as a country music artist, Adkins has appeared in television and movies, and is also the author of A Personal Stand: Observations and Opinions from a Freethinking Roughneck.
The Swiftwater Cellars Concert series is located at the unique Swiftwater Cellars, a destination winery in the
Cascade foothills just 90 miles east of Seattle.
