With 11 million albums sold, Trace Adkins is one of the top names in country music and he will bring his signature baritone voice to the Dodge City Days Concert Saturday, July 27 at 7:30 p.m. at United Wireless Arena.

With a career that spans two decades, Adkins still has the itch to get out and play.

"It’s an adrenaline rush and I love it," says Adkins, who is back in the studio working on a new project via, BBR Music Group/Wheelhouse Records. "There’s nothing else like that.

"That is still my favorite thing to do in this business. Go into the studio with just some lyrics and a melody and then let the finest musicians in the world help take it and turn it into something magical. It liberates me. I just dig it!

"Over the years people have asked me ‘How could we get to know you?’ "Well, if you really wanted to know who Trace Adkins is go back and listen to the album cuts on the records I’ve done over my career.

"Those are the songs that reflect where I was in my head at the time I made that record."

This will mark the second year in a row that the Dodge City Days Concert will be played at United Wireless Arena.

Last year's concert saw Justin Moore take the stage with great success according to UWA executive director Chris Ragland.

Adkins is a multi-award winning artist with more than 200 million plays on YouTube along with movie and TV appearances with classic songs "You’re Gonna Miss This" or "Every Light in the House" and the smash hit "Honky Tonk Badonkadonk."

Tickets will go on sale this Friday, Jan. 25 at 10 a.m. at ticketmaster.com or at the UWA box office.

Tickets range from $41, $45 and $65.
