MULTI-PLATINUM Country star Trace Adkins enlists five-time Entertainer of the Year Luke Bryan and Pitbull in the official music video for their current single, “Where The Country Girls At,” letting loose for a clip with good times written all over it. 

Directed by David Rousseau and premiering across CMT and on Facebook, the video finds worlds colliding in unexpected style – just like the anthem itself. Featuring all the sunshine and oceanfront luxury of Miami, plus the rowdy energy of a true honkytonk heaven, three very different superstars team up with a single goal in mind: To get the party started. The brand-new music video will air with CMT across the ViacomCBS Times Square Billboard in the heart of New York City, as well as running on CMT, CMT Music, and CMT.com. Tune in tomorrow (9/30) to Entertainment Tonight for exclusive interviews with Trace Adkins and Luke Bryan with behind-the-scenes footage of the filming of the music video. 

“Luke lives right down the road…” Adkins jokes when asked why choosing Luke Bryan and Pitbull for the track. “And Pitbull we were like who could we ask who will absolutely tell us ‘no’? Pitbull. And then he said ‘yes’ and I couldn’t believe it. He’s been awesome to work with and he’s been very gracious with his time and talent and we’re just ridin’ on his coattails.” 

The clip was filmed in part at Luke Bryan’s 32 Bridge Food + Drink in downtown Music City, while Shein and Wrangler provided clothing for the trio and dancers’ looks.

Written by Monty Criswell, Derek George and Michael White, “Where The Country Girls At” is from Adkins’ newly-released 13th studio album, THE WAY I WANNA GO (Verge Records), and just a taste of what outlets like Billboard have dubbed a “creative tour de force.”  The special anniversary project is on Verge Records and distributed by global music giant ONErpm. 

The project marks 25 years since Adkins debuted with the PLATINUM-certified album, DREAMIN’ OUT LOUD, and with its release last month, features a sprawling 25-song track list to match – along with the Grand Ole Opry member’s smooth baritone vocals, signature Country charisma and bold stylistic flair.

Sampling styles and influences from across his chart-topping career, other standouts on the project include collabs with Blake Shelton, Melissa Etheridge, Keb’ Mo’, Snoop Dogg, plus Stevie Wonder on harmonica, and Adkins has previously shared tracks like “Got It Down," “Empty Chair” and “Heartbreak Song,” among others.

The Louisiana native recently finished up a highly touted stint as the featured guest on Blake Shelton’s FRIENDS & HEROES TOUR 2021 and will continue performing headline dates and more through the end of the year. Premiering in January, Adkins is also part of a new drama series on FOX called MONARCH. Stay tuned for more information.





In his 25-year career in Country music, Trace Adkins has sold over 11 MILLION albums, charted over 20 singles, earned numerous awards and GRAMMY nominations, and garnered over TWO BILLION streams. A Grand Ole Opry member for nearly two decades, the Louisiana native is known for dynamic baritone and fiery, always-memorable live performances, and has expanded his Country career to include film and TV acting. He broke out in 1996 with the debut album, DREAMIN’ OUT LOUD, cracking the Top 5 of Billboard’s Hot Country Songs chart with “Every Light In the House Is On” and following with the #1 smash, “This Ain’t (No Thinkin’ Thing).” Since then, Adkins has pioneered a mix of classic Country minded traditionalism and adventurous, good-natured showmanship, breaking open new avenues in modern Country through fun-filled hits like “Honky Tonk Badonkadonk” and “Hillbilly Bone” (with Blake Shelton). He’s celebrating the silver anniversary of his album debut in 2021 with THE WAY I WANNA GO, doing exactly what he always has – mixing pure-Country reverence with standout collaborations featuring Blake Shelton, Melissa Etheridge, Snoop Dogg, Stevie Wonder on harmonica and more. Introducing Adkins’ newest single “Where The Country Girls At” (featuring Luke Bryan and Pitbull), THE WAY I WANNA GO is available everywhere now. Adkins is also part of a new drama series on FOX called MONARCH, set to air in January 2022.
