Nashville star Trace Adkins returns with his 10th album in a dozen years, a no-nonsense collection of traditional-style country tunes with subtle rock and R&B influences. The gospel-tinged first single, "Muddy Water," and the old-fashioned country tearjerker "Sometimes A Man Takes A Drink" are particular highlights, as are the funky, R&B-flavored "Better Than I Thought I'd Be" and the sly "Marry For Money" and "Hillbilly Rich." Adkins adds to the patriotic tradition of country music with the heartfelt "Till The Last Shot's Fired," which also features the West Point Cadet Choir. Well into his second decade as a hitmaker, X shows Trace Adkins maintaining his signature sound without falling into the danger of retreads or self-imitation.
