One of country music's great traditionalists, [mp3com-artist]Trace Adkins[/mp3com-artist] has carried the torch for old-school country during the recent times of trendy pop-country.  Mixing elements of honky-tonk, gospel, blues and rock, Adkins has stood tall with his own style, refusing to bend to whatever new fad comes along. "Million Dollar View" is a track off of his new album Proud to Be Here. An ode to his wife, it's what he calls a "get out of jail free song" - something that, when his wife is mad at him, he can point to a say "Look honey, I wrote this for you!" As any guy could appreciate, it's a pretty great idea, and it's also a great tune. On this live version of the track (who's funny intro monologue I won't spoil entirely), you get to experience Adkins in his element: up on stage performing.  You can hear him feeding off of the crowd's energy, putting real emphasis into his words - and you can tell that he believes every one of them. With his deep burly voice and no nonsense songwriting, [mp3com-artist]Trace Adkins[/mp3com-artist] is doing country music as it was always meant to be done.
