Trace Adkins isn’t apologizing for his latest single but he is blaming the songwriters for letting him believe it could be a hit. The song 'Brown Chicken Brown Cow,' from his latest CD, 'Cowboy's Back in Town,' is actually the punch line to a sexual joke from the 70’s. Trace says he won’t apologize to "the purists and the traditionalists” who think “I'm such an embarrassment to this genre," he tells CMT. "I do what I want to do."
In addition to appearing in his new video on the small screen, Trace is also getting ready to appear on the silver screen in a new movie, 'The Lincoln Lawyer,' as part of an all-star cast including Matthew McConaughey, Marisa Tomei, Ryan Phillippe and William H. Macy. 'The Lincoln Lawyer' hits theaters March 18. Watch a clip from the film here.
