Touring in support of his brand new album Proud to Be Here, Adkins made his return to “Trump’s joint,” a memorable one. Not only did he get the ladies hot and bothered with his sensual side, he also delivered his usual topnotch honky tonk, the occasional love song, even if “This Ain’t No Love Song,” some kickass country rock and amusing commentary between songs.
He opened his set in rousing fashion with “Whoop a Man’s Ass,” followed by his hit with Blake Shelton, “Hillbilly Bone” and his tribute to baseball and chasing tail, “Swing.”
