TRACE ADKINS TO HOST EARLY NASHVILLE SCREENING OF THE LINCOLN LAWYER

(Nashville, TN – March 2, 2011) – Country Star Trace Adkins knows a thing or two about wearing multiple hats. The singer, author and television personality is relishing the success of his latest single, “Brown Chicken Brown Cow,” while prepping for upcoming tour dates AND planning a trip to Hollywood next week to promote the Lionsgate / Lakeshore Entertainment movie, The Lincoln Lawyer, starring Matthew McConaughey (in theaters nationwide on March 18).

First though, he’ll host an early Nashville screening for fans on Monday, March 7th at the Belcourt Theatre. Radio winners will attend, along with fans ticketed through Adkin’s own social sites; Facebook.com/TraceAdkins and Twitter.com/TraceAdkins.

Once in Los Angeles, he’ll visit The Late Late Show with Craig Ferguson on Wednesday March 9th. He’ll bring along the barnyard crew from his hilarious “Brown Chicken Brown Cow” video (puppet alert!) for the performance and he’ll also chat with Craig about his experience filming The Lincoln Lawyer. On March 10th, Trace will attend the official movie premiere.

Featuring a farm’s worth of crazy critters, the video for “Brown Chicken Brown Cow” has become quite the viral sensation – those familiar with Trace’s technical “capabilities” get the irony…

Currently, the video is:

  • The #1 Country video on iTunes
  • Approaching half a million streams online
  • In CMT.com’s Top Five since its debut two weeks ago
  • Airing on CMT in Heavy Rotation and on GAC in Power Rotation

“Brown Chicken Brown Cow” is the second single from Trace Adkins’ latest album, Cowboy’s Back In Town (Show Dog – Universal).

 ABOUT THE LINCOLN LAWYER - In the gripping thriller “The Lincoln Lawyer,” Matthew McConaughey stars as Michael “Mick” Haller, a slick Los Angeles criminal defense attorney who operates out of the back of his Lincoln Continental sedan. Having spent most of his career defending petty, gutter-variety criminals, Mick unexpectedly lands the case of a lifetime: defending a rich Beverly Hills playboy (Ryan Phillippe) who is accused of attempted murder. However, what initially appears to be a straightforward case with a big money pay-off swiftly develops into a deadly match between two masters of manipulation and a crisis of conscience for Haller. Directed by Brad Furman from a screenplay by John Romano, based on the novel by Michael Connelly, the cast also includes Marisa Tomei, Josh Lucas, John Leguizamo, Frances Fisher, Bob Gunton, Laurence Mason, with Bryan Cranston and William H. Macy.

Trace Adkins rounds out the cast as a supporting player named Eddie Vogel, the leader of a motorcycle gang who also happens to be one of Mick’s clients. “With just a few scenes, Trace did a fantastic job in making this Harley gang leader an appealing character,” says producer Tom Rosenberg. “He and Matthew had a great rapport onscreen.”
