Like Dr. Suess, Trace Adkins Is A Cat In A Hat

NASHVILLE, Tenn. (Wireless Flash - FlashNews) – Trace Adkins’ new album may be called Dangerous Man but you should really be calling the country singer Dr. Seuss.

According to Adkins, he’s more likely to get kids coming up to him to recite lines from his hit song “Honky Tonk Badonkadonk” than babes with big booties – and that’s OK by him.

Says Adkins: “It must be the internal rhymes like Dr. Seuss or something – kids really pick up on that.”

He says it’s cute, but admits moms and grandmas aren’t as thrilled with their kids singing lyrics like slap your grandma although he points out that youngsters “don’t know what it means.”

Kids aren’t Adkins' only fans, he says ever since he started using the word “Badonkadonk,” he’s had rappers like Queen Latifah and Juvenile tell them how much they dig his music.

Despite the praise from the hip hop community, Adkins says he has no plans to do a duet with a rapper a la Tim McGraw and Nelly because he says “it’s really not my thing.”
