Keep Promoting Arlington sign now

Do to critism by a minority of Americans Trace Adkins and Capitol Records have decided to NOT promote the song Arlington. For the Majority of us that would like to continue supporting and requesting the song please sign this petition.

Letter from Trace (which you can find on his website:

It has come to my attention that a portion of radio listeners are uncomfortable with my single "Arlington". While the number of people may be relatively small, and limited to only a few areas of the country, I feel that I should address this to each of you, who have supported this song with so much enthusiasm.

This is a very special song to me, and I never intended for it to be unsettling to anyone. Recording it was my own way of paying homage and tribute - in a very respectful and very deep emotional way - to all American war veterans who have given that last full measure for our freedom. I have received an overwhelming amount of response from so many people expressing their appreciation for the son and the patriotic feelings it evokes. However, I can completely understand how this song might make some people who have family members on active duty or deployed in combat zones feel apprehensive. This is a regrettable and totally unintended consequence, which I am taking very seriously. Therefore, it is out of respect for these Americans and their families that we have decided not to continue actively promoting "Arlington"and will soon move onto our next single.

Thank you radio for making this the fastest rising single of my career. Your continuing support of me and my music means the world to me.

God bless you.


Trace Adkins
