Conclusion

Pro-social Content

On "I Came Here to Live," Adkins describes a prodigal adolescence that changed with a car wreck ("I never set out lookin' for Jesus, so I guess Jesus came lookin' for me/And He found me upside down in a ditch"). The singer exalts a one-of-a-kind woman ("Ain't No Woman Like You"), apologizes for hurting someone ("Words Get in the Way") and has a list of reasons he stays away from marijuana and alcohol ("High"). On "The Stubborn One," an ailing old man gets faithful visits from his grandson who rattles off the great times they shared even though he knows his grandfather can't hear him. Sweet, but ...

Objectionable Content

Grandpa is partial to whiskey and cigarettes. Men ogle women in tight jeans, hoping to take one home ("Swing," "Honky Tonk Badonadonk"). The singer gets worked into a lather by a shapely woman on "Dangerous Man" ("You're like a drug, Baby ... You make me want to rob a bank and make love in a pile of money"). The expression "d--n it to h---" pops up on "I Wanna Feel Something." Adkins fancies himself a peaceful man, but thumps his chest and makes threats within "Fightin' Words." He's a bit too tolerant of other people's whiskey and drug use on "High."

Summary Advisory

The artist's mellifluous baritone fits his musky, country-fried persona on Dangerous Man. Even so, families may not want all of Trace Adkin's macho scratch, spit and skirt-chasing in their living rooms.
