Trace Adkins as a Euro-funk hero? Maybe. Honky Tonk Badonkadonk is a European compilation built around various mixes of the hit song and video. While the Euro-funk mix of the tune is a stilted house version that falls short in a big way, the other two mixes on the actual CD (the radio mix is included as a CD-R bonus cut) include a "country club mix" which also sucks, and a '70s groove entry as well, which works the best of the three, but the original blows then all away. Other tracks include the title cut from Songs About Me, the album the aforementioned hit came from; "Hot Mama," and "Rough & Ready" from Comin' on Strong; the title cuts from Chrome and More, and a small handful of others taken from various places in Adkins recording career. For a neo-traditionalist country singer, Adkins certainly gets around. For hardcore fans only.
