Trace Adkins

Every Light in the House

Composed by Kent Robbins

Song Review by

“Every Light In the House Is On” is a creative approach to the age-old good-bye I miss you song. The song is even more poignant when you consider the size of the singer, Trace Adkins; the gentle giant communicates pain so well with his deep baritone. Some of the song’s similies (i.e. “the back yard’s bright as the crack of dawn”) are a bit forced, but overall the song and singer deserve accolades for a decent performance.
