Watch Trace Adkins Get Flirty With Actress Ruby Rose on “Today” Show

If this country music thing doesn’t work out for Trace Adkins, he can always fall back on his entertainment reporter skills. The 6’6″ country star sat in as a co-host on Today’s Take with Al Roker and Shanielle Jones Wednesday morning (Feb. 8).

Trace—who just released a new single, “Watered Down,” from his upcoming 12th studio album, Something’s Going On—was on hand to interview Australian actress Ruby Rose, who will be returning to her role on the Netflix series, Orange is The New Black and starring in the upcoming movies John Wick: Chapter 2 and Pitch Perfect 3.

As Trace was seated at the anchor desk, he became enamored with the actresses name, saying he had to write a song called Ruby Rose. The Aussie actress was equally taken by Trace’s manly voice.

“You’re voice is so sexy. Could you say my name again,” she asked the country singer. Trace happily obliged saying in his baritone voice, “I’m sorry, Ruby is not available right now.”  Perhaps Trace could also have a future in voice over work as well—the possibilities are endless.

Watch Trace win over Ruby Rose with his voice.

Michael Ray Honors His Grandma Penny with a Tattoo

Michael Ray Honors His Grandma Penny with a Tattoo

When you’re getting a permanent addition to you body, you want to make sure it means something, right?

Michael Ray has several tattoos, but each one has a personal connection to his life, “All my tattoos are either family based, religious based, or music based.”

He shares the story of one of his tattoos that honors his late grandmother, “So, my grandma, Penny, she passed away a couple of years ago, and I have a tattoo memory of my grandfather, and I wanted a tattoo for her. Her nickname was Penny, and I got a penny with my Grandmother’s birth year, 1942, on the date, on the inside of my arm.”

If he could change one thing about the tattoo…it would just be WHEN he got it. Turns out Michael got it on a show day, and it being on his arm, well, Michael admits “I started playing guitar that night…for the show, and it hurt like hell.”

But even with that night of pain Michael proudly says “it’s probably my favorite tattoo.”
