If only he'd vanish without a trace.

This Collection came out before a lot of his big hits. So if you enjoy his older works, this is the CD for you.

If I didn't own every CD he's ever put out, I'd be more excited about this, and in fact, since I'm partial to ballads, I prefer Coming On Strong, but if you want the chart toppers, this is the CD for you.

Strong Overview Of Country's Most Under-rated Performer
James E. Bagley | Sanatoga, PA USA | 08/04/2003
(5 out of 5 stars)

"Trace Adkins has maintained a consistent - if not smash-hit laden - presence on the country charts for the past eight years. Greatest Hits captures his twelve previous top 30 hits (the omitted "I'm Gonna Love You Anyway" stalled just outside it) as well as two new tracks.Adkins' bodacious baritone adds hypnotic intensity to gutwrenching ballads like "I'm Tryin'" and "Help Me Understand" while he exudes charisma on the toe-tappers, be they snarling ("This Ain't No Thinking Thing") or fun ("Big Time," "Chrome"). Midtempo tunes such as "There's A Girl In Texas" and "Every Light In The House" are his least distinctive vocally, but they also entertain.The new tracks find Adkins tackling fresh themes. The dramatic ode - and current hit - "Then They Do" takes a wistful look at watching one's kids grow up. Meanwhile, "Welcome To Hell" is a sarcastic stomper detailing the devil greeting his latest, sinful arrival. A thoroughly downbeat recording, it wouldn't stand much chance at country radio (and Adkins doesn't plan to release it as a single), but it does showcase Adkins' versatility as a songwriter. This set is a good representation of an underappreciated artist's best work. For those who haven't purchased Adkins' music before, it is a great starting point."
The greatest hits from the greatest voice!

"I had the luck of seeing Trace Adkins perform on July 3 of this year. It was an amazing concert, and I realized how truly alive his songs come during his live shows.If you want a little taste of that, then buy this CD. "Greatest Hits Collection , Volume 1" is the very CD Adkins fans have been waiting for. Here, at last, we can listen to the best of country music's greatest singer.It's amazing how Adkins can vary his styles. One moment, he's rockin' out with "Chrome", "Big Time," and "More," and the next he's belting out traditional tunes like "The Rest of Mine" nd "Every Light in the House Is On" (which is my personal favorite of his).I won't go through the songs one by one; you probably know at least some of them. After all, these babies have been playing on radio for years, garnering fans galore. Instead, I will hit the two new tracks:"Then They Do" is an emotional number about a parent and his kids. A crowd-pleaser live, it also brings a tear to your eye listening to it on your radio. The other new track is my newest Trace Adkins favorite: "Welcome to Hell." Adkins lends his voice as the devil, welcoming in a new "houseguest." Darkly humorous and ironic, this song left no doubt in my mind that the Devil, if he has a voice, has a baritone just like Trace Adkins'.Trace Adkins is a terrific singer, and not too bad a songwriter, either ("Welcome to Hell", "The Rest of Mine," "There's a Girl in Texas"). This guy is obviously one of the most talented men in Nashville today, one of the reasons he's soon to be the newest member of the Grand Ol' Obpry. Two thumbs up for Trace Adkins and his first (but not last) GREATEST HITS CD!"
