Grammy nominee Trace Adkins set to close Sounds of Summer


Quakertown Borough presents the third annual Sounds of Summer Concert Series presented by Sands Auto Group.

The concert series will consist of six concerts throughout the summer. Country star and veterans’ advocate Trace Adkins will close out the series Friday, Aug. 30, at the Univest Performance Center.

Tickets are available at Both reserved seating and general admission tickets are available online but are expected to sell out very quickly.

Tickets are $39 each for general admission (lawn), and reserved seats range from $69 to $99 depending on the seat location. Gates open at 5:30 p.m. for all shows.

Trace Adkins’ opening act is up and coming country artist Kendal Conrad, who will take the stage at 7 p.m. Trace Adkins will take the stage at approximately 8 p.m.

A three-time Grammy-nominated member of the Grand Ole Opry, Trace Adkins’ trademark baritone has powered countless hits to the top of the charts.

In recent years, Adkins has performed for our service men and women across 12 USO Tours. Adkins’ film credits include “The Lincoln Lawyer,” “Deepwater Horizon” and “Moms’ Night Out.”
