There’s nothing like the sweet bond between a father and daughter, and fans at Virginia’s Danville Harvest Jubilee recently shared in a special moment when Trace Adkins performed his hit, “Just Fishin,’” for his youngest daughter, Trinity.

Trace recorded the tender number about a father/daughter fishing excursion for his 2011 album, “Proud To Be Here,” and it went on to be nominated for a Grammy Award for Best Country Song.

In the song, his young daughter thinks they are just fishing, but her dad knows they are really making memories they’ll never forget. The song struck a strong chord with country fans, and peaked at No. 6 on the Billboard Hot Country Songs chart in 2011.

When she was just six years old, Trinity appeared with her father in the video, which was shot on Trace’s Tennessee farm.

“I don’t know if you recognize that song or not, or if you’ve ever seen the video, but the star of that video is here tonight,” Trace said as he coaxed Trinity to center stage, where he kissed her on top of the head and proudly said, “That’s my baby girl. This song is about her.”

Trinity, the youngest of Trace’s five daughters, returned to her seat as Trace began singing: “I’m lost in her there holdin’ that pink rod and reel / She’s doin’ almost everything but sittin’ still / Talkin’ ’bout her ballet shoes and training wheels / And her kittens / And she thinks we’re just fishin.’”

As the camera pans to Trinity’s big smile, it’s obvious another great memory has just been made.
