"Honky Tonk Badonkadonk" is a song recorded by American country music artist Trace Adkins. It was released in October 2005 as the third and final single from his album Songs About Me. The song was a crossover hit for Adkins, peaking at #2 on the U.S. Hot Country Songs chart and reaching the top 40 on both the U.S. Billboard Hot 100 and Pop 100 charts, making it his first top 40 hit on both charts. It was also certified gold for more than 500,000 musical downloads. Its ringtone also received more than 75,000 downloads.
According to Jamey Johnson, who co-wrote the song with Dallas Davidson and Randy Houser, the idea for "Honky Tonk Badonkadonk" came when Johnson, Davidson, and Houser were watching a young woman dancing at a club. Houser came up with the title "honky tonk badonkadonk," in reference to the slang term "badonkadonk," which references shapely buttocks. Within an hour, the three had written the song.
"Honky Tonk Badonkadonk" entered the Hot Country Songs chart in early 2005 at #58 based on unsolicited airplay. The song was officially released later in that same year and debuted at #56 on the U.S. Billboard Hot Country Songs chart for the week of October 1, 2005. It peaked at #2 on the Hot Country Songs chart in early 2006, behind "Jesus, Take The Wheel" by Carrie Underwood.
