Trace Adkins talks badonkas

Country singer Trace Adkins may be hosting the “Cracker Barrel Songs of the Year’’ later this month on GAC, but he says he has no illusions about his hit song ever making that illustrious list.

Adkins, who looked as country cool as it gets in his black cowboy hat and tight-fittin’ jeans, popped up in Pasadena today to talk to critics about the special, but they were more interested in how the kicky tune “Honky Tonk Badonkadonk’’ was created.

Seems Adkins was hanging out at the famous Wildhorse Saloon in Nashville with his songwriter pals Randy Houser, Dallas Davidson and Jamey Johnson when they spied a woman with a bodacious booty on the dance floor.

“There was this girl on the dance floor with a big behind and she was knocking people around and they were laughing,” Adkins says.

One of the friends started talking about the woman’s “badonka.’’ Pretty soon, it was a badonkadonk.

“Once you added the Honky Tonk, you had a song,’’ Adkins says. “It was written very quickly.’’

“It’s never going to be a song of the year, but it was a lot of fun,’’ Adkins says.

The O.C. is O-Ver

Cue the crashing wave.

Fox just shot out a press release today saying that “The O.C.” has been canceled. The Feb. 22 season finale will be the series finale.

Which is too bad, because the series was spanking good this season. The series suffered from low ratings – what a shock after Fox put it up against powerhouse series “Grey’s Anatomy” and “CSI” and the NBC comedy block.

“This feels like the best time to close,” creator Josh Schwartz said in a press statement. “We have enjoyed our best season yet and what better time to go out?”

Josh e-mailed to say he’s doing “Gossip Girl” for the CW and a spy dramedy for NBC.

“Gossip Girl” is based on the book series by Cecily von Ziegesar about socialite teenagers engaging in sex, drugs and, of course, gossip, on New York’s Upper East Side.

“Gilmore Girls” creator and former executive producer is set to write the pilot and Lindsay Lohan is attached to the project, as they like to say in Hollywood.

As for Josh’s foray into “Alias” territory, just don’t go all Rambaldi on us, OK?
