Comin' On Strong is the sixth album from American country music singer Trace Adkins. It was released on December 2, 2003 on Capitol Records Nashville. Although it produced only two singles — "Hot Mama" and "Rough & Ready", which respectively reached No. 5 and No. 13 on the Hot Country Songs charts — it was certified platinum by the RIAA.

The track "I'd Sure Hate to Break Down Here" was later recorded by Julie Roberts as "Break Down Here" on her self-titled debut album. Her version was released as a single in early 2004, peaking at No. 18 on the country charts.

The song "Hot Mama" appears on the game Karaoke Revolution Party.
