American Man: Greatest Hits Volume II is the ninth studio album, and the second compilation album released by country singer Trace Adkins. It was released on December 4, 2007. Adkins was originally scheduled to release a new studio album on that day but said in a press release: "We were already under some extremely tight deadlines as it was to make the street week," said Adkins. "I just was not able to get it all done because, to be honest, a pressing career opportunity came my way that I really wanted to take advantage of. As a result, I simply ran out of time."
The album features three new songs, including the lead single "I Got My Game On", which was later utilized as the theme song to Howie Long's Tough Guys show during the FOX Super Bowl XLII pre-game show. "You're Gonna Miss This" was the album's second single. As the fastest-climbing single of his career, it was also his longest-lasting Number One, spending three weeks at that position on the Billboard country charts, in addition to reaching the Top 20 both on the Billboard Hot 100 and Pop 100 charts.
The album debuted at number 22 on the U.S. Billboard 200 chart, selling about 53,000 copies in its first week.
