Trace Adkins was born on January 13, 1962. He learned to play guitar from his father and joined gospel music group while in high school. He later studied in Louisiana Tech University, joined football team and worked at an oil rig after finishing his study. His life seemed not to have connection with music, but he continued playing guitar in his spare time. When he lost his pinky finger on his left hand in an accident while using a knife to open a bucket, he asked doctors to reattach the finger at an angle so that he could continue to play guitar.
