Biography


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.

Working behind the desk apparently was not his goal as he immediately jumped to sign a deal with Capitol Records once he got the offer. He made his debut in the country music world in 1996 with a platinum-selling album "Dreamin' Out Loud". The record produced Top 5 singles in Country Songs chart including "Every Light in the House". He has since become an undeniable musical force, earning his place among the most identifiable artists of his generation.
