Trace Adkins‘ bones are defintely breakable.
1.Working on an oil rig he lost the pinky finger on his left hand in an accident while using a knife to open a bucket, and asked doctors to reattach the finger at an angle so that he could continue to play guitar
2.Trace also both his arms, a leg and a handful of ribs and cut his nose off in a car crash. But the worst pain he ever felt came after his ex-wife shot him in a heated argument in 1994.
3.In 2001, Adkins was injured in a tractor accident and had to temporarily cancel touring. He later entered a 28-day alcohol rehabilitation program in Nashville
So #4 doesn't seem so bad! Trace is releasing his new album on May 14, broke his foot and shared the above photo.
The caption: “This is gross. Broke my foot the other day. Still kinda hurts.”
Still…kinda…hurts? The dude is incredible!

Something You Might Not Know About Me: I've been married to my wife Susan for over 24 years. She is a now runs her own business writing grants for non-profits in Michigan. My youngest son, Ben (19), had major brain surgery for seizures in Aug '05. He is completely recovered and is a sophomore at GVSU! My other son, Harry, is 21 wants to be a Naturalist/Vet goes to MCC.
My big life changing experience was a motorcycle accident during the Roofsit in Sept '06. It was humbling to have so many listeners praying for me during my 6 operations. I was off the air for 6 weeks and in a wheelchair for about 5-6 months. Since then I have experienced complete kidney failure and have been on dialysis for 2 years. Spring of 2010 I organized TEAM CONRAD for the National Kidney Foundation of Michigan. Our 1st Kidney Walks did over 100K-- WOW! I was blessed in Jan 2011 with a kidney transplant from listener/donor Kristin O'Leary from Grandville. I have so much to be thankful for... but especially for your thoughts & prayers.
