Trace Adkins has been pretty hard on his body over the years, surviving gunshot wounds and many broken bones. He even had to have a pinky finger reattached after severing it trying to open a tin can with a knife.
Trace turned 50 in January, and he tells Cowboys & Indians, “I don’t think I was ever worried about not making it [to 50], but I might have been concerned about what shape I’d be in when I got here.”
Now Trace is facing the possible replacement of his right kneecap. He injured it twice playing college football and recently had reconstructive surgery on it following a skiing accident.
He says, “It’s been a recurring thing — my right knee is completely trashed. This is probably the last surgery that’s going to give me any relief. I’m probably looking at a replacement at some point.”
Fans can rest assured Trace will be in top form when he launches his Songs and Stories tour Mach 8 in Des Moines, IA.
