I agree with a lot of what he thinks. Some of his thinking I don't agree with. If you want to know what my ideas are, simply message me the question. Worth a read.

Meet country-music singer (and self-proclaimed "freethinking roughneck"), Trace Adkins.

Trace is here (with this book of his) to tell all the rest of us "the way things ought to be" - So, you better listen up!

And, let me tell ya - Trace (as you'll soon find out) is such an adorable, little sweetheart that (get this!) - His second wife, Barbara (in order to show her loving affection towards her man) actually took a gun and shot Trace in the chest (at close range, no less).

My-oh-my! - Now, isn't that just too romantic for words?

Yes. Trace Adkins may be a lousy, fall-down drunk (on most occasions) - But, when he finally does mange to pick himself up from the floor - You can be sure that he's your typical hypocrite who's forever attesting to god about things.

Trace claims that, literally, "everyone" told him that he should write this book (and, with that, share his totally narrow-minded viewpoints with the rest of the world) - Well, of course, "everyone" would be telling Trace to publish this book - After all, he was the one who was buying the beers.
