Country Stars’ Real Names: Trace Adkins
Real Name: Tracy Darrell Adkins
No one is going to accuse Trace Adkins of having a woman's name, but he wasn't taking any chances with his country music career. Trace is a much more fitting nickname for the over 6-foot tall former oil rig worker. Although, one has to figure if he'd decided to stick with Tracy, few would have had the gall to tease him.
