Grand Ole Opry Member Spotlight: Trace Adkins

Book by Phone:
Book Online:

Unarguably the Grand Ole Opry's tallest member, Trace Adkins became an official member of the Grand Ole Opry and can frequently be found on its stage singing his long string of hits.

At 6'6" tall, the Louisiana-born artist maintains a commanding stage presence as he delivers his own style of country that often bridges the gap between genres - although they still always remain his "Songs About Me."

Background and Early Career

  • Born on January 13, 1962, Trace learned to play guitar early on and continued to play throughout his young adult hood as he worked the honky tonk scene before his career took off.
  • Before his country music career began to flourish, Trace worked as an oil driller and had aspirations to become a professional football player. He moved to Nashville in the early 1990s, and was signed to Capitol Records for his 1996 debut album, Dreaming Out Loud.

Grand Ole Opry Induction

  • When it came time for his induction into the Grand Ole Opry, the Opry's shortest member - 4'11" Little Jimmy Dickens - took the honor of officially welcoming Trace to the Grand Ole Opry family as he stood on a step-ladder to look the new member in the eye.

Grand Ole Opry Country Music Show - Nashville
Great show, great seats! Was kinda cool to be part of live radio broadcast. The only comment i would have is to plan how you're getting there from hotel. We took bus from town (very cheap), but bus let us off at mall. We didn't know where grand ol opry was located from there so we panicked a little til we found out it was just on other side of mall. There are some nice restaurants in mall so plan on getting there soon enough to enjoy dinner before the show. We also took backstage tour immediately after show & well worth it. Came out through gift shop, was shuttled to where taxis were parked and was back at hotel in town in no time. Cab was reasonable, too.

Grand Ole Opry Country Music Show - Nashville
The ticket price was great the seat was only seven rows back albeit a little too far to one side for my liking. Nonetheless, it was still a good seat and the show was excellent. Vacations made easy lived up to its name. We simply traded in our print-out tickets for official ones at the ticket office and walked right in and took our seats. It was easy. Thank you. I will definitely recommend vme to anyone who would listen.
