Notes

Description
Country music star Adkins isn't known for holding back what's on his mind. And if his album sales are any indication, when Trace talks, people listen. Here, he delivers his maverick manifesto on politics, personal responsibility, fame, parenting, being true to yourself, hard work, and the way things ought to be.--From publisher description.
Description
The country music superstar combines personal reminiscences with reflections on the issues dividing modern American society, using an episode during which his wife shot him to illuminate the importance of accepting personal responsibility and forgiving others.
