With regards to the voice type, with my knowledge of voice I know for a fact it is an incorrect classification.
I don't trust the validity of those quores of articles stating him to be a baritone.
1. His timbre is way too low to be a baritone, in fact it is closer to a true bass's timbre and tessitura.
2. Also, I know from experience that people who don't understand voice-types will improperly call low male voices basses or baritones without knowing the difference.
3. Furthermore, here's some articles that states him as being a bass: http://findarticles.com/p/articles/mi_qn4176/is_/ai_n16164728, http://traceadkins.com/news.php?p=291&more=1&c=1&tb=1&pb=1#more291, http://blogs.usatoday.com/listenup/2008/07/index.html, and http://www.cmt.com/news/country-music/1591611/trace-adkins-returns-to-corporate-environment-at-virginia-concert.jhtml. —Preceding unsigned comment added by Bailaowai (talk • contribs) 22:41, 2 October 2008 (UTC)
Rough & Ready
I've heard both versions of Rough & Ready. I don't have the album -- believe it or not, I heard the PG-13 version on the radio once. The changes are as follows: "What are you lookin' at pretty boy smirk" becomes "...@$$hole smirk" or something similar, while "It don't fit, it makes me itch" becomes "It's a b***h, it makes me itch". Just in case anyone wanted to know. Maybe later versions of the album featured the "cleaner" version instead? Ten Pound Hammer • (((Broken clamshells • Otter chirps))) 13:14, 28 July 2007 (UTC)
- I got the album very soon after it came out and it had the "clean" version. The profane version may have been specially recorded later on, but I doubt it was the original version. If anything I think it's just a version he sings at live shows, doing some cursory internet research. Overall this, to me, is similar to the "Friends in Low Places" alternate verse. Garth Brooks didn't rerecord the song for radio; the radio version was always on recording, and the "profane" lyrics are just there for the enjoyment of his fans at his shows.

- Considering things further, I've solved my own misconception. I bought the album at Wal*Mart, so that probably explains a lot.Spell4yr 00:50, 10 August 2007 (UTC)

March 2011 – Wives clarification
In the "Early life" section (before edit), one would get the impression that Trace was only married twice, which became problematic when reading further down in "Injuries" section. That left the impression that Rhonda (current wife) was the "second wife" who shot him, when it was actually Julie he was married to at the time.
