Country music superstar Trace Adkins isnt exactly known for holding back whats on his mind. And if the millions of albums hes sold are any indication, when Trace talks, people listen. Now, in A Personal Stand, Trace Adkins delivers his maverick manifesto on politics, personal responsibility, fame, parenting, being true to yourself, hard work, and the way things oughta be.

In his inimitable pull-no-punches style, Trace gives us the state of the union as he sees it, from the lessons of his boyhood in small-town Louisiana to what hes learned headlining concerts around the world. Trace has worked oil rigs in the Gulf of Mexico, been shot in the heart, been inducted into the Grand Ole Opry, and braved perhaps the greatest challenge of all: being the father of five daughters. And shaped by these experiences, hes sounding off.

Im incredibly frustrated with the state of American politics. If there were a viable third party, Id seriously consider joining it.
If anybody wonders who the good guys are and who the bad guys are in this world, just look at the way we teach our children as opposed to the way the fundamentalist Muslims teach their children.
Organized labor now exists for the sake of organized labor, and not for the workers it once protected.
I believe the easiest way to solve the illegal immigration enforcement problem is to go after the employers who hire illegal aliens.
As a society, were unwilling to sacrifice our luxuries and our conveniences in order to conserve. We wont change until were forced to.
The war on terror is like herpes. People can live with it, but itll flare up from time to time.

Brash, ballsy, persuasive, and controversial, A Personal Stand isnt just the story of Trace Adkinss life; its the story of what life can teach all of us.
