I used to be 6'6", but I think I'm shrinking a little. Hoping to live long enough to be 5'2"

That's a great quote Rob, but isn't he basically implying then that he's now shorter than 6'6? Would 6'6 peak and 6'5.5 now be unreasonable? If they were to remake Back to the Future this guy would make the perfect Biff, he really looks like one of those bad egg bully types from an old western town doesn't he?
[Editor Rob: yes, the last 3-4 years he may have shipped a 1/4 or 1/2 inch. It's believable.]

Shelton is leaning in that photo though. In others doesn't look 2 inches Click Here

@Rob, Can you add a photo and songs like "Ladies Love Country Boys", "Swing", "Honky Tonk Badonkadonk", "You're Gonna Miss This", "Just Fishin'", "Brown Chicken Brown Cow", "Marry For Money", "Every Light in the House" and "Hot Mama"? Do you think 6'5.5 might be more realistic? I think from what I've seen of him you'd be more accurate with a Calvin Harris/Gotz Otto type listing. I think 6'5.75 would be more accurate, see him with Shelton, Jilette and Rodman.
[Editor Rob: I added a quote from him which he kinda says he might shrink a little. Some height loss at 53 is possible for a guy that tall.]

@Rob, do you think 6'5.5 might be more realistic? With 6'6.5 Penn Jilette. Click Here

I'm 6'4" bare feet, saw Adkins in person once. Had to slightly tilt my head up to make eye contact. All I can say is that he's taller than me. My guess is 6'6" is legit.

He's at least 6'6.. Blake Shelton is a confirmed 6'5 and Trace almost looks a full two inches taller here.

Wade Barrett and Trace Adkins are the same height

I'm with Arch on this one. The guy may even pull of 199cm

I think just shy barefoot makes sense, but he definitely does look very close in my eyes.

By coincidence I have stood next to both men during my bodyguard duty, Rodman and Adkins Rod man is about 6'6 3/4" and Adkin a good 6'6". Since he is in his 50's he may have lost a little height. In my 20's I was a legit 6'10" now in my 50's I just make 6'9"

Trace Adkins with his cowboy boots on appears to be shorter than the 6'7" NBA listed Dennis Rodman.
If Dennis and Trace were wearing the same footwear then Dennis would probably have about 1.5" - 2" in height on Trace. So, I would think that Trace's barefoot height is somewhere between 6'5" - 6'5.5"

If you look at his shoulders/frame and chin level off hand Trace looks much taller than Shelton and easily 6 ft 6, but when you imagine where is head line would be under the hat he doesn't seem that much taller. He must have a much shorter head length than Shelton because in nearly every photo Trace's chin level is like 3 inches higher.

Here he doesn't look anything under 6 ft 6...

After seeing trace with 6'7" Rodman and 6'6.5" Penn on All Star Celeb Apprentice I feel like Trace is closer to 6'5"-6'5.5". Still a huge guy no doubt, but this seems to fit a little better.

197 cm or 6,5.5. 6,6.125 out of bed!
Arch Stanton said on 5/May/13
Yeah I think 6'5.5" now seeing him next to Penn and Shelton but I could believe he hits 6'6" earlier in the day.

If dennis rodman is 6"7 trace is 6"6 for sure. Id bet closer to 6"5.5 so 6"6 is a fair claim for Adkins.

Penn looked slightly taller on the Celebrity Apprentice.
said on 18/Feb/13
Might be the angle but Adkins looks slighter shorter than Penn to me, but if Penn is 6'6.5" Trace is pretty much near this mark. Very few guys would make Trace look slighter of frame but Penn somewhere manages it, the guy must weigh over 300 pounds!
Arch Stanton said on 18/Feb/13
As Rob said on Blake's page, 197 is possible but he's nothing under it and pretty much looks a legit 6'6" guy.

I was 6'6" in my youth, as you age you loose an inch or more in height. I bought a pair of boots from the same Nacona boot trailer he did. He wears a 14 1/2 A A A A!!!! I wear a 15D. Black cowhide leather. We pondered the width of ice skates :)

With 6'5" Blake Shelton. He looks taller in the other pics though and Shelton's hair makes him look taller. I think this about right.
Shaun said on 5/Sep/12
He looks a full 6'6" though Avi.
avi said on 4/Aug/12
well next to Nascar guy Richard Petty he has 3.5 inches or so i guess...Petty is listed as 6'2 but could be as low as 6'1.25 my friend has met him when he was a kid and comparing my friend next to him and next to his father (a 5'9 or 5'9.5 guy)it seems Petty comes out as a 6'1 or so guy. This leaves Adkins a respectable 6'5 or so.

My cousin met this guy and had a picture with him in his restaurant. My cousin says he is 6'6". I am 6'2" in bare feet and I was wearing sneakers and my cousin was wearing boots, so he may have had an inch advantage on me, but I would still say he is at least 6'5" in bare feet. In the picture they are of even heaight although my cousin remarked "The guy is huge! He was wearing sneakers here" 6'5.5" - 6'6" seems pretty close.

This guy has impeccable taste in clothes. Those jeans, dark red shirt and black hat look amazing. His clothes always look awesome.

He lived in my parent's neighborhood just outside of Nashville in a relatively modest house considering who he is. (That is, before it burned down.) He and his family are extremely down to earth. Let me tell you... the dude is a BEAST! I've never actually stood close to him when he's wearing cowboy boots, but without them I'd say he's 6'6 - 6'7. His shoulders block a doorway.
Shaun said on 15/Nov/11
Yeah Mike he does look 6'8" with boots, especially if wearing a hat.
LAN Jiao said on 30/Sep/11
i just watch trailer park of terror while trace atkins apear to be 6'6.5 with regular boots(1.2-.1.5in). he might be 6'5 barely.
Mike said on 17/Sep/11
I'm 6'3 and I was looking way up at him. 6'6 is easily true. Cowboy boots made it more like 6'8 or 9.
Legend said on 4/Nov/10
I could take him, and I'm only 5'9.75

Yea, I went to the CMA's this year and saw him(far away) and he was definitly just about that height, no less than 6'5.5". There were a lot of other really tall artists as well like Blake Shelton, Allan Jackson and Toby Keith but he's the biggest other than cowboy Troy but I didn't see him. Oh and Trisha Yearwood is also tall(and big) I swear she's like 6'2" with heals.
deke said on 3/Feb/06
This guy is that big I believe. He was the only person I ever saw on THE PYRAMID game show who couldn't get his hands through the straps in the winners circle. Big man, every bit of 6'6" I think.
