Trace Adkins Is on Garth Watch

Trace Adkins is stepping up his game, thanks to another country star. Trace jokingly tells PEOPLE magazine that he finds the news of Garth Brooks‘ ending his retirement a bit disconcerting.

“It sure was nice for the rest of us while it lasted,” Trace laughs, adding, “We got a little more of the consumer money … Now Garth’s going to come back and eat it all up, and I’ll have to get a real job again. Thanks a lot, Garth!”

Trace feels that Garth’s massive fan base will no doubt put him on top again. “Shoot, he can come back and be as big as he wants to be, I’d imagine,” he says.

Of course we won’t be throwing any telethons for Trace, as he has multi-platinum sales of his own. But the Louisiana native has proven that he has other talents just in case the music career goes south. He has a way with tools, which he’s demonstrated with multiple appearances on ABC’s ‘Extreme Makeover: Home Edition.’

“They just do really noble work, and I was happy to be part of it,” Trace says. “Besides, he adds, “I’m a better hand than I am a celebrity!”

Trace is currently gearing up for his Shine All Night Tour with Martina McBride.
