I’m gonna say 6’5.5-.75 peak max and 6’5 today
Canson said on 10/Apr/21
@Christian: the more I see, the more I agree with you. 6’5.75” peak height perhaps or even 6’5.5” is possible. Anything 6’5.5-6’6 and 6’5 looks possible today. He looked somewhat shorter than Dennis Rodman and that was a while back. Not sure Rodman was still 6’6.5 (if he ever was) then. Although I don’t think a peak Rodman was less than 6’6.25 or 199

He looks 6'5 1/2 next to blake who is 6'4 1/4.
I highly doubt this guy will ever be 5'2 even if he does become 1000 years old. Highy doubt.
Christian 6'5 3/8" said on 5/Dec/20
Peak wise, a full 6'6" isn't out of the question. 197cm is possible too. Maybe anywhere between 6'5.5"-6'6"
said on 2/Dec/20
@Editor Rob: I wonder if he’s lost an inch now. Looks 6’5” in a few pics with Trump although I’m not sure how tall Trump was when this was taken. But he looks distinctly shorter than Rodman too. Possible he was under 6’6 at his peak (perhaps 6’5.5-.75)
It is possible he's closer to 6ft 5 today.
Canson 6'4.25 said on 2/Dec/20
@Christian: do you see a flat 6’6 at a low or more 197cm range? I have Kelley at best your height or slightly less
Nik Ashton said on 8/Jul/20
@ Lisa Whitley - He’ll be hoping to live long enough to be under 6’0” though, I’m hoping to live long enough to 🐝 4’4”! I won’t be 4’4” (nowt wrong with that) on my next birthday but I will be **! How tall are you? 👍
Lisa Whitley said on 6/Jul/20
As long as he stays at least 6 feet tall, keeps his hair in a ponytail underneath his cowboy hat, and has that wry grin, he will always be handsome to me!!!!!
Christian 6'5 3/8" said on 20/May/20
A more legit 6'6" than someone like Charles Kelley IMO, although Adkins lost a bit of height.
Nik said on 27/Apr/20
This guy is refreshingly honest and I am delighted to give him his 70th comment!
Nik said on 27/Apr/20
His above comment shows that height doesn't matter except when thought about in a positive way.
Rampage(-_-_-)Clover said on 14/Mar/20
Rob, is a little over 6ft6 peak a possibility?
Looks it w/h Blake Shelton
Dream said on 22/Jul/19
Trace Adkins looked shorter than Jim Stacy, with Luke Bryant.
Bo Burnham looked taller than Jim Stacy, with Puddles Pity Party.

Adkins (cowboy boots, I'm guessing, lol) and 6'4.75" Lennox Lewis (2008)... Click Here
Kayla Newton said on 16/Mar/19
Most of his height has to those legs. They gotta be 5 ft long lol. Love Trace Adkins.
Canson said on 12/Jan/19
He can look 6’5 in pics but no less. Never looks 6’6 anymore
Junior Hernandez 1990 said on 10/Jan/19
Trace look like a taller version of Hulk Hogan plus David Morse.
Jrbowe42 said on 18/Nov/18
He's a big guy. I think him being 6'6"-6'6.25" peak and 6'5.5" today is believable.
berta said on 25/Oct/18
everything is big on this guy. He can look like a 192 guy when standing alone but beside people he looked legit 6 foot 6 guy. I dont know his height today. But i guess 1 cm loss is possible. He is in very good shape.
said on 15/Sep/18Click Here
Rob,how tall do you think these women next to him are?(Miss Universe and Miss USA 2007)
5ft 8-9 and 9-10 for them could be possible.
Cbass said on 15/Jul/18
Xistenz, you can't see there footwear in that pic. I am 6'-3" but when in in my rodeo boots I'm 6'-5 1/2".
Jrbowe42 said on 9/Jul/18
Great singer! Seems like a cool guy too. I can easily see him being 6‘6 or even a little over, like 6‘6.5, at his peak. He’s probably 6‘5.5 or so now.
said on 16/Apr/18
Take a look at this Click Here
So different from the picture on here of Trace and Blake.
Canson said on 5/Feb/18
@Bobby: that may be a little too low for him peak. He was over 6’5” peak I have a feeling. But Maybe today he’s around 6’5”.
Canson said on 15/Dec/17
@Christian: precisely that! I’d say weak 6’4”
Christian-6'5 3/8 said on 14/Dec/17
How tall would you say Blake Shelton is, about 192-193?
Canson said on 13/Dec/17
He’s looking no better than 196-197 today. Rodman has him by an inch. May have never been a legit 6’6” at his lowest to begin with
Rampage(-_-_-)Clover said on 13/Dec/17
He actually looks 199cm w/h Blake
Richard said on 19/Sep/17
He looks alot taller than blake shelton.
Canson said on 31/Jul/17
Looks an inch shorter than Rodman but prob 6'5 1/2 still at worst 6'5.25 maybe
Danny said on 13/Jun/17
He makes Blake Shelton look like a little kid haha
Mimi said on 20/May/17
Wow I've never seen Blake Shelton with a guy taller than him.
Canson said on 10/Sep/16
Rampage, I have to admit He does still look near 6'6". I'd say peak he'd be easily no less than 197.5 at his lowest and maybe 199.5-200 out of bed. Meaning 6'5.75 at his lowest which in essence is 6'6. Maybe today he's 196-197 6'5.5
Rampage(-_-_-)Clover said on 23/Jun/16
He still looks a decent 6ft6 w/h Blake
Rampage(-_-_-)Clover said on 7/Jun/16
These country artists tend to be on the tall side. I actually mixed up this guy with Toby Keith and Alan Jackson
said on 22/Sep/15
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?
yes, the last 3-4 years he may have shipped a 1/4 or 1/2 inch. It's believable.
said on 19/Sep/15
Shelton is leaning in that photo though. In others doesn't look 2 inches Click Here
said on 19/Sep/15
@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.
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.
said on 20/Jul/15
@Rob, do you think 6'5.5 might be more realistic? With 6'6.5 Penn Jilette. Click Here
Grey said on 18/Apr/15
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.
said on 19/Feb/15
He's at least 6'6.. Blake Shelton is a confirmed 6'5 and Trace almost looks a full two inches taller here.
Tom said on 26/May/14
Wade Barrett and Trace Adkins are the same height
Damon said on 15/May/14
I'm with Arch on this one. The guy may even pull of 199cm
Arch Stanton said on 31/Jan/14
I think just shy barefoot makes sense, but he definitely does look very close in my eyes.
6'9" dude said on 15/Jan/14
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"
said on 2/Dec/13
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"
said on 10/Jul/13Click Here
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.
said on 10/Jul/13Click Here
Here he doesn't look anything under 6 ft 6...
Brad said on 20/May/13
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.
Fern194cm-192cm said on 12/May/13
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.
Mike 181 said on 7/Apr/13
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.
Ace said on 4/Mar/13
Penn looked slightly taller on the Celebrity Apprentice.
said on 18/Feb/13Click Here
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.
Drew said on 25/Oct/12
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 :)
said on 5/Sep/12Click Here
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.
shrapnel said on 2/Jan/12
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.
chriszaun said on 22/Dec/11
he is 6 foot 6 ,whith cowboy boots and hat he is around 6 foot 9
Somebody... said on 16/Dec/11
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.
Shaun said on 27/Dec/10
Yeah he does look a bit like Hulk Hogan and very similar in height/frame to a peak Hogan, only Hogan was beefier because of all the training and roids.
Shaun said on 27/Dec/10
Actually in video he looks a lot heavier than in pictures. i'd guess between 18 and 19 stone now.
Legend said on 4/Nov/10
I could take him, and I'm only 5'9.75
Doug said on 31/Mar/09
HUGE. Wears a cowboy hat too and boots which makes him look 6'8".
Anonymous said on 12/Nov/08
I'm 6'4" and met him at a concert in Monroe, WA. I was looking up to him, in more ways than one. Definitely 6'6". My brother is also 6'6" and Trace is right at that level.
Anonymous said on 27/Mar/08
according to Piers, Trace is 6'7" in cowboy boots
fern said on 27/Mar/08
trace is 6,6 and lennox is 6,5 there is a 1 inch diff there heights are perfect but i'd upgrade lennoxs height from 195 cm to 196 cm
andrey said on 15/Feb/08
he appears to be just like 2 cm over lennox on the celebrity apprentice although at times they seem to be one height
so this definitely makes lennox AT LEAST 6.5, not 6,4 something as it is clained in his profile on this site. I'd actually say that lennox is closer to 6,6 if we believe that trace's height is tru
I'd say that
Paul Roadman said on 26/Jan/08
hoo wee he's tall indeed, he's 6'6" maybe 6'6 1/2" , that makes two of us.
nashvegas said on 9/Dec/07
I saw him in the Cool Springs Chucky Cheese with his kid. He was wearing flip flops and is a freakin' giant. I would have guessed even taller than 6'6".
Atoadaso said on 19/Nov/07
This guy will be on the reality show "Celebrity Apprentice". Also, will be 6'5" former HW champ Lennox Lewis.
Anonymous said on 19/Apr/06
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.
