OFFSTAGE: Lord Have Mercy. It’s Trace Adkins’ Badonkadonk

(CMT Offstage keeps a 24/7 watch on everything that’s happening with country music artists behind the scenes and out of the spotlight.)

We hate to see him go but love to watch him leave. You can’t blame him for what his mama gave him. Left, left … left, right, left. It’s so hard not to stare. I could go on like this all day now that I have literally seen Trace Adkins‘ honky-tonk badonkadonk. Not in person but on Twitter on Tuesday (Feb. 28). Adkins has just started getting the hang of tweeting — just in time for a trip to the hospital to have some kidney stones taken care of. “@ Vanderbilt having kidney stones busted. No big deal,” he wrote, adding a picture of his back when he was dressed in nothing but an open hospital gown. Then afterwards, “The doctor said that he got 8 stones and that the procedure went well. He seemed happy. The nurse said that everything else looked magnificent. She seemed absolutely giddy! Strange” and “In recovery. They said that I required an unusually large stint and that it is freakishly long. Thank you Lord!” I sincerely hope that Adkins gets well soon, and that he keeps on tweeting.
