Trace Adkins isn't just a country superstar, but an all-around family man as well. Between touring and raising three girls with his wife, Rhonda, he's definitely a busy man.

Trace and Rhonda obviously raised their little girls to show courage in the face of danger and to think quick on their feet because back in June 2011 that's just what they did when the Adkins home caught on fire.

In an interview with the radio station Coyote 93.7, one of Adkins' daughters spoke about how they quickly dealt with the situation:

"We all ran outside and we called 911, of course, and then when they got here, we all walked over there and got the puppies, and we gave the puppies to my neighbors."


Rhonda actually wasn't at the house when this all occurred, but she was close by. When a neighbor called her, she quickly drove back home and found her daughters safe and sound. CNN spoke to Rhonda and according to them, she said, "They ran to their safe place like we practiced, in the front yard at a big tree and it worked. You know, fire safety is so important, and today we used it."

Way to go, girls! Trace and Rhonda definitely raised some smart, and beautiful, girls. He must be one forever-proud papa because of what his daughters had the courage to do four years ago.

Trace had to have been inspired by his girls when he decided to record "Then They Do" on his Greatest Hits Collection, Vol. 1. As a song about watching one's children grow up, and how it happens so quickly, he definitely knows the feeling well as a father. He even mentions his daughter, Brianna, in the song, thinking about the day that her boyfriend will ask for her hand in marriage. It's definitely a bittersweet tune that ever parent can relate to.

THEN THEY DO LYRICS

In the early rush of morning,
Trying to get the kids to school:
One's hanging on my shirt-tail,
Another's locked up in her room.
And I'm yelling up the stairs:
"Stop worrying 'bout your hair, you look fine."

Then they're fightin' in the backseat,
And I'm playing referee.
Now someone's gotta go,
The moment that we leave.
And everybody's late,
I swear that I can't wait till they grow up.

Then they do, and that's how it is.
It's just quiet in the mornin',
Can't believe how much you miss,
All they do and all they did.
You want all the dreams they dreamed of to come true:
Then they do.

Now the youngest is starting college,
She'll be leavin' in the Fall.
And Brianna's latest boyfriend,
Called to ask if we could talk.
And I got the impression,
That he's about to pop the question any day.

I look over at their pictures,
Sittin' in their frames.
I see them as babies:
I guess that'll never change.
You pray all their lives,
That someday they will find happiness.

Then they do, and that's how it is.
It's just quiet in the mornin',
Can't believe how much you miss,
All they do and all they did.
You want all the dreams they dreamed of to come true:
Then they do.

No more Monday PTA's,
No carpools, or soccer games.
Your work is done.
Now you've got time that's all your own.
You've been waitin' for so long,
For those days to come.

Then they do, and that's how it is.
It's just quiet in the mornin',
Can't believe how much you miss,
All they do and all they did.
You want all the dreams they dreamed of to come true:
Then they do.

Ah, then they do.
