By certain calculations, Trace Adkins towers 19 inches above Broadway star-turned-aspiring country star Kristin Chenoweth.

"I'm gonna have to bring that to her attention—her shortcomings," he said during a teleconference with reporters Tuesday (Nov. 29).

The second annual fan-voted ACA show airs live Dec. 5 at 8 p.m. ET on Fox.
