"Pronounce his name correctly, because he gets mad if you don't. I pronounced it incorrectly in a song that I did and he let me know. I said 'Mcconaughee' because it rhymed. I didn't have a 'hey' rhyme so I didn't say 'Mcconaughey'." Country singer-turned-actor Trace Adkins had a tense conversation with Matthew Mcconaughey after the Hollywood star took issue with the way his name was pronounced in the song Hell, I Can Do That. The pair star together in new crime drama The Lincoln Lawyer.
