About Trace Adkins: Trace Adkins is one of Country music's most accomplished entertainers. His trademark baritone has powered countless hits to the top of the charts and turned albums into Platinum plaques, selling over 10 million albums, cumulatively. The Grammy-nominated member of the Grand Ole Opry is also a television personality, actor and author. He is a spokesman for the Wounded Warrior Program, the American Red Cross and will soon complete his eighth USO Tour.
His 2007 autobiography, A Personal Stand: Observations and Opinions from a Freethinking Roughneck, the 6'6" oil-rigger-turned-Country star recounted his rise to fame, brushes with death, battles with personal demons and just how the world’s biggest alpha-male handles fatherhood – he has five daughters. In 2008, Trace’s integrity and wry humor served him well as he became a finalist on NBC’s The Celebrity Apprentice. His return to Celebrity Apprentice All-Stars is now eagerly awaited.
In 2011, he played a tougher-than-nails biker in The Lincoln Lawyer and released his tenth studio album, PROUD TO BE HERE (Show Dog-Universal). It debuted atop the Billboard Country Chart and featured the Top Ten single, “Just Fishin’.”
In 2011, when a fire claimed the Adkins family’s home, Trace forged a relationship with the American Red Cross, who were among the first on the scene. He is now a spokesman for the esteemed organization and will compete on Celebrity Apprentice All-Stars in their name.
In December 2012, Trace will serve as co-host of the American Country Awards on FOX for the third consecutive year. He will release a new version of the Christmas classic, “We Three Kings,” and is preparing his eleventh studio album (Spring 2013), which will feature the new American anthem, “Tough People Do.”
