Trace Adkins’ trademark baritone has powered countless hits to the top of the charts and sold over 10 million albums, cumulatively. The Grammy-nominated member of the Grand Ole Opry is a TV personality, actor, author, spokesman for the Wounded Warrior Program and the American Red Cross, for whom he raised over $1.5 million dollars as winner of NBC’s All-Star Celebrity Apprentice. As a dedicated supporter of the troops, Adkins has performed seven USO Tours.
His autobiography, A Personal Stand: Observations and Opinions from a Freethinking Roughneck, recounts the former oil-rigger's rise to fame, battles with personal demons and life as a father of five daughters. Trace played a tough as nails biker in The Lincoln Lawyer (starring Matthew McConaughey), he developed and hosted GAC’s “Great American Heroes” and in December, he will host the American Country Awards on FOX for the fourth consecutive year.
