Trace Adkins is a man of many hats, both literally and figuratively. He achieved reality TV stardom on Donald Trump's "Celebrity Apprentice," he's dabbled in acting, and he laid out his conservative political views in the book, "A Personal Stand: Observations and Opinions from a Freethinking Roughneck." Adkins has also ventured into the comic book world with the launch of LUKE McBAIN, a four-part comic book series whose lead character was based on the country giant's likeness and persona.
But at the end of the day, he's a country singer - pure and simple.
Adkins made his debut in the country music world almost 15 years ago with a platinum-selling album and has since become an undeniable musical force, earning his place among the most identifiable artists of his generation.
An esteemed Grand Ole Opry member since 2003, Adkins has built a strong legion of fans by recording songs that possess insightful lyrics and cover a wide range of interests -- many from his own life experiences. With one of the most identifiable voices in country music, the Grammy-nominated artist has had twenty-eight singles land on Billboard's country chart, with 14 breaking into the Top 10. His albums achieve gold or multi-platinum status and have made chart-topping debuts.
Adkins has received widespread media recognition - from magazine covers to the movie screen, to countless appearances on national TV shows including, Anderson Cooper 360, CBS Early Show, Ellen DeGeneres Show, Larry King Live, Live with Regis & Kelly, Today Show and many, many more.
As a seasoned performer, Adkins has performed for millions of fans since the start of his career. His hard-driving stage show is full of hits, making him one of country music's top headlining and in-demand artists today. Adkins is presently serving as the official spokesperson for BC Headache Powder who is sponsoring his 2010 concert tour dates.
A long-time supporter of the U.S. military, Adkins has traveled overseas for three USO tours, performing for troops stationed in Kuwait, Iraq and Afghanistan. He has received numerous honorary awards in recognition of his leadership, patriotism and dedication and service to the troops, including the 2007 USO Merit Award, Wounded Warrior Project's (WWP) 2010 Talkhouse Award and the 2010 Medal of Honor from the Daughter's of the American Revolution.
With a fresh start into a new record deal with Show Dog-Universal Music, Adkins has released a new album, COWBOY'S BACK IN TOWN, which made its debut at the top of the charts upon its debut in August 2010. The disc's lead single, "This Ain't No Love Song," has become his latest Top 20 hit and is still climbing.
In conjunction with the new album release, Adkins made the rounds on the late night talk show circuit with appearances on Anderson Cooper 360, Tonight Show, Jimmy Kimmel Live, Late Night with Jimmy Fallon, Late Late Show with Craig Ferguson and Chelsea Lately, to name a few Upcoming, Adkins is scheduled to host the first ever American Country Awards airing live from the MGM Grand Garden Arena in Las Vegas on Monday, December 6 (8:00-10:00pm ET live/PT tape delayed) on FOX.
