As the winner NBC's All-Star season of The Celebrity Apprentice in 2013, country artist Trace Adkins proved that his business acumen was as sharp as his songwriting skills. Shortly after winning the competition, Adkins released his first Christmas album The King's Gift and hit the road with The Christmas Show tour, a full-out theatrical production featuring a 12-piece band and a Celtic vocal ensemble. Raised in Louisiana, Trace Adkins moved to Nashville in the early '90s, making his debut in 1996 with Top 20 country hit "There’s a Girl In Texas." Adkins would release a series of successful albums in the 2000's, including the chart-topping Songs About Me in 2005 and Dangerous Man in 2006. He has recorded with such luminaries as Ronnie Milsap and Blake Shelton, and in 2009 he shared the stage with Martina McBride during their co-headlining Shine All Night tour, which generated millions in ticket sales. In live concert, Adkins showcases his raucous personality, Southern charm, and signature baritone twang, making him a favorite with country fans of all ages.
