Trace Adkins Money Raised on ‘All-Star Celebrity Apprentice’ Will Help Oklahoma Tornado Victims
Trace Adkins won All-Star Celebrity Apprentice on Sunday, and he donated the $1.5 million he won on the show to the American Red Cross. Little did he know at that time there would be deadly tornadoes the very next day in Oklahoma and the money he raised would be used to help out the families in need.Trace Adkins appeared on Live with Kelly and Michael on Tuesday and said, “I’ve got a lot of friends in Oklahoma and yeah, there are Red Cross volunteers on the scene right now.
That Red Cross organization was on the scene when Trace’s Nashville home burned two years ago, and he’s been working on paying it forward ever since.
Trace has a busy schedule ahead with a new concert tour, a movie, and a brand new album. 'Love Will' is a new collection of love songs from Trace Adkins. The album was finished last August, but Adkins decided to push back the release, as he'd just signed on to be a part of 'All-Star Celebrity Apprentice.' Over the next eight months, Adkins tells Taste of Country he kept cutting songs, eventually realizing he had 18 total -- 11 of which were love songs.
Trace Adkins will also be performing in June at the Taste of Country Music Festival.
