Country crooner Trace Adkins has had a big week! Adkins just released his 11th studio album full of love songs entitled "Love Will..." and he was announced as one of the final two on Donald Trump's "All-Star Celebrity Apprentice."
“I must admit I’m shocked," Adkins told Showbiz Tonight after making it to the finale. "I thought that I would have people really dig deep for me, but I had no idea they were going to go that deep. And I’ve raised a lot of money this year and I just have such gratitude for all the people who came to bat for me.”
Adkins, who is playing for the American Red Cross charity, said that returning to this season of "Apprentice" was more enjoyable than the first and he's very happy to make it all the way to the end.
Another thing for Adkins to be excited about? He just released his 11th studio album of love songs called "Love Will..."
“I am the guy that considers [Honky Tonk] ‘Badonkadonk’ a love song so let’s keep that in mind," Adkins said. "It is an album of love songs. I didn’t set out to do that, I truly didn’t. I ended up cutting 17, 18 songs and realized that 11 of those were love songs.”
