In correlation with the title of his new album, X, which will also be released Nov. 25, Trace dedicated ten days to performing for 10,000 United States military personnel in partnership with the USO. "It's our duty to make sure those men and women know we appreciate them putting their lives on the line for us every day," says Trace. "You are playing for a crowd that is more appreciative and responsive than any other crowd you'll ever play for again and you just want to make them smile. That's what it was about for me." Trace performed many of his biggest hits on the tour, including “Ladies Love Country Boys,” “Arlington ” and his current single, “Muddy Water.”
