Trace Plans Special ACM Performance
Trace Adkins will give a special performance of his song “Til the Last Shot’s Fired” at The 44th Annual Academy of Country Music Awards telecast, April 5.
Trace will be joined by the West Point Glee Club in support of the Wounded Warrior Project, the charity that has been selected this year by ACM Lifting Lives, the Academy's newly rebranded charitable fund. Trace and the West Point Glee Club will dedicate their performance of “Til the Last Shot’s Fired” to the servicemen and women who will be seated in the front rows at the ceremony. Fans will be able to download the song at iTunes and all profits from downloads will benefit the Wounded Warrior Project, an organization that provides support to troops who have been wounded in combat. “It’s a privilege to perform this song with such a distinguished choir for the great servicemen and women in whose honor it was written,” says Trace. “We should always let our military know how much we appreciate them putting their lives on the line for us every day. The WWP provides an incredible service to those wounded in combat, so it’s an honor to donate proceeds of the performance downloads to support this important and worthy charity.” The 44th Annual Academy of Country Music Awards airs Sunday, April 5, from the MGM Grand Garden Arena in Las Vegas on CBS-TV at 8 p.m. ET.
