Trace Adkins ‘Lifted’ to Movie-Star Status
Trace Adkins conquered the small screen last year as the 2008 runner-up on 'Celebrity Apprentice' appeared as himself -- and the Angel of Death -- in the big-screen feature, 'An American Carol.' Now he's headed back to theaters in an independent film titled 'Lifted.' It's the story of Henry Matthews, a talented young singer whose family life is disrupted when his Marine father is re-deployed to Afghanistan.
Trace will play country superstar Jimmy Knox, the guest judge of an 'American Idol'-like show called 'Teen Starquest.' Henry, portrayed by newcomer 12-year-old Uriah Shelton, is a 'Starquest' hopeful in the film.
'Lifted' is slated to be released in September 2010.
