He got a lot of face time on the small screen, and now Trace Adkins is headed to the big screen. The 'Celebrity Apprentice' runner-up is joining the cast of David Zucker's new comedy, 'American Carol.' The movie is a spoof of the classic Charles Dickens holiday tale. Adkins will play 'The Spirit of Christmas Future,' a Grim Reaper-like character who brings musical insight to 'Scrooge,' played by 'Frasier' actor Kelsey Grammer. The movie boasts several celebrity cameos including Jon Voight, Leslie Nielsen and Dennis Hopper.

Adkins is also celebrating a spot on top of the country singles chart right now with his latest hit, 'You're Gonna Miss This.' It's his first No. 1 song since 2006's 'Ladies Love the Country Boys.' Watch him sing both of those hits live in his AOL Sessions performance.
