What a week, last week was for Trace Adkins.  His new CD came out on Tuesday called "Love Will..." He was finalist on "All-Star Celebrity Apprentice"  He said he played to win it and true to his word, he was the winner on Sunday night.

Penn Teller’s ice cream won by selling the most at Walgreens last week but Trace won the most money overall by anyone on the show. His strategy included making a bold stance from the start when Donald Trump hand-picked first team leaders, choosing Trace, using that position to make sure everyone knew he meant business.

Adkins faced off against Penn Jillette in the reality show's final challenge last night to develop a new flavor for Walgreens' ice cream brand, along with the packaging and a promotional video promotional video for the product.

Trace says his wife Rhonda encouraged him to do the Celebrity Apprentice this time around for the American Red Cross Charity and that his country roots gave him an advantage.

Don't forget that Trace Adkins will be part of the Taste Of Country Music Festival, June 13-15 at Hunter Mountain. To see the schedule and to get your tickets go here.
