TRACE ADKINS’ ACM AWARDS DOWNLOAD TO BENEFIT WOUNDED WARRIOR PROJECT
Country star Trace Adkins and the West Point Glee Club are teaming up on the 44th Academy of Country Music Awards on April 5th to help unveil the Academy’s newly re-branded charitable fund, ACM Lifting Lives™. In a special performance, Adkins will sing “Til the Last Shot’s Fired,” which will be made available for fans at iTunes. All profits from downloads will be funneled through Lifting Lives to the Wounded Warrior Project (WWP), an organization that provides extensive support to troops who have been wounded in combat.
A long-time supporter of the U.S. military, Adkins traveled to Iraq and Afghanistan last year where he and his band performed for more than 10,000 United States military personnel in partnership with the USO. “Til the Last Shot’s Fired,” from Adkins’ current album X, delves into the topics of military history and personal sacrifice and features the West Point Glee Club on the song.
The Academy of Country Music would like to thank the following people and organizations for making this special moment possible: Trace Adkins, American Airlines, CAA, EMI Capitol, Rob Crosby, Mike Curb, Mike Curb Music, iTunes, Planet Hollywood, Doug Johnson, Paul Overstreet, Scarlett Moon Music, Sweet Radical Music and The West Point Glee Club.
Lifting Lives is the newly-re-branded but longstanding charitable arm of the Academy of Country Music, which works to improve lives through music. The philanthropy was previously referred to as the Academy of Country Music Charitable Fund (ACMCF).
