Trace Adkins is the newest Celebrity Apprentice. In the final competition he beat out Penn Jillette to win $250,000 for his charity, The American Red Cross. And what a GREAT cause it is!!!!
Trace knew it would be tough. "From day one, I looked at that cast and thought I know Penn. I've been around him, I've been to his show, been backstage, hung out with him, I've been to his show. I've been familiar with him over the years. And from day one I figured that if I was going to win this thing, I'd have to go through him."
Way to go Trace!!!! And The American Red Cross!!!
