Trace Adkins collaborates with a few big-time celebrity friends on his 11th studio album, Love Will. Due in stores May 14, the new track list features two-time Grammy winner Colbie Caillat joining the country music superstar on the poignant love song, “Watch the World End.” The song, which was written by Brett Eldredge and Jeremy Spillman, depicts the commitment between two people who vow to stick together regardless of hard circumstances.
The Harlem Gospel Choir sings with Trace on the spiritual tune, “Love Will,” while the band Exile sing with him on their own hit, “Kiss You All Over.”
“What is love, if not a collaboration between unique individuals?” Trace asks, by way of explaining the album’s special guests. “Regardless of genre, I’m a fan of strong songwriting and vocal ability — I can’t say enough about what Colbie, the Harlem Gospel Choir and Exile brought to the table in their own way. It is an honor to have such talented performers, songwriters and producers join me on the most inspiring, satisfying album of my career.”
In anticipation of the album’s release date, fans can visit his website each week to hear a new song from the CD. In addition, they can also complete online tasks related to his new album and his appearance on the TV show, “All-Star Celebrity Apprentice,” for a chance to win several prizes, including a trip to the live finale of the show in New York City or an all-expenses paid cruise aboard Country Cruising 2014.
The 51-year-old singer will hit the road next month to perform a series of shows in support of the new album, including stops in New Mexico, California and Kentucky. See all of his upcoming shows here.
