Country music star Trace Adkins recently partnered with Shriners Hospitals for Children for a special holiday campaign featuring a new rendition of “I’ll Be Home for Christmas” featuring background vocals and an appearance by the band Exile.
“It is my distinct honor to be part of Shriners Hospital for Children’s holiday campaign,” Adkins shares in a press release. “Children are truly the purest and most innocent among us and don’t deserve any of the pain they have to endure. My sincere hope is that – as a father who has been blessed with five healthy daughters – I can play a small part in helping not only the children but the families of the children as well.”

“Shriners Hospitals for Children is proud to partner with country star and humanitarian Trace Adkins this holiday season,” said Mel Bower, chief communications and marketing officer for Shriners Hospitals for Children. “The compassionate values Adkins represents align perfectly with our health care system’s mission to make the world a better place by providing hope and healing to children, and we are so honored to collaborate with him on this very special project.”
Fans can see Adkins on the road in 2019 with Blake Shelton on his Friends & Heroes 2019 Tour.
