Adkins’ Rendition of the Classic Christmas Song Recorded Exclusively for Partnership with Shriners Hospitals for Children

NEW YORK, N.Y. – Though he stands at 6’6” and is known for his booming baritone, country hitmaker Trace Adkins has time and time again used his voice to aid those in need, especially around the holidays. This holiday season, Adkins partnered with Shriners Hospitals for Children to ensure that the children being treated at Shriners Hospitals are able to go home with their families for Christmas. On Tuesday, December 18, the Grand Ole Opry member, along with JP Pennington, Les Taylor and Sonny LeMaire of Exile, will perform “I’ll Be Home for Christmas” on NBC’s TODAY with a few special guests from the hospital in the audience.
“I’m honored to bring a few patients from Shriners Hospitals for Children with me to experience the Rockefeller tree at the holidays,” shares Adkins. “My hope for this campaign is that we are able to play a small role in helping the children and families by creating an awareness for all the good things Shriners Hospitals does year-round."

The holiday campaign runs through December 25 and donations can be made at or by calling 855-661-5683.

The GRAMMY-nominated country icon is currently headlining a 30-show residency at Gaylord Opryland Resort in Nashville, Tennessee featuring songs from Adkins’ holiday album, The Kings Gift. A Trace Adkins Christmas entertains fans with Christmas standards and Celtic classics.
