Trace Adkins Joins Independent Film

Posted by Kasey Bell on 09/01/2009

In something less than a stretch, Trace Adkins will play fictional Country superstar Jimmy Knox in the upcoming film Lifted, due out in theaters in September 2010.
The film tells the story of a young aspiring singer whose life is changed when his Marine father is re-deployed to Afghanistan. Despite his problems, the boy decides to compete in a teen singing competition. Adkins' character is one of the guest celebrity judges on the show.
Lifted is being shot in Birmingham, Ala., as part of an initiative to improve the Alabama entertainment industry and will be dedicated to all the fallen soldiers of Operation Freedom.
