He also explains just how the world's biggest alpha-male handles fatherhood with five daughters. In 2008, Trace's integrity and wry humor served him well as a finalist on NBC's The Celebrity Apprentice and prepared him for his return - on behalf of the American Red Cross - to NBC's All-Star Celebrity Apprentice (Sunday nights, 9PM EST/PT).Trace has played a tough as nails biker in The Lincoln Lawyer (starring Matthew McConaughey), he developed and hosted GAC's "Great American Heroes" series to pay tribute to every-day Americans doing great things and he has hosted the American Country Awards on FOX for three consecutive years.In 2011, Trace last album, Proud To Be Here debuted atop the Billboard Country Chart powered by the Top Ten hit, "Just Fishin'," and his eleventh studio album, Love Will... is planned for release in the Spring of 2013 on Show Dog-Universal Music.  See full bio on IMDb »
