While it’s difficult to musically classify Trace Adkins as anything other than one of the last bastions of stone-cold country, when it comes to his acting career, the bearded baritone is much more diverse. However, his new role serves his penchant for historical western films.
Trace stars as Marshal Walker in the upcoming film release The Outsider. In a time of renegades and vigilante justice, he attempts to keep peace in his town until a terrible tragedy strikes and taking the law into his own hands is given new meaning.
