Trace Adkins is no stranger to reality television. In 2008, Adkins made his reality premiere on Celebrity Apprentice where he made it all the way to the season finale. The country star would lose the title to Piers Morgan, but redeemed himself five years later when he returned for All-Star Celebrity Apprentice and dominated the season, ultimately winning the title and earning more than $1.5 million for The Red Cross. 

Adkins' appearance on the NBC competition series endeared him even more to country music fans as they had an opportunity to see another side of the star that few get to see. It seems only natural that Adkins would be tapped for other reality television appearances following his success on Celebrity Apprentice, but there is one show that we definitely won't be seeing him on. 

Trace spoke to Fox News recently and revealed that he and his friend Blake Shelton had discussed the possibility of him appearing on The Voice, but that Shelton had a good reason for not inviting his buddy on the show. 

"He said I was too mean," Adkins said. "He said some of these people are fragile and they don't need to be subjected to me."

Ouch, Blake! Even though we won't be seeing Trace on The Voice, we will be able to catch him performing as part of "A Capitol Fourth," PBS' all-star music and fireworks extravaganza celebrating the Fourth of July. Adkins will be singing his new single, "Still A Soldier," a song that pays tribute to our troops and veterans. 

"It's been my privilege to meet thousands of those folks over the years through work I've done with veterans’ organizations and at their core, they are still soldiers," Adkins told Fox News. "If the phone rang and they got called back, they would go back and wouldn't even think twice about it."
