Country Music Star Trace Adkins Departs for Seventh USO Tour
Monday, November 26, 2012
Longtime USO supporter and tour veteran Trace Adkins will set out to once again lift the spirits of deployed troops and their families as he arrives in Japan today for a four-show tour.
The multi-platinum selling country music artist will be visiting servicemen and women at Yokota Air Base, Misawa Air Base, Camp Hansen and Kadena Air Base among other stops in Japan.
“There is nothing more important to me than family, they are what matters most in my life,” Adkins said. “That’s why I always look forward to doing these USO tours. In many ways, this organization has become family to me. Of course, we can never forget who we’re doing this for, the brave individuals in uniform and those who support them around the world.”
This USO tour will be Adkins' seventh in 11 years and over his previous six tours, Adkins has entertained more than 29,000 troops.
