Trace Adkins Joined by Kenny Arnoff for Holiday-Themed Number to End 2013 American Country Awards
Trace Adkins brought a little holiday spirit to the 2013 ACAs with the holiday classic ‘The Little Drummer Boy,’ closing out the show on Dec. 10. The singer was joined on stage by drummer Kenny Arnoff and a high school band for the performance.
Adkins’ co-host Danica Patrick introduced the singer by saying, “Let’s hear it for Trace Adkins,” before the camera panned to the tall and trim singer in front of the band and Christmas tree backdrop.
He looked chic for the performance, wearing all black, a gold belt buckle and his hair back in a ponytail underneath his black cowboy hat. Adkins kept the song in its naturally classic form, as you might expect.
The song, among other holiday classics, is featured on ‘The King’s Gift,’ the country singer’s holiday album. The Christmas song concluded this year’s ACA awards before Patrick joined him onstage and the two said their thanks and wished everyone a happy holiday season.
