Trace Adkins on New Movie ‘Stagecoach,’ Not Having to ‘Kill Anybody’

Singer is right at home starring in a new Western

Trace Adkins has the lead role in Stagecoach: The Texas Jack Story, a new Western film released last week. The country singer plays Nathaniel Reed, a real-life outlaw who robbed several banks and trains in the 1880s. But Reed turned his life around after his infamous crime spree, eventually becoming a family man and preacher.

“He was just a tortured soul,” says Adkins, who shares an exclusive clip from the film in today’s Ram Report. “He didn’t really want to have to kill anybody. That’s the way I am. I just try to get through the day and not have to kill anybody. There’s a lot of paperwork. Ain’t nobody got time for that.”

Adkins is no stranger to the screen. Along with the new Stagecoach, he starred in the TV mini-series To Appomattox, in the holiday film An American Carol and opposite Matthew McConaughey in 2011’s The Lincoln Lawyer. This summer he released the rowdy new song “Lit.”

Stagecoach: The Texas Jack Story, costarring Kim Coates and Judd Nelson, is available now
