Sometimes it can seem like an entertainer is everywhere at once all of a sudden, and this week has been a pretty busy one for Trace Adkins.

He's already appearing as a mentor on The Voice, where he recorded some hilarious promos with judge Blake Shelton.

But the country singer (and sometimes actor) is also appearing in the new movie I Can Only Imagine, inspired by the hit song of the same name.

And the uplifting story seems like a perfect fit for the musician.

The new film is inspired by MercyMe's "I Can Only Imagine," the best-selling Christian single ever.

The song became a surprising crossover hit when it was released in 2001, getting a lot of play on non-Christian radio stations.

“It was No. 1 on [the local Dallas] station for, like, six months," remembers the band's lead singer Bart Millard.

"Up there with 50 Cent's In Da Club and some J.Lo song."

The track went on to sell 2.5 million copies, becoming the first ever double platinum Christian record.

But the story behind the record, which the movie will explore, is just as inspiring as the song itself.
