When the new season of  All-Star Celebrity Apprentice  premieres Sunday,  Trace Adkins  will be armed with something he didn’t have when he was on the show the first time: a game plan.

“The first time I was on there, I didn't have a strategy,” Trace tells ABC News Radio. “I didn't know what I was doing. I'd never watched  The Apprentice  before...I just kind of kept my head down and laid low for a few weeks until I kind of got a feel for what was going on, and then I started playing the game.”

Even without an initial plan, Trace still went on to be Season 7’s runner up, bested only by CNN host  Piers Morgan . But this time he's prepared.

 “It's the  All Stars , so everybody's been on the game before. So, everybody knows how to play,” Trace says. “So, I knew from day one I needed to go ahead and step up and lay down the gauntlet and go for it. So, that's what I did.” 

Trace will be playing for the American Red Cross, who helped his family during the 2011 fire that destroyed their home while he was on the road. He’s also teaming up with the Hard Rock Cafe to raise money for the Red Cross through the sale of a pin that combines the two iconic logos. It's available at Hard Rock locations and  online .

All-Star Celebrity Apprentice  premieres March 3 at 9 p.m. Eastern on NBC.
