According to what Trace Adkins also shared, this leaves the character of Annabelle with some important choices to make. “Now Annabelle must entrust her future to a man with a deadly past, as Jericho heads toward a tense showdown in this thrilling Western that unloads a double-barreled blast of action,” the “Every Light in the House” singer posted.
