WHEELHOUSE RECORDS artist TRACE ADKINS donated his entire performance fee to ST. JUDE CHILDREN'S RESEARCH HOSPITAL after his performance at PRESS COMMUNICATIONS Country WKMK (THUNDER 106)/MONMOUTH-OCEAN, NJ's "THUNDER 106 GUYS WITH GUITARS UNDER THE STARS" concert on WEDNESDAY (7/13). According to the ASHBURY PARK PRESS, ADKINS appeared to be inebriated on stage and did not finish his set.
"The solution we reached with TRACE in donating his appearance fee to benefit the children of ST. JUDE's should allow each of us to move on from this event and realize that criticizing and intolerance does not advance the public good," stated WKMK GM RICHARD MORENA in the ASHBURY PARK PRESS. Added WKMK station manager AJ COLANTONI, "The events from last NIGHT were unfortunate and upsetting to many. Nonetheless, all members of the Country music world and empathetic fans of THUNDER NATION are united in sending our love, support, and prayers to TRACE!"
