SHOW DOG – UNIVERSAL MUSIC artist TRACE ADKINS appeared on CNN’s “ANDERSON COOPER 360” last night (6/17) to talk about the oil spill in the GULF. ADKINS, who previously worked on an oil rig for six years, talked to COOPER about his first reaction to the disaster and his opinions of those involved with the efforts to contain the spill.
TRACE said: "There had to be a company man that was pressuring and forcing somebody, you know, at TRANSOCEAN to do something that they probably didn't think was safe and somehow somebody's objections got overridden and that's unfortunate.” He mentioned that deep water drilling as a reaction to the spill is "a terrible idea,” adding: "That's like kicking a man when he's down. That is the most idiotic, juvenile overreaction. It's an uninformed decision is what it is. It's just ridiculous."
