SHOW DOG – UNIVERSAL MUSIC artist TRACE ADKINS has announced that he has received an outpouring of support following the electrical fire that claimed his family's home in BRENTWOOD,TN over the past weekend. Today (7/7), he has appealed to friends and fans to instead direct their generosity to those who have lost everything in the wake of recent floods and tornadoes in the SOUTH.
ADKINS is asking for fans to give what they can to the AMERICAN RED CROSS American via CMT ONE COUNTRY - those wishing to help can click on www.redcross.org, or call 1-800 RED CROSS or text REDCROSS to 90999 to make a $10 donation.
"I have been blessed. My kids are ok, my wife is ok. I have my guitar and my songs,” said TRACE. Everything else can be replaced. Unfortunately, there are families out there who need help if they're to rebuild after these recent storms. The AMERICAN RED CROSS was one of the first on the scene to help my family and, through their work, others will receive the assistance they need to get back on their feet.”
Over the upcoming week, ADKINS will keep his performance commitments and return to ALASKA for his shows in FAIRBANKS on WEDNESDAY (6/8) and ANCHORAGE on THURSDAY (6/9). His family, who is settled at their farm outside of NASHVILLE, will rejoin him this weekend for his CMA FAN FEST performance at LP FIELD.
