Trace Adkins Cancels Show in Fire-Ravaged Washington State

Country star alerts fans to website where they can help victims of wildfires that are sweeping through the state.

Trace Adkins—whose home was destroyed by fire last year—has canceled a show in an area of Washington state that's near devastating wildfires.

Trace was set to play a show in Cle Elum, Wash., on Friday (Aug. 17), but he canceled it the day before. The country star said he coudn't "in good conscience" do a show while the neighbors deal with approaching fire.

The Swiftwater Cellars Amphitheater isn't directly in the line of fire, but Trace noted that it might be another seven days before the fires are under control.

In a statement, Trace also promised to return when the crisis is over.

He also urged fans to donate or offer other help through this website: mynorthwest.com.
