Trace Adkins, His Girls Watch Their House Being Demolished

Country star pulled his daughters out of school so they can get closure on fire that destroyed the home.

Anyone who watches ABC's Extreme Makeover: Home Edition has probably seen a house demolition.

And it is pretty cool to watch.

But country star Trace Adkins had another reason to gather the family yesterday (Oct. 26) to watch their Nashville-area home being demolished. Trace wanted his three younger daughters and his wife to have a sense of closure on the fire that destroyed that home earlier this year. (No one was hurt in the fire.)

Trace felt so strongly about it that he pulled the girls out of school for the house demolition.

“It didn’t seem to bother my 6-year-old and my 13-year-old,” he told The Tennessean. “They’re like me.

"My 10-year-old and [wife] Rhonda teared up. They use this big bulldozer and it’s like a big dinosaur eating your house.”
