August 22, 2011 – At Home With Trace Adkins

Trace Adkins invited Country Weekly to his rural Tennessee farm to reflect on family, his new music and the recent fire that destroyed his Nashville-area home. Though his wife and children were not hurt in the fire, Trace admits that the aftermath of the incident is just beginning to take a personal toll.

“I had convinced myself that I wasn’t really affected by this whole thing,” Trace explains. “It has affected me more than I thought it had.”

Trace is proud of the family farm, which took a lot of hard work to complete. “I’ve done the majority of the work out there myself, and it gives me great satisfaction and a sense of ownership to know that your sweat helped create what you have.”

Trace also talks about his recent album, Proud to Be Here, which was released Aug. 2.
