Trace Adkins is grateful to his fans for their support following the electrical fire that destroyed the family’s home outside Nashville, Saturday, June 4 . Now, he is appealing to fans to help others who have suffered far worse losses due to recent floods and tornadoes, particularly in the South. Trace is requesting that the donations offered to him and his family instead be directed to the American Red Cross through CMT One Country.
“I have been blessed. My kids are OK, my wife is OK,” Trace explained in a statement. “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 to help my family, and through their work, others will receive the assistance they need to get back on their feet.”
Those wishing to help can visit redcross.org , call (800) RED CROSS or text REDCROSS to 90999 to make a $10 donation.
