Trace Adkins' Tennessee home destroyed by a fire
Country singer Trace Adkins lost his Brentwood, Tennessee home in a fire on Saturday evening while the singer was en route to a show in Alaska. After landing and learning about the blaze he immediately boarded a return flight home.
"The home Trace Adkins shares with his family has been lost in a fire that began early Saturday evening. Thankfully, Mr. Adkins, his wife Rhonda and their three daughters are unharmed," a statement on the singer's official website read. The site also features photos of the destroyed home. "The blaze spread rapidly but was quickly contained and did not spread to any other homes."
"Trace wishes to express his gratitude for the immediate response of the Brentwood Fire Department and is humbled by the outpouring of concern from friends and fans," the statement read.
Adkins is known for hits like "(This Ain't) No Thinkin' Thing" and "Ladies Love Country Boys." He was a finalist on the 2008 season of "Celebrity Apprentice" and lost to Piers Morgan.
He and his third wife Rhonda have three daughters and he also has two daughters from his first marriage. Adkins is scheduled to play the CMA Music Festival next Saturday.
