Trace Adkins has received an outpouring of support after the devastating electrical fire at his TN home this weekend. He has appealed to friends and fans to instead direct their generosity to those who have lost everything in the wake of recent floods and tornadoes in the South. He asks that the kindness and donations offered to him be extended to the American Red Cross via CMT One Country - those wishing to help can click on redcross.org, call 1-800 RED CROSS or text REDCROSS to 90999 to make a $10 donation. Message and data rates may apply.
“I have been blessed. My kids are ok, my wife is ok. I have my guitar and my songs. 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 on the scene to help my family and, through their work, others will receive the assistance they need to get back on their feet,” said Trace.
Brad Paisley had some not-so-legal fun with pal Jeff Gordon during the making of the video for his new single, 'Old Alabama,' managing to run Jeff's racecar out on the open streets.
"We drove the 24 car around on the road," Brad tells ESPNgo.com. "We didn't make it street-legal. We just drove the thing. That's the beauty of videos -- they'll close down roads for you. People were freaking out! Imagine that car going by you -- Jeff himself was out there driving his racecar on the roads. People saw him go by, and were like, 'What?!! He didn't even take time to switch vehicles before driving home from work?!'"
