Country music star Trace Adkins lost his Nashville home in a fire on Saturday. Luckily, no one was injured in the fire, but the house was completely destroyed.
Trace Adkins was reportedly on a plane to Alaska when the fire broke out at his home in the suburb of Brentwood near Nashville, TN. His three children were at home with a sitter but all managed to escape the flames without injury.
“The home Trace Adkins shares with his family has been lost in a fire that began early Saturday evening,” a spokeswoman forÂ the singerÂ said in a press statement. “Thankfully, Mr. Adkins, his wife Rhonda and their three daughters are unharmed.”
The entire Brentwood fire department turned out to try to fight the blaze, which was reported at 3:35PM, but they were unable to save the structure. TMZ.com reports the fire began in the garage, according to Brian Goss, the Assistant Fire Chief for the Brentwood fire department. Adkins’ 5,000-square foot home is a total loss after flames rapidly consumed the building.
Trace Adkins’ wife, Rhonda, was on her way home to Tennessee from Atlanta when a neighbor called to tell her the house was on fire. Rhonda Adkins told Channel 4 News that the family had a fire plan in place and everyone, including the family dog, got out safely.
“I’m just numb,” the singer’s wife of 14 years told The Tennessean. “I’m sad because we lost irreplaceable things like all Trace’s awards and our family photos. [But] you can replace things, not people. I’m just glad that my children are safe.”
Trace Adkins is scheduled to play at the CMA Music Festival next Saturday before heading back to Alaska for more shows starting on June 8.
