Trace Adkins Speaks Out About Fire That Destroyed Home


BRENTWOOD, Tenn. – It was one week ago Saturday that fire destroyed Trace Adkins' Brentwood mansion. For the first time, he's speaking out about what happened.

"We're good, we have a place to stay, and we're good," Adkins said during an interview during CMA Music Festival on Saturday.

The massive fire broke out last Saturday at his home on Millsford Court in Brentwood. Fire investigators determined it was likely a power strip in the garage that started the fire.

The family's nanny is being credited with getting everyone out safely, after hearing some type of loud explosion coming from the garage. Trace's daughters, 9-year-old Brianna and 6-year-old Trinity along with a neighbor friend were all hustled safely out of the home by Weaver. No one was hurt in the fire.

Trace wasn't home at the time of the fire, and neither was his wife, Rhonda.

"You know we are still in a little bit of shock, you know every day. Like I was going to shave a couple of days ago, and I don't even have a razor, there's something that always comes up, I got two hats left, a pair of boots, I got a guitar, truck, and a great job, and my family is healthy, so I am good," Adkins explained.

Rhonda Adkins credited the family's emergency escape plan that included a meeting place outside the home.

Trace performed Saturday night at LP Field as part of the CMA Music Festival.
