Trace Adkins’ Portland Fans Aid Nashville Flood Relief
Trace Adkins used his star power to gather fans and raise funds for Nashville flooding victims earlier this week.
Listeners of Portland radio station 99.5 FM -- who each donated a minimum of $5 to flood relief efforts -- were invited to the station to meet Trace. Fans began to line up about 6:30 A.M. and once Trace arrived, he did not disappoint. Not only did Trace pose for photographs but he signed everything from a hubcap to a pair of bull horns.
"I've got seven minutes to get to work. But it's worth it," a female fan who showed up to get a picture with the singer told Oregonlive. "I mean, he's gorgeous!"
"It is bad, but we'll get through it and be OK," Trace said of the flooding that devastated Nashville and the surrounding area earlier this month.
A guitar case full of cash that had been collected thanks to Trace's appearance in rainy Portland should advance the Nashville rebuilding efforts.
Trace begins a tour on June 19 at Holmdel, N.J. with dates scheduled until Sept. 25 in Mansfield, Mass.
