It’s been just over a year since Trace Adkins lost his home to a devastating fire. Now, the country star’s concert schedule has been interrupted by fires of an entirely different magnitude. Trace has canceled his performance tonight (Aug. 17) at the Swiftwater Cellars Amphitheater in Cle Elum, Washington, due to raging wildfires.

“I cannot in good conscience stage a concert this Friday while the community is under such strain,” the singer says in a statement. “We have been following the developments closely and while the Swiftwater Cellars Amphitheater is not directly in the fire’s path, Gov. Gregoire has declared a state of emergency and reports indicate that the fire, which has claimed 22,000 acres, will require up to seven more days before it is comfortably contained.

“I know all too well what residents are feeling as they evacuate their homes,” Trace continues. “I thank God that reports indicate no loss of life. As the hundreds of firefighters, National Guardsmen and community leaders work overtime to keep everyone safe, I hope that those who have the means will also offer their help.”

The country star is directing people to this website to learn how to help wildfire victims.
