Trace Adkins - Trace Adkins Battles On With 'Proud To Be Here'

Trace Adkins, the American country singer who lost his house in a fire on 4th June 2011, is going ahead with plans to release his new album 'Proud To Be Here'. Fans of Adkins were concerned the record would be delayed in light of recent events but the 49-year-old is yet to miss a performance and will release the album as scheduled on 2nd August 2011.
A faulty power strip in the family's garage was the cause of the recent blaze but Adkins confirmed his wife and children were unharmed. He's now looking ahead towards the release of 'Proud To Be Here', his tenth studio album. Trace says the album now takes on more importance, saying, "The title song could have been based on my life and it's about narrow escapes and the grace that guides you through. Obviously, now after the fire, Proud To Be Here takes on an even greater significance. Once again, I've been blessed and everyone is safe." Despite fans concern for Adkins and his family, the country singer has redirected all offers of support to the American Red Cross, to help those hit by the recent floods and tornadoes in the South. Recorded in the Spring of 2011, 'Proud To Be Here' was produced by Kenny Beard and Mark Wright. A deluxe edition of the album contains an additional 4 tracks, one of which features Blake Shelton.
As well as being a multi-million selling country artist, Trace Adkins recently appeared on the hit reality show 'Celebrity Apprentice', and had a supporting role in 'The Lincoln Lawyer' with MATTHEW MCCONAUGHEY
