Country music star Trace Adkins opened up his Tennessee farm on Sunday (28Aug11) so he could give 20 local kids fishing lessons.
The Chrome hitmaker invited kids from the Middle Tennessee chapter of the Big Brothers Big Sisters mentoring programme to enjoy the lake where he shot the video for his new single Just Fishin', a song about spending quality time with your children.
As well as picking up angling tips, the 10 big kids and their 10 little 'brothers and sisters' enjoyed a day of swimming, paddle boating and zip lining on the farm Adkins now calls home after his estate nearby was destroyed in a fire earlier this year (11).
A spokesperson for the country star says, "Everyone caught at least one fish, and all who attended left with a brand new fishing pole of their own, courtesy of Trace Adkins.
The singer was performing a show in Pennsylvania but he took time to phone home and welcome the kids to his farm.
