Trace Adkins has canceled his Friday night concert in Cle Elum, WA, due to devastating wildfires in the area. Though the actual concert venue is not in the direct path of the fire, Trace says, “I cannot in good conscience stage a concert this Friday while the community is under such strain.”
The fire is expected to take another seven days to contain, and Trace is grateful there has been no loss of life as a result of the blaze.
He says, “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.”
Trace encourages people to go to MyNorthwest.com to learn how to help victims of this fire as they evacuate their homes. He plans to come back and perform in the area again in the future to “celebrate the community’s strength.”
