In an unfortunate event, Trace Adkins’ home was destroyed on Saturday afternoon (June 4) near Nashville due to an accidental fire in the garage. The country superstar musician and his wife were not home at the time, but the trusted nanny was able to get their children out of the home safely and unharmed, while a neighbor of Adkins rescued their two dogs.
Losing one’s home can bring on unfamiliar emotions which may deeply affect couples, including high profile figures. A sense of loss is not discriminatory affecting everyone equally.
Albeit no lives were lost, Adkins and his wife suffered a tremendous loss. There will be tears, sadness and grief directly relating to the loss of not only the sentimental items, but from the loss of the structure they called ‘home.’
Some things can be replaced, such as Adkins’ Harley motorcycle, but there are other things that cannot be replaced which are family pictures, heirlooms and trophies, among other treasured items.
As with most couples, they may begin to have guilt feelings from feeling sad over losing trivial items when they believe they should feel blessed as the family survived and no one was injured. However, as with all fire victims, it is normal to feel sad, and it is normal to become angry, even when there were no injuries. These emotions play an important part in the healing process. They are expected after any traumatic experience. It will take time to heal.
Trace Adkins and family will need his fans’ support and understanding at this unfortunate time.
Adkins is scheduled to play the CMA Music Festival next Saturday.
