Sad News For Trace Adkins  

Trace Adkins has lost his father.  According to, Aaron Doyle Adkins died in Louisiana on Saturday. He was 71. Details on his passing haven't been revealed, but shortly after 1am yesterday, Trace's wife, Rhonda, tweeted a message of thanks to the masses. “Thank you for all of your love, prayers and support,” she wrote. “Sometimes we don't know where our journey will take us but I know he has a plan.”


Word surfaced last week that Trace’s dad was very ill when he left a Florida rehab center before finishing his program to be by his father's side. 


At that time, it was said that he'd decide how he'd continue with his treatment once the situation with his dad was resolved.  According to, the Adkins family will say their final goodbyes tomorrow. Services are scheduled to take place in Sarepta, Louisiana. Many prayers to the Adkins clan during this difficult time – we know they’ll get through, because tough people do.
