Trace Adkins has announced a free concert to help raise money for the tornado-devastated Western Kentucky region.
The concert, titled “SOMEWHERE IN AMERICA: A Concert For Mayfield” presented by KIOTI Tractor, will take place at Mayfield High School’s CFSB War Memorial Stadium in Mayfield, Kentucky, on May 20.
Mayfield was the site of a 2021 tornado that leveled the town as it ripped across Western Kentucky, claiming more than 50 lives and displacing thousands in the process.
The show is open to the public as Adkins and KIOTI Tractor seek to rebuild the town of Mayfield.
“We were looking for a place to do a video for this song on our new album, called ‘Somewhere In America,’ and the song just talks about how somewhere in America there’s still people that have that indomitable spirit, that resilience, and we could think of no place better that exemplified that than Mayfield, KY,” Adkins explained in an interview on NBC‘s “TODAY.” “So now I’ve spoken with mayor O’Nan and she’s been wonderful to work with and so we’re going to go to Mayfield and give them a pat on the back.”
The city mayor Kathy O’Nan thanked Adkins on behalf of the people of Mayfield for coming to the city on May 20 for the filming of the video for his song “Somewhere In America,” from his widely acclaimed 25th anniversary album, THE WAY I WANNA GO.
The “SOMEWHERE IN AMERICA: A Concert For Mayfield” is part of Adkins’ ongoing nationwide SOMEWHERE IN AMERICA 2023 TOUR.
