Trace Adkins Released from Hospital

Trace Adkins has been released from a Nashville-area hospital following a Tuesday night (Oct. 8) accident on his farm in Rutherford County, Tenn. Adkins was building a gravel road when the small tractor he was operating toppled on him after a portion of the new road collapsed. Trapped beneath the tractor, the 40-year-old singer called for help after retrieving a cell phone from the pocket of his overalls. Adkins’ injuries include a crush injury to the chest and bruises to the shoulder and pelvis. The accident forced Adkins to cancel weekend concerts in San Antonio and Fort Worth. 10/10/02
