Callin’ On Trace

Singer Trace Adkins, who hit the top of the country charts last year singing the line “Somebody call 911…I left something turned on at home,” is singing a different tune. Adkins recorded an ad in Nashville recently aimed at decreasing the number of unnecessary 911 calls in and around Music City. In the ad, a 911 dispatcher’s voice cuts into his hit song, saying to Adkins: “We have a problem. Now people are calling 911 whenever they leave something turned on at home.” Tennessee radio listeners are then reminded to call a different number in non-life-threatening situations.
