OFFSTAGE: Trace Adkins Would’ve Killed bin Laden Himself

(CMT Offstage keeps a 24/7 watch on everything that’s happening with country music artists behind the scenes and out of the spotlight.)

Trace Adkins told CMT Radio exactly what he would’ve done with Osama bin Laden had he been in charge of the military operation that killed the terrorist. “Somebody asked me about it and I said the only way I could be happier would have been if I had killed him myself,” he said. And I think a lot of people feel exactly the same way, that we would’ve gladly been part of the of the elite Team Six of the Navy SEALS who actually brought bin Laden down. What Adkins doesn’t agree with, though, is how they disposed of the body. “I don’t think they should’ve dumped him in the ocean either. I’d have brought his head back to Washington D.C. and stuck it on a pike in the front yard of the White House. That’s what I’d have done with it.” I’m sure he’s kidding. Or at least half-kidding.
