Trace Adkins Among Country Stars Trapped in New York City During Hurricane Sandy
Hurricane Sandy crashed into the east coast on Monday night, and Trace Adkins was among a handful of country singers trying to stay safe in the Big Apple. Chely Wright and Billy Ray Cyrus also took to Twitter to describe what was happening as the 100-year storm flooded the New Jersey and New York coastline.
Adkins and his wife Rhonda both monitored a popular crane that was toppled Monday afternoon, as pictured. Rhonda remained active until midnight ET, when she said, “Power outages, flooding, exploding electrical plants around us but we remain safe.”
The ‘Tough People Do’ singer is in New York City filming the upcoming season of ‘Celebrity Apprentice.’ Cyrus, who is also in New York City, is there to appear on talk shows in support of his new ‘Change My Mind’ album, which hit stores last week. He too tweeted about the crane that dangled over a busy Manhattan intersection. Tuesday morning, he let fans know he was safe.
“Hey everybody wanted to let you know I’m safe and sound but many others not so lucky,” Cyrus shared. “Please keep those in need in your thoughts and prayers.”
Chely Wright kept fans updated with up-to-the-minute tweets about the storm from her perspective, including details of power outages, hospital reports and a frightening picture of New York City gone dark. She lives along the east coast with her wife, Lauren Blitzer.
