Adkins just recently left the rehab facility where he was checked into to be by his ailing father's side. Trace's wife, Rhonda, posted a message on Twitter yesterday thanking everyone for their support during this difficult time. Trace had checked into the treatment center more than two weeks ago after having a setback in his longtime battle with alcoholism.
Dierks Bentley will give fans a glimpse into his life like he never has before with a new documentary film titled Dierks Bentley: Riser. The new film will document the ups and downs in the singer's life following the death of his father and the birth of his first son - the story that inspired his upcoming seventh studio album by the same name. Dierks' two main loves are on display in this new film as it shows how the singer is torn between a life on the road performing for his fans and a life raising his children at home. Fans can preview a special edit of the film exclusively on CMT on February 22 at 2:00 PM ET, and the full length will premiere the same day on Palladia at 9:00 PM ET. Then, Dierks' upcoming album, Riser, will be released on February 25. To celebrate both the new album and film, Bentley will host screenings over the course of the next few weeks in London, Los Angeles, Nashville, New York and Toronto.
During Taylor Swift's concert at the O2 Arena in London on Saturday, a male fan managed to breach security and get up on the stage. The incident happened just as Swift was finishing up the show with her hit song "We Are Never Getting Back Together." The fan ran across the stage and made his way up a set of stairs to where Taylor was. Swift looked a little bewildered when the fan first reached her, but handled the situation like a pro by smiling and shaking his hand. The fan then passed the singer what appeared to be a note before security guards quickly got to him and took him away. The concert was the first of the singer's five planned shows at The O2 venue in London. She will also be taking the "Red Tour" to Berlin on February 7. (Photo credit: Daily Mail)
