    Default Trace Adkins Goes to Rehab After Country Cruise Ship Scuffle With Impersonator

    This makes me sad.

    Trace Adkins Goes to Rehab After Country Cruise Ship Scuffle With Impersonator
    By Suzy Byrne

    PostsEmailBy Suzy Byrne | Our Country 8 hours ago

    Trace Adkins has suffered a setback in his battle with alcoholism. He had a big sea adventure he won't soon forget as much as he may want to.

    The singer was the headlining act on a country music-themed cruise that left Miami on Sunday and arrived in Ocho Rios, Jamaica, on Wednesday. Along the way, he reportedly clashed with a Trace Adkins impersonator, who was singing karaoke at a bar on the ship when things turned physical.

    Following the sea scuffle, Adkins who has battled alcohol addiction, but had been sober for a decade arrived in Jamaica and was quickly whisked off to rehab.

    "Trace has entered a treatment facility after a setback in his battle with alcoholism," his rep told Yahoo. "As he faces these issues head on, we ask that his family's privacy will be respected."

    The "Ladies Love Country Boys" singer has been candid about his battle with the bottle, sharing how his loved ones including his third wife, Rhonda, and his daughters staged an intervention for him in 2002 that saved his life.

    "Nine years ago, I had a very caring and responsible manager who forced me into an intervention situation," Adkins told Hollywood Reporter in 2011, around the time British singer Amy Winehouse died. "I went and did my month in rehab, and it worked for me. I've been sober for nine years now. It had gotten to a point in my life where it was probably going to take me down that road, too. If it didn't end up in that situation, it certainly was going to cost me my career and my manager saw that, and they cared enough about me to gather my friends and family and co-workers all together, and they put me through one of those gut-wrenching interventions."

    Of the intervention he said, "If you've ever been through one of those things, it's the most humiliating experience you'll ever have. To hear people you respect and love sit there and tell you the kind of pain you've been causing them. They tear you down completely then they haul you off to rehab. So I did that, and yeah, I'm an alcoholic. And are there enablers? There are, but I luckily had a group around me that finally put their foot down."

    And it seems that his loved ones came through for him again getting him help this time.

    I'm sorry it makes you sad and makes me laugh till I tinkle just a bit. I haven't even read the article yet. But the headline is stuff that dreams are made of. I don't even dislike the man and enjoy his music. Any name could have been there. It's just...PERFECT.

    I'm glad he is getting help and I wish him well.

    Oh Trace. Hope he can be strong and get better. And I also hope he can later laugh his ass off at the memory of it; IF he remembers. I too hope there is a video. Poor soul. He truly did beat himself up over the whole thing.

    I'm not judging, but is a "country music themed cruise" really the best place for a recovering alcoholic? That could make a saint fall off the wagon.

    I may keep my private area well groomed. I may buy expensive fancy panties to keep that area covered. But, at the end of the day, my inner cunt will always shine through.

    I know. It HAD to be an impersonator! Glad he's getting help now. At least he was honest back in 2011.

    I think he will get it back in line fast. He has too much to lose.

    Last time I saw him sing live on TV did not go well. I've seen him in concert and he is good. On the show he was flat and I thought he was just having a really bad day. Looks like a string of bad days...

    Not into country music, but I really liked him on Celebrity Apprentice. He seemed like a super serious straight shooter. I think if I had an impersonator following me all over I would have done far worse.
