After 12 years of sobriety, Trace Adkins has returned to rehab for alcohol abuse. Country Weekly and TMZ have both reported that Trace was part of Country Cruising and had a relapse.
Country Cruising is a country cruise that left Miami for Ocho Rios, Jamaica, Georgetown, Grand Cayman and Cozumel, Mexico. Montgomery Gentry, Wynonna, Neal McCoy, Love & Left, Craig Morgan, and Lonestar were all aboard the cruise.
A spokesperson for Trace confirmed the Louisiana native’s exit from the cruise and provided this statement: “Trace has entered a treatment facility after a setback in his battle with alcoholism. As he faces these issues head-on, we ask that his family’s privacy will be respected.”
TMZ also has sources saying that Trace got in a physical fight with a Trace Adkins impersonator who was doing karaoke. Once the boat was docked in Jamaica, the sources say Trace left the ship.
Edwards & Lee are praying for Trace, a super nice guy:
