Trace Adkins Rehab: Country Singer Admitted After Crazy Cruise Fight with Impersonator
In more "country hillbillies acting like country hillbillies" news, country music star Trace Adkins has entered rehab after getting into an admittedly-hilarious scuffle on a cruise ship with a Trace Adkins impersonator.
While it should be news that there's a Trace Adkins impersonator in the first place, there's obviously more to the story than this. According to CBS News, the fracas occurred on the Country Cruising cruise that goes around stops in Jamaica, Mexico, and the Cayman Islands. Adkins' publicist confirmed to CBS that the Celebrity Apprentice winner entered rehab because he drank too much alcohol during the cruise, and has cancelled the remainder of his appearances during the cruise.
Now, of course, if this were a rapper caught getting drunk and belligerent with anyone -- much less an impersonator -- he would be cuffed and charged within seconds. But let a hillbilly entertainer do the same thing, and he gets treated to rehab. Must be nice.
Nevertheless, according to Yahoo, Adkins had been sober for over a decade before he fell off the wagon this time around. "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."
