Trace Adkins [2] entered a rehabilitation facility to seek treatment [3] for alcohol abuse last week following an altercation with a Trace Adkins impersonator while aboard the Country Cruising cruise ship. Several country stars were also on board, including Love and Theft’s [4] Stephen Barker Liles, who witnessed the altercation. He gave a firsthand account to KNCI’s Pat and Tom Morning Show [5], saying Trace’s breaking point came when the impersonator signed autographs as Trace.

“You know, there’s only so much you can take when someone’s trying to be you,” he said. “(Eventually) you’re like, ‘Ok bro’, I’ve been doing this for 20 years, you’ve been following me around…and now you’re going to come on this small cruise ship…’”

Stephen confirmed there were no actual punches thrown and even admitted to feeling bad for the impersonator, who was confronted by his idol in front of a crowd of people. Trace gave up alcohol 12 years ago following an intervention from family and friends. As soon as the boat docked, Trace left the ship and checked himself into rehab to seek help.
