Trace Adkins

In Cruise Ship Brawl With Impersonator

1/15/2014 2:08 PM PST BY TMZ STAFF
EXCLUSIVE

0115-trace-facebookCountry singer Trace Adkins fought himself on a cruise ship Monday -- or at least he may have thought he was fighting himself -- because it seems Trace was really wasted and he just checked into rehab.

Sources tell TMZ ... Trace was headlining a country cruise headed to Jamaica.  He was in the bar when something happened between him and a Trace impersonator who was doing Karaoke. Trace -- who had been sober for 12 years -- had fallen off the wagon and got into a physical fight with the impersonator.

We're told once the boat docked in Jamaica ... Trace jumped ship.  We're told he's now in rehab. 

Trace and the impersonator in question previously met in 2007 (see video below).  The impersonator's wearing sunglasses.

God, I wish someone had the fight on tape!! Two burly men, Trace vs. Trace. Trace off-the sobriety wagon slurring his words. This would make a good reality show, huh?

First thing is why do you need an impersonator when you have the real guy on the ship? Secondly the impersonator really does not look like him unless you have a few strong drinks. Lastly Rednecks will be rednecks on land, sea or air.

Sorry, but it is NOT hard to tell them apart, the impersonator is ugly, looks nothing like Trace. Prayers out to Trace while in rehab.

Hilarious, one drink in 12 years and it turns into fighting with yourself on a cruise ship, that is why alcoholics can't drink

Remove the cowboy hat, facial hair and black tee shirt and they look absolutely nothing alike.
Of course, take away the cowboy hat and every Nashville singer looks like a nerd.

Responsible journalism is hard to come by these days. Radio station KNCI 105.1did a phone interview with another performer on the cruise who witnessed the incident and reported the following:
There was no "brawl" or altercation. The impersonator was actually signing autographs using Trace's name. Trace had been drinking and "confronted" the man about the fact he was signing autographs.

Why do people go on cruises? It's like a bus on water, but you can't get off. BORING! Dirty too!
