Trace Adkins

Confronts Impersonator

Take Off That F**king Hat! [PHOTOS]

0120_trace_adkins_impersonator_photos_launchTrace Adkins played a drunken game of country chest bump with his impersonator ... after ordering the guy to take off his f**king hat.

TMZ got a hold of photos from the Jamaica-bound cruise ship where Trace went nuclear on his look-alike, Michael Larsen.

Witnesses tell us ... Trace had been in the bar pounding shots ... and when he saw the impersonator he made a beeline for him.

Trace felt for a long time ... the impersonator had become like a stalker, following him around the country.  So when the singer saw the guy on the ship, it was the straw that broke the camel's back.

We're told Adkins screamed, "This has gone on long enough ... Take the f**king hat off."  Larsen obliged -- taking off his hat and standing there silently while Trace yelled in his face ... but it was strictly a verbal attack ... no punches were thrown.

The hat has significance ... it's the moniker of a country star.

The woman in the back must be a country star according to TMZ. She's wearing a cowboy hat too.

No wonder Trace is creeped out... He should have filed a restraining order against the guy though rather that playing the redneck bar fight card.

Who gave you these pictures??? I guess the same person that is feeding you all this B.S.!!!! If I was Trace I would have knocked the hell out of that guy for signing autographs in my name!! Leave him alone. This is a family issue not all of the public!!!! I will always be a fan of Trace Adkins ♥♥

I would be wierded out too, some person following me around, impersonating me. If he wasn't stalking, my opinion would differ.

Having been on the cruise last year and talking with them both this was an alcohol fueled event. They have met each other very often before and Trace had nothing nice to say about mike.
