It looks like Trace Adkins fell off the wagon.
He recently performed a charity concert in New Jersey where fans say he was slurring his words and visibly intoxicated. Trace has been very open with his battle with alcohol. Back in 2014 he went to rehab after a drunken public brawl. Prior to that he had been sober 12 years. In a video posted by TMZ, you can see Trace slouched over on his bar stool trying to get through the songs. Many of the fans in attendance left the show early and expressed their disappointment on Facebook. One person wrote, “Seeing Trace Adkins totally inebriated on stage was painful to watch”. Trace even reportedly left earlier than expected.
Trace has since tried to make good by donating his performance fee back to the charity, which was St. Jude Children’s Research Hospital.
