Fox News had a story that I saw this morning that I really hope isn’t true.
Country singer Trace Adkins was reportedly drunk at a charity performance Wednesday night in New Jersey.
According to video obtained by TMZ, (which you can watch above) the “Lit” singer appears to slur his way through three songs at the fundraiser for St. Jude Children’s Research Hospital. The performance was seemingly so bad, concertgoers reportedly left before the end of the show.
A rep for the singer did not return FOX411 Country’s request for comment.
Also, according to the story, Trace was the headliner for a radio station show in New Jersey recently. Attendees of that show say he appeared drunk and in no condition to perform. And, just like the performance at the St. Jude Fundraiser, people left early because the show was so bad.
Trace has been a friend of the radio station for a long time and his issues with alcohol have been well documented. Most recently in 2014, when he was drunkenly fighting with an impersonator when he was on a cruise ship, ultimately with him ending up in a rehab facility here in South Florida.
We all send our best to Trace and hope that he can once again overcome his demons and continue to be the great performer and pillar in the community we all know he can be.
