NASHVILLE, Tenn. (CBSMiami/AP) — Country singer Trace Adkins is back in rehab following in incident on board a cruise heading out of Miami.

Adkins’ publicist has confirmed the singer entered rehab after consuming alcohol during the Country Cruising cruise.

According to TMZ, Adkins found himself intoxicated in an onboard bar when he got into a physical altercation with a Trace Adkins impersonator who’d been singing karaoke.

Adkins, who had been sober for more than a decade, canceled the remainder of his performances during the weeklong cruise and when the ship arrived at its first destination, Ocho Rios, Jamaica, Adkins got off.

The 52-year-old baritone “has entered a treatment facility after a setback in his battle with alcoholism,” his representative told several media outlets in a statement.

Montgomery Gentry, Wynonna & the Big Noise and Love and Theft were among the other acts performing aboard the NCL Pearl with Adkins.
