TRACE ADKINS’ battle with the bottle took another bad turn last week when he showed up drunk at a concert.
According to several reports, he was slurring his words, couldn’t finish his set, and even stumbled off the stage. He was such a mess that fans were leaving early. It was especially upsetting because there were a lot of kids in the crowd.
TMZ.com has video of Trace from the show. He’s sitting on a stool and putting serious weight on the mic stand. His cowboy hat is covering his eyes and he seems to be missing every other word to the song.
There’s been no public statement from Trace, or his people . . . but he did donate his performance fee back to the charity.
