There were eye witnesses to the incident on a cruise ship that led Trace Adkins to the breaking point just before he checked himself into Rehab.
According to Stephen Barker Liles from Love & Theft who was just a few feet away from the alleged fight, there were no punches thrown. It was a confrontation.
The impersonator was signing mock Trace autographs that looked an awful lot like the country superstar's penmanship. Liles indicated that there's only so much a person can take.
