Trace Adkins is the latest artist to cancel an upcoming appearance at SeaWorld in Orlando due to the allegations of orca abuse at the park, leveled in the documentary Blackfish

A rep for Trace says, "Trace prefers that the focus of his performances be on music, not on controversy. Therefore, he has decided not to proceed with this show in the midst of this debate.”

Willie Nelson , Martina McBride and Trisha Yearwood are among the other stars in recent weeks who have cancelled concerts at SeaWorld's upcoming Bands, Brews & BBQ event. The park plans to begin the weekend concert series February 1, 2014, despite the cancellations.
