Trace Adkins Cruise Ship Fight Eyewitness Explains What Happened (Recap)


.
On Friday Trace Adkins Cruise Ship Fight Eyewitness Explains What Happened was a top story. Here is the recap: (Radio.com) Stories have been flying around for the last few days regarding an alleged fight between country star Trace Adkins and an unnamed Adkins 'impersonator," which supposedly took place during a Country Cruising event in the Caribbean this week.

According to Love & Theft's Stephen Barker Liles, a "confrontation" did occur, but no punches were thrown. Liles was a performer on the cruise with his bandmate Eric Gunderson; other performers included Wynonna, Montgomery Gentry, Craig Morgan and JT Hodges.

Liles was not just on the cruise, it turns out he was an eyewitness to the event, and he recounted what took place in an exclusive interview on CBS Sacramento's KNCI (a Radio.com station). He was just a few feet away when the incident happened, and seemed empathetic towards Adkins.

"You know, there's only so much you can take when someone's trying to be you," Liles told KNCI. "[Eventually] you're like, 'Ok bro', I've been doing this for 20 years, you've been following me around…and now you're going to come on this small cruise ship….'"

Rumors have been circulating as to what exactly happened between Adkins and the unnamed impersonator ever since the story surfaced Wednesday. Adkins had allegedly been drinking, after having been sober for 12 years, when he confronted the impersonator on the cruise ship.

Asked if there were any actual punches thrown, or any pushing or shoving, Liles said no, that Adkins "just confronted him" and "got up in his face." - He goes on to explain what may have sparked the confrontation.
