Country singer Trace Adkins has checked himself into a treatment facility after being sober for over 10 years.

According to reports, the 52-year-old singer supposedly took his first drink in over 12 years while on the Country Cruising cruise that began on Sunday. The cruise also features Montgomery Gentry, Wynonna Judd, Neal McCoy and Craig Morgan and was scheduled to stop in Cozumel, Jamaica and the Grand Cayman Islands. All of Adkins’ performances on the ship have been canceled.

Several reports state that Adkins was involved in a fight with an impersonator who was doing karaoke onboard the cruise. Their argument turned physical and when the cruise ship docked in Jamaica, Adkins left the cruise.

A spokesperson for the singer has confirmed that he has checked himself into a treatment facility.

“As he faces these issues head-on, we ask that his family’s privacy will be respected,” his spokesperson told Country Weekly.

In December 2002, Adkins completed a 28-day alcohol rehabilitation program at the Cumberland Heights Alcohol and Drug Treatment Center near Nashville. At the time he said it was a positive experience and something he needed to do for himself, his family and his career. One year earlier, he pleaded guilty to DUI charges.
