After reports that Trace Adkins entered rehab, last week, after a scuffle on a cruise he was hosting, some guests were upset, saying they had been lied to. Initially, the crew on the ship informed guests that Trace had to leave because of a family emergency. Trace's camp has done everything in their power - offering tickets and Meet and Greets to future shows, etc., but some are still upset.
Neal McCoy had stepped forward to support his friend, writing in a Facebook statement yesterday - "I understand some of the cruise guest being upset about not getting to see Trace perform, and maybe hanging with him on the ship. I do however think that sometimes things happen,,,, and everybody involved, in this case The Flying Dutchmen Travel folks and Trace's camp, tried to do the best they could to keep people happy, even if it meant fudging on the truth at first on the reason he left the ship."
