Trace Adkins was drunk while performing at a fundraiser for the St. Jude Children’s Research Hospital, a new report claims.
The 54-year-old country crooner was slurring his words during his three song-performance in New Jersey Wednesday night, and it was so bad, apparently, that the audience beelined for the exit. (RELATED: Lisa Marie Presley Files For Divorce After 10 Years Of Marriage)
“You couldn’t hear him except for him mumbling,” one concertgoer said. “My girlfriend said I think he’s drunk or something and everyone was picking up their chairs and leaving.”
Adkins made up for what happened when he donated his performance fee to St. Jude’s, TMZ reported Friday. (RELATED: This Huge Country Star Just Revealed The Republican She’s Supporting For President)
In 2014, Adkins checked himself into a rehabilitation facility for alcohol abuse after he brawled with a Trace Adkins impersonator who was singing karaoke on a cruise ship.
