Update on Trace Adkins : Love & Theft’s Stephen Barker Liles has pretty much confirmed in a new interview … Trace had gotten angry at Michael Larsen, a Trace impersonator, for shadowing him for so long and following him to the cruise. Stephen also said that the guy had started signing autographs with Trace’s name. Thankfully he says no punches were thrown between the two men.
As you’ve probably heard by now, Trace Adkins’ cruise this week ended up being anything but smooth sailing and Trace has since checked himself into rehab for alcohol.
Trace was asked to leave the ship and didn’t just leave because he felt the need to head to rehab.
Larsen has been following Trace around for quite a while, using his looks to try and establish himself as a Trace Adkins impersonator. – See more at: Nashville Gab

Taylor tells Teen Vogue.
It’s that philosophy that keeps Taylor tweeting only once a week or so.
“I don’t want to seem like I always have my phone out looking for the next thing to upload,” she says. Besides, Taylor

and you’d be depressed for me!”
