TRACE ADKINS TALKS ABOUT SUBSTANCE ABUSE

Last year, family and friends of Trace Adkins, worried about his alcohol intake, organized an intervention.

Trace says that the intervention was organized by his wife Rhonda and that it really helped to open his eyes.

"Some people near and dear to me sat me down and just laid it all out for me," says Trace. "Once they get started you can't stop 'em. And it was heartbreaking … shameful. It was a life-changing experience for sure."

Trace was in a rehab facility for about a month, and he's now admitting that: "Every scar I've got on my body and every vehicle I've wrecked, there's an alcohol-related part to it."
