Posted on: January 27th, 2014 by Chris

The most powerful songs are the ones that come from life and maybe that’s what Trace Adkins is up to as he left alcohol rehab to buy a new guitar over the weekend.

He visited Chafin Musicenter in Lake Worth, FL, as evidence of this picture posted on their Facebook page Saturday. TMZ reports he was escorted to the store by employees of the rehabcenter.

Two weeks ago Trace was involved in an altercation with an impersonator on a cruise ship. He admitted to falling off the wagon after more than 10 years sober, which prompted him to exit the cruise in Jamaica and get help.
