Trace Adkins' father has died only days after the country crooner left rehab early to be by his side.
The 52-year-old cut short his treatment for alcoholism after learning his father was seriously ill. Adkins rushed to Louisiana from Florida just in time to see him in his final hours.
The singer's wife of 16 years, Rhonda, shared her gratitude for the outpouring of support from fans, writing on Facebook, "Thank you for all your love, prayers and support."
She later added, “Sometimes we don’t know where our journey will take us but I know he has a plan.”
Adkins originally checked himself into a rehab facility last month after getting into a heated confrontation with a Trace impersonator on a cruise ship bound for Jamaica.
“Trace has entered a treatment facility after a setback in his battle with alcoholism, his rep told the Daily News at the time. "As he faces these issues head-on, we ask that his family’s privacy will be respected.”
The "Ladies Love Country Boys" singer had been sober 12 years before falling off the wagon. His last stint in rehab took place in 2002 after he was involved in a tractor accident.
The "Celebrity Apprentice" winner was very open about his treatment, telling CMT in 2003, “The program was an extremely positive experience for me. This is something I needed to do for myself, my family and my career. I feel the best I’ve felt in years, both physically and mentally.”
There is no word yet on whether the musician will return to the facility after his father's funeral.
TMZ was the first to report Adkins' father's death and his departure from rehab.
