There's been a lot of talk about the Trace Adkins cruise ship fight that sent him to rehab. Stephen Barber Liles of Love & Theft was there and set the record straight about what really happened.  There were NO punches thrown, just a heated argument and now TMZ has the pictures to prove it.

Post by TMZ.

Liles says Adkins confronted the impersonator after he started signing Trace's autograph for fans. Trace is believed to have been drinking when the argument began. He had been on the wagon for 12 years. Trace checked himself into rehab as soon as the boat docked. We hope he gets the help he needs. We also hope the impersonator thanks his lucky stars Trace only 'got in his face.' He's one guy I'd never want to make mad.
