Music has always been essential to who country star Trace Adkins is, and it will continue to be....even in rehab. According to a TMZ report dated Mon. Jan. 27, Adkins just purchased a guitar in Florida to write music as part of his treatment.

The 'Honky Tonk Badonkadonk' singer, who had been sober for 12 years, entered rehab earlier this month after an incident on a country music cruise. He was the scheduled headliner for the event that ran from Jan. 12-19. However, Adkins, who was under the influence of alcohol, confronted his impersonator, which prompted a public scene. After his family sat him down for an intervention, the singer immediately admitted to having a problem, and canceled his appearances. Once the ship docked in Jamaica, he departed for rehab in Florida.

Now, according to TMZ, his therapist has encouraged him to continue writing music during his stay - so that he may remain focused on positive things.

Apparently Trace agreed with his therapist, because subsequently, he made a purchase on Saturday. Rehab employees escorted him to a music store in Lake Worth, Florida. He picked out a used Martin guitar for $1,100. The store posted the picture to their Facebook page on Sat. Jan. 25.

While there hasn't been any official statements about how long the 52-year-old country star will remain in treatment, his fans are optimistic, and rooting for him. It is clear that he is focused on getting better, and that he isn't giving up music anytime soon.
