Emerging from a series of personal setbacks, Trace Adkins is returning to the road with a new tour that launches June 5 in in Sayreville, N.J.

"I'm excited, recharged and ready to get back on the road," Adkins said in announcing the tour dates on Wednesday (May 28). "I owe a debt of gratitude to everyone for the outpouring of encouragement and support over the past few months. It's hard to put into words how much comfort you take from hearing, 'We've got your back.' So these shows are for you guys. Thanks."

Adkins entered an alcohol treatment facility in Florida on Jan. 15 following a verbal altercation with a fan on a country music-themed cruise in the Caribbean. The fan was impersonating the singer and reportedly even signing autographs on the ship.

Adkins sang with the band Exile on the Grand Ole Opry on March 11, marking his first public performance since leaving rehab. Rhonda Adkins, his wife of 16 years, filed for divorce later that month on grounds of "irreconcilable differences."

In early May, Adkins attended the Hollywood premiere of Moms Night Out, a family-friendly film which features him as "Bones," a tattoo artist and biker. The film also stars Sean Astin, Sarah Drew and Patricia Heaton. Later in May, Adkins traveled to New York City to kick off Macy's "American Icons" campaign in support of Got Your 6, an organization focused on veterans and military families.

With a catalog of hits including "(This Ain't) No Thinkin' Thing," "Ladies Love Country Boys" and "You're Gonna Miss This," Adkins gained mainstream media attention on NBC's Celebrity Apprentice.

A native of Sarepta, La., Adkins will be touring this summer with his six-piece band, the Sarepta Gentleman's Club.
