It is a sad week for Trace Adkins and his family: The singer's father, Aaron Doyle Adkins, died Saturday at the age of 71. The younger Adkins, who had been in rehab for alcoholism since last month, left the treatment facility to be with his dad in his last moments.

Funeral services for the elder Adkins will be held Wednesday in Sarepta, La., where he was a lifelong area resident. He was married to wife Peggy for 53 years. According to the family's obituary, Trace and brother Clay will be two of the pallbearers.

Trace entered rehab Jan. 15 after a scuffle with an impersonator on a country music-themed cruise of the Caribbean. He was reportedly given a green light from the facility to attend to his ailing father.
