Trace Adkins Ruffles Feathers With Confederate Flag Earpiece

He’s a southern boy at heart, so when Trace Adkins took the stage at last night’s (November 28) Rockefeller Center Tree Lighting Ceremony, he saw nothing wrong with wearing a Confederate flag design on his earpiece.

The 50-year-old country singer sparked controversy due to his in-ear monitor and folks all over the country took to Twitter to share their responses.

And as Adkins fans know, he’s a member of the Sons of Confederate Veterans organization and has always been proud of his heritage.

Still, some folks consider the Confederate flag to be a racist symbol so perhaps Trace could have found a less offensive earpiece to show his patriotic spirit.
