Country music superstar Trace Adkins announced Thursday that hes’ backing out of a concert at SeaWorld Orlando.

That makes him the latest in a long list of musicians who have bailed due to the controversy surrounding the documentary Blackfish.

“Trace prefers that the focus of his performances be on music, not on controversy. Therefore, he has decided not to proceed with this show in the midst of this debate,” Adkins' rep tells CNN.

The All-Star Celebrity Apprentice winner is at least the ninth act to just say no to Bands, Brew & BBQ, a six-week concert series. Others are The Barenaked Ladies, Willie Nelson, Cheap Trick and Trisha Yearwood.
