John Rich was deemed too drunk to sit down and enjoy the ride.
The country star was flying to Nashville after a stint in Las Vegas.
After getting in a fight with a passenger before getting on the plane, Rich continued to show drunken behavior once onboard.
Crew members came up to Rich and deemed him unfit to make the trip.
Under federal aviation regulations, the crew escorted Rich off the plane.
Reports say Rich cooperated calmly.
Southwest reps confirmed a passenger was kicked off but would not release any names.
The "passenger" was refunded and chose other flight plans.
