FOX’S NEW COUNTRY MUSIC DRAMA SERIES, MONARCH, SET TO PREMIERE SEPTEMBER 11
Welcoming a new generation of pro football, MULTI-PLATINUM entertainer Trace Adkins performed live at the United States Football League (USFL) over the weekend to kick off its first-ever postseason. Taking the stage between the double-header playoff games, Adkins was part of USFL history with the Philadelphia Stars and Birmingham Stallions punching their tickets to the Championship Game on July 3 in Canton, Ohio.
Adkins performed several of his hits including his recently certified TRIPLE-PLATINUM good-time smash “Honky Tonk Badonkadonk” that aired LIVE on NBC at Tom Benson Hall of Fame Stadium. He also sat down with FOX & Friends to discuss the historic event.
A lifelong football fan, Adkins continues to build on the acclaim of his 25th anniversary album, THE WAY I WANNA GO (Verge Records), which includes single “Where The County Girls At” (feat. Luke Bryan and Pitbull) and was hailed as a “creative tour de force” by Billboard. Following his SOLD-OUT return to Nashville’s historic Ryman Auditorium on April 8, the Louisiana-born singer and actor has also released a fun-filled EP, HONKY TONK BADONKADONK: THE REMIXES, and is currently out on his headline THE WAY I WANNA GO TOUR, with dates scheduled through November.

ABOUT TRACE ADKINS:
In his 25-year career in Country music, Trace Adkins has sold over 11 MILLION albums, charted more than 20 singles, earned numerous awards, multiple GRAMMY nominations, and garnered over TWO BILLION streams. A Grand Ole Opry member for nearly two decades, the Louisiana native is known for his dynamic baritone and fiery, always-memorable live performances, and has expanded his Country career to include film and TV acting. He broke out in 1996 with his debut album, DREAMIN’ OUT LOUD, cracking the Top 5 of Billboard’s Hot Country Songs chart with “Every Light In the House Is On” and following with the #1 smash, “This Ain’t (No Thinkin’ Thing).” Since then, Adkins has pioneered a mix of classic Country minded traditionalism and adventurous, good-natured showmanship, breaking open new avenues in modern Country through fun-filled hits like “Honky Tonk Badonkadonk” and “Hillbilly Bone” (with Blake Shelton). He’s celebrating the 25th anniversary of his debut with 2021’s THE WAY I WANNA GO (Verge Records), a 25-song album that released to critical acclaim with Rolling Stone praising as “lighthearted club-ready fun…,” PEOPLE noting it’s “packed to the hilt with hits,” and Billboard applauding “a creative tour de force that serves up the lyrical and stylistic diversity that would make his hero [Ronnie] Milsap proud.” Mixing pure-Country reverence with standout collaborations featuring Blake Shelton, Melissa Etheridge, Snoop Dogg, Stevie Wonder on harmonica and more, the LP introduces Adkins’ latest single “Where The Country Girls At” (feat. Luke Bryan and Pitbull). Currently headlining THE WAY I WANNA GO TOUR, Adkins is also hosting Season 3 of Ultimate Cowboy Showdown on INSP and will star in FOX’s new country music drama series, MONARCH, set to premiere September 11.
