Adkins recently spoke to Fox News Digital about his starring role on the FOX TV drama “Monarch,” in which he stars alongside Susan Sarandon. 

“It was terrifying at first, but then very quickly I realized that she is so good, so professional, that she is going to carry the scene,” Adkins said on working with the accomplished actress. “You just try to hang on and make it to the buzzer, and she’ll take care of it.”

The ACM Honors ceremony will air on FOX on Tuesday, Sept. 13, at 8 p.m. ET.
