Trace Adkins, like the rest of us, is hooked on TV. He grew up watching 'Gunsmoke,' but he says reality TV is by far his favorite, and that's why he decided to go on 'Celebrity Apprentice' in 2008. But the country star tells TV Guide there is one starring role still on his wish list: to be on 'Eastbound and Down.'
"It's funny as hell," Adkins admits. Two other favorites shows of his are 'America's Funniest Home Videos' -- "because I love to laugh with my kids" -- and a show that was canceled last year, 'Survivorman.'
Reality TV aside, Adkins tunes in to ESPN frequently to watch SportsCenter, especially in the fall, saying "[I watch it] during football season. I love football."
In 2004, Adkins made his own television acting debut in an episode of 'Yes, Dear.' A few years after that he guest starred on Jeff Foxworthy's TV show, 'Big Night Out.' He even appeared on 'The Young and the Restless' playing himself one time.
There is one more show that is often on the 'Brown Chicken, Brown Cow' country star's TiVo list: A&E's 'Billy the Exterminator.' Adkins feels close to that one because "'Billy the Exterminator' is shot in my hometown, Shreveport, La."
Adkins can next be seen on the big screen in 'The Lincoln Lawyer' with Matthew McConaughey, Marisa Tomei and Ryan Phillippe, out on March 18.
