In recent years, Adkins has performed for military men and women across 12 USO Tours. In his 2007 autobiography, “A Personal Stand: Observations and Opinions from a Freethinking Roughneck,” the former oil-rigger recounted his rise to fame, brushes with death, and battles with personal demons. Adkins has played a tough as nails biker in “The Lincoln Lawyer” (starring Matthew McConaughey) and a wise oracle of a tattoo artist in the family-friendly film “Moms’ Night Out” (starring Patricia Heaton, Sean Astin, and Sarah Drew). He also developed and hosted GAC’s “Great American Heroes,” honoring everyday heroes.

Adkins has also served as a panelist on “Hollywood Squares” and “Pyramid,” as the voice for Elvin on “King of the Hill,” and in voice-overs for various television commercials.
