Adkins also spoke with Steve Doocy and Brian Kilmeade about the rough year he's had, which included losing his dad.

“Tough times don’t last. Tough people do,” Adkins said.

Kilmeade pointed out that tough times have been the inspiration for great country music over the years, and Adkins - who has released 12 albums during his prolific career - revealed he’s written new songs for his next album that are based on the past year.
