Trace Adkins: Kilmeade, “Such an Idiot”

Introducing a Trace Adkins’ segment, Fox & Friends co-host Brian Kilmeade said, “He’s capping it off [a banner year] on this just released CD ‘X.” Country music superstar and our only real friend in the industry Trace Adkins.” Adkins responded, “Kilmeade was absent when they had Roman numeral day: Such an idiot!” Abashedly laughing, Kilmeade replied, “Excuse me, Ten. Did you just call me an idiot?” Adkins just shook his head. As F&F co-anchor Steve Doocy tried to cover for Brian, a somewhat exasperated Adkins kiddingly began to get up and riposted, “To CNN.” At the end of the interview, explaining himself, Brian stated, “I just thought that it just happened to be ‘X’ as his tenth album.” Shaking his head again, Adkins answered, “Shut up, Kilmeade.”

    Oh wow. Brian got dissed by a reject from Hee Haw!

    Trace Adkins is far from being a Hee Haw reject, Boogie. Besides having a killer quick wit and high intellect, he is a very accomplished performer!!

    You oughta check him out….you are bound to be very impressed.

    That guy is a hoot… and he is impressive.

    I didn’t see this morning’s show, but I believe Kilmeade and Adkins have had speaking engagements together and wouldn’t be at all surprised to learn that those insulting jabs were prearranged. Getting guests to insult him has sort of been Brian Kilmeade’s schtick over the years and the funniest ones have been when the guest didn’t quite get the rehearsed insult right – those cheerleaders at one of the Superbowl games a few years ago, for example.

    Trace is great!!! And that segment was really funny. Brian was so totally out of the loop when he introduced the new CD as “X” and not “Ten” and I thought Trace’s comment about Kilmeade being out the day they covered Roman Numerals was an absolute hoot.

    Gotta love that Trace. And just what was wrong with Hee Haw? Seems to me it was one of the longest running shows on tv. I used to watch it—quite unashamedly!

    I thought Trace was very unprofessional and rude to Brian..

  9. Anonymous Says:

    I knew a fellow once that reminds me so much of Trace Adkins very big man but very serious about life and easily irritated and insulted when others could not understand why he would be insulted. Its as if his mind could not distinguish between serious exchanges of conversation and simple humerus fun . Oh yea I heard He ended up murdering his girlfriend then killing himself very disturbed man.
