The new FOX country music drama Monarch features Trace Adkins and Susan Sarandon in the lead roles. Lots of stars are going to make guest appearances on the show, including Shania Twain, Martina McBride, Little Big Town and Tanya Tucker. When Trace was asked who else he would like on the show, he mentioned Blake Shelton and he even has the role picked out for him. "I think we should bring Blake Shelton, let him play my stupid younger brother," Trace joked. "That's kind of what he is anyway." They have worked together several times in the past, including collaborations on "If I Was A Woman" from Trace's 2021 album The Way I Wanna Go, "Hell Right" from Blake's Fully Loaded: God's Country and their massive hit from 2009 "Hillbilly Bone." That song won the ACM for Vocal Event of the Year in 2010. Monarch debuted on September 11th and airs Tuesdays at 9 on FOX.
