Adkins was a self taught one man band, the reason for this was because when he first heard Hank Williams on the radio he didn't know there was a band behind Hank. He thought that Hank Williams played all the instruments. He claimed a repertoire of over 9000 songs including over 7000 original compositions. Recurring themes in Adkins' work include love, heartbreak, hunchin', police, death, decapitation, commodity meat, aliens, and chicken. His music has a shared appreciation by the likes of The Cramps and John Zorn.
