Rodney Atkins is as authentic as they come. Whether he’s taking in a baseball game with son Elijah or entertaining thousands of fans with one of his many mega-hits, Atkins expresses a refreshing simplicity and sincerity that reflects the values he holds so dear: Putting family first, making the most of what you have, and staying true to yourself in a rapidly-changing world.
With his new single “Doin’ It Right,” which impacted radio stations nationwide in October, Rodney Atkins celebrates life’s unexpected turns and uncertainties as the true stepping stones of success. The song is the first release from Atkins’ fifth studio album on Curb Records, due in stores early next year. His most recent album, Take A Back Road (produced by Ted Hewitt), yielded Atkins’ sixth career No. 1 hit and fastest-rising single to date with the title track. “Take A Back Road,” written by Luke Laird and Rhett Akins, was also named Song of the Year at the 2012 BMI Awards and marked Rodney’s third Song of the Year win — “Watching You” (2007 / Brian White) and “If You’re Going Through Hell” (2006 / Sam and Annie Tate) also earned the title.
When he’s not in the studio working on new music, Rodney is working hard out on the road, connecting with loyal fans in cities across the country. He joined multi-platinum artist Darius Rucker for the True Believers Tour this past summer and hosted the Third Annual “Music City Gives Back” concert in downtown Nashville on June 4, 2013, raising funds for Oklahoma tornado relief following the devastating storms that affected Moore, Shawnee and other Oklahoma communities. Atkins was joined by friends and fellow performers Jana Kramer, Justin Moore and Josh Thompson for the event.
In addition to the benefit concert, Rodney also hosted the inaugural “Rodney Atkins’ America’s Heroes Celebration” on Jekyll Island, GA the weekend of August 16 – 18. The military appreciation weekend included a beach party, festival games, family activities and live music capped off with Rodney’s show on Sunday night, dedicated to active duty and veterans of all military branches. Atkins is an avid supporter of America’s troops, having also completed his first-ever USO Tour through some of the most remote bases in Kuwait and Afghanistan in early 2012.
