Rodney Atkins has been bringing Tennessee wisdom to country music lovers for the last decade. He is currently on tour to promote his fourth album, Take the Back Road, which promises to provide listeners with new things to think about as they move through life's journey. Atkins first attracted the attention of music producer Mike Curb in 1997. When his debut album, Honesty, finally did come out in 2002, the title track quickly rose to the top of the charts, hitting No. 4 on the country music charts and landing on Billboard's Top 100 within weeks. Since then, Atkins has released another three albums, all of which have quickly gained popularity.
Strengthened by his commitment to authenticity, his current concerts include new hits like "He's Mine," which is based on the contemplation of parenting a teenager. His songs demonstrate a commitment to family and other wholesome, traditional values. Atkins concerts tend to play before packed houses across the US that are ready to sing along to his simple lyrics and dance to his steady beats. He thrives on audience interaction and pays attention to his doting fans. At one recent concert, he made a star out of a five-year-old boy who wanted him to play "Watch Me" for his father in heaven, pulling him up on the stage and giving him guitar picks and a microphone to take home with him. It's no wonder that tickets to see Atkins are a hot commodity, and fans all over adore this honest country musician.
