Rodney Atkins goes to platinum

Monday, March 26, 2007 – Rodney Atkins may have thought he went to hell with "If You're Going Through Hell," but he actually went platinum, signifying sales of more than 1 million units. Atkins enjoyed two back to back multiple week number one singles, two ACM nominations and an RIAA certified Platinum Album.

The title track was at the top for four weeks and Billboard's most-played country song for the year. The second single off the chart-topping album, "Watching You," spent five weeks at number one on the country charts. The third single is "These Are My People."

Atkins will hit the road with Martina McBride in April and later this summer, join Brad Paisley on tour.

There are songs about hanging out on back roads away from the hustle of daily life, getting fatherly ...
CD review - It's America When you've recorded Billboard's number 1 country song of 2006 (If You're Going Through Hell) and 2007 (Watching You), what do you do for an encore? Rodney Atkins is here to tell us: you don't mess with the recipe. As usual, the hook-seeking guitar licks lead the pop country charge, with the occasional appearance of fiddles and banjos for seasoning. Atkins tapped into the services of an army of writers for the 11 songs, including 3 he helped write. ...
