Atkins tops tornado relief show

Thursday, May 26, 2011 – Rodney Atkins will headline "Music City Gives Back" on June 7 in downtown Nashville, a tornado relief concert.

Josh Thompson, Thompson Square and others will join Atkins for a night dedicated to raising awareness, accept donations of needed items and raise funds for tornado victims for the American Red Cross Relief Fund through donation collection locations around the event. The concert is open to the public and will be held between 2nd and 4th Avenue beginning at 7 p.m. The public can make donations at the event or by visiting www.redcross.org.

"It is important for us to give to all of those in need," Atkins said. "As an artist, I have performed in just about every town that has been hit by the many storms, and I feel that this concert is a great way to reach out and help as many people as we can. I know that a lot of people from all over the world will be hitting the streets during this week, and we wanted to kick off a week of music with a direction that will call people to action to continue to support the American Red Cross Disaster Relief Fund in any way that they can."

CD review - Take a Back Road Rodney Atkins' breakthrough album, "If You're Going Through Hell," produced the top singles of both 2006 and 2007. His moment in the spotlight was brief, with his follow-up album,"It's America," being largely ignored except for the title track. From the get go on "Take a Back Road," Atkins comes across as a regular guy, not a detached superstar. 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. ...
