Rodney Atkins Is Taking A Back Road Today

Rodney Atkins must be feeling pretty good these days. His fourth studio album “Take A Back Road” was released everywhere today. The album features the title track, a sixth career number one hit, holding the top spot for two weeks in both the United States and Canada. It was his second number one single in Canada. His single has sold over 600,000 copies at almost 40,000 a week. His album features tracks “Cabin In The Woods,” “He’s Mine,” and “Take A Back Road.” Rodney co-produced the album with Ted Hewitt.

To celebrate its release, Rodney is spending the day doing radio interviews from Wrigley Field in Chicago. He’ll throw some pitches for Chicago Cubs players later on in the day, and will mow the field with a Massey Ferguson tractor.

Rodney will be featured on GAC tv on October 12th with his own special on the channel. “Origins: Rodney Atkins” will explore the career of the Tennessee native and the stories behind the songs on his latest album. It will premiere at 10 pm EST on GAC.
