Rodney Atkins


Location: Pfeiffer Hall at North Central College, Naperville, IL 60540
Start Date/Time: May 14, 2016 - 8 p.m.
End Date/Time: May 14, 2016 – 10 p.m.

Rodney Atkins knows the value of taking the long way home, of veering off the beaten path onto that road less traveled once in a while. You can hear it in his music, in the lyrics of his smash new single, “Take A Back Road,” a song that celebrates that feeling of getting away from the noise of everyday life, really living in the moment and getting right with your soul. The East Tennessee native has an impressive track record with hitting on sentiments that strike a chord with the country listener: he’s had five No. 1 hits from his first three albums, from “Watching You” and “These Are My People” to his most recent smash, “Farmer’s Daughter,” which quickly earned platinum status. And, he’s sold more than 4 million singles in the past five years alone. His new single is on course to propel him to even bigger heights with its irresistibly catchy chorus and easygoing, windows-down, breezy summer vibe. Though his new crop of songs has some edge and the vocal energy may be amped up a notch, Atkins is still the same, hard-working, patriotic, rock-solid country boy fans have grown to know and love since his debut with 2003’s “Honesty.” 8 p.m. at North Central College’s Pfeiffer Hall.
