Rodney Atkins, a country music artist with six No. 1 hits, hails from east Tennessee. His debut single, “In a Heartbeat,” came out in 1997 and was No. 74 on the Billboard chart; it appeared on the soundtrack of the 2008 film “Camille.” His first album, “Honesty,” released in 2003, included the No. 4 hit, “Honesty (Write Me a List).” His second album, “If You’re Going Through Hell,” released in 2006, won him Top New Male Vocalist from the Academy of Country Music and netted four top singles: the title track, “Watching You,” “These Are My People” and “Cleaning This Gun (Come On In Boy).” “If You’re Going Through Hell” was nominated for Album of the Year and the same-named single was nominated for Song of the Year. The album has been certified platinum in the United States.
Atkins’ most recent albums, “It’s America,” released in 2009, and “Take a Back Road,” released in 2011, earned him his fifth and sixth No. 1 hits in the title songs from each of the albums. His current tour schedule lists 19 venues between now and his performance in Shelby.
