Night of Knights 2017 artist Rodney Atkins

Rodney Atkins, has been signed to entertain at the Georgia Poultry Federation's 2017 Night of Knights on Saturday evening, August 26, at the Cobb Galleria Centre, Atlanta.

Rodney 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 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. And you can see it in the way he lives his life: putting family first, listening to that inner voice and remaining true to himself, and striving to evolve and find unique ways of expressing himself through the music he puts out into the world.

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 number one hits from his first three albums, from "Watching You" and "These Are My People" to his smash, "Farmer's Daughter," (which quickly skyrocketed to platinum). His single, "Take A Back Road" has propelled him to even bigger heights with its irresistibly catchy chorus and easygoing, windows-down, breezy summer vibe.

The songs on "Take A Back Road" are undeniably relatable --- from the sweetly honest battling couple who've drawn the lines down the middle of the bed in "Feet," to the fiercely parental pride-even-through-the-tough-times in "He's Mine," the tunes are chock full of emotions that any couple or family in modern-day America could identify with and find themselves experiencing, and for Rodney, that real emotion is what he strives for in each and every note.
