Riverside, Iowa (April 25, 2015) – Tennessee native Rodney Atkins brought a little more Nashville good-guy country to Riverside. On the heels of a recent “Greatest Hits” album release, the singer/songwriter performed many of his number-one singles including “Cleaning This Gun (Come on in Boy)”, “It’s America”, “Take a Back Road” and “Eat Sleep Love You Repeat” to name just a few. Hats were tipped, boots tapped, and beers shared by the enthusiastic crowd that filled the event center of the casino. All were pleasantly entertained.
Through the course of the night, it became obvious how Rodney was named Top New Male Vocalist by the Academy of Country Music back in ’06 and nominated for Top Male Vocalist along with Song, Album and Video of the Year nominations as his career continues… This guy can sing country. Rodney has a rich and honest voice. Real-folk farmer country, not so much that bro-country bullshit. It appealed a bit to my own small town roots.
