CURB/NASHVILLE artist RODNEY ATKINS recently received the key to the city of his hometown of HARROGATE, TN and spent some time with the children of the HOLSTON CHILDREN’S HOME, the home that ATKINS supports and where he lived until his adoption. HARROGATE Mayor BILL FULTZ presented ATKINS the key to the city during a GAC taping for RODNEY’s “Origins” special. The presentation included local residents, city officials and family.
“This is such an honor for me,” said ATKINS. “I will always be thankful for my upbringing and the opportunities my parents and this town afforded me. I will always remember the creek bed fishing, the long days at the ball park, as well as the hard knocks, but this town keeps a strong hold on my heart and I am honored to be holding the key to this city.”
ATKINS is also shooting his video this week for his single “Take A Back Road” with TV and film director ANDY TENNANT around the MIDDLE TENNESSEE area. ATKINS will be the lead in the video which is based on WIM WENDER’s “Wings of Desire.”
