Rodney Atkins tickets on sale now for July 18, 2024 concert

Rodney Atkins

Get your boots ready Fair fans! Rodney Atkins, one of Country Music’s biggest stars, will take the Miller Lite Main Stage Thursday, July 18th at 8pm. He has reached such heights as being named the Top New Male Vocalist at the ACM Awards, and seeing his single “Watching You” become the Number One Song of the Decade, according to Country Aircheck, and earn the songwriter a BMI “Million-Air” Award.

The RIAA Platinum-selling artist’s current solo studio album, Caught Up in the Country, reveals an artist who is confident enough to know that making your best music can require patience and experimentation. The results are his most daring collection so far, touching on emotions and sounds which continue to expand his range—from the twangy celebration of the album’s title track (featuring the roof-raising vocals of The Fisk Jubilee Singers) to the slow-burn cover of Jason Isbell’s “Cover Me Up.”

With six Number One singles, eight Top 5 singles, and 3.8 billion career streams under his belt, Atkins continues to be recognized as one of the most powerful voices in Country Music. Atkins was the second most-played male artist of the decade overall. He has also sold over 11.4 million units and earned ten career Gold, Platinum and Multi-Platinum RIAA certifications to date. His latest Gold-certified single, “Caught Up In The Country (feat. The Fisk Jubilee Singers),” set the record for longest-running single (at the time) in Billboard Country Airplay history at 57 weeks. Atkins has performed on NBC’s TODAY Show, GMA’s Strahan & Sara, and FOX & Friends.

We’ll be “Watching You” as everyone will get “Caught Up In The Country” at this electrifying show!
