Fathers

Rodney Atkins was born in Knoxville, Tennessee. His biological mother, who was 19 at the time, became pregnant with him after a “traumatic first date”. She hid the pregnancy from her parents and put him up for adoption at the Holston United Methodist Home for Children in Greeneville, Tennessee. His first adoptive parents, Charles Hutchins and Linda Weems, returned him to the home after he developed a major respiratory infection. Allan and Margaret Atkins, who had lost a newborn about a year prior, inquired after the child, but decided not to proceed due to surgery that Margaret had just undergone. Meanwhile, another couple adopted him, but also returned him soon after when he developed colic. After his mother, Margaret Atkins, recovered, she proceeded to adopt him. Atkins did not meet his biological mother until 2008, and has never revealed her identity.

Atkins’s thirteenth single, “It’s America”, was released in November 2008. It was the first single from his third album, It’s America, released in March 2009. Atkins promoted the album through appearances on Larry King Live and a pre-sale promotion on his website. On the chart dated May 2, 2009, “It’s America” became his fifth number 1 hit. Its followup, “15 Minutes”, was released in May 2009 and peaked at number 20 in September. Atkins re-wrote the album’s third single, “Chasin’ Girls”, for his wife to make it more applicable to their life at the time. After executives at Curb saw the lyrics, the re-written version was released as the album’s third single, but did not make top 40. “Farmer’s Daughter” followed in early 2010, and after it reached top 5 late in the year, Curb added it and the re-recording of “Chasin’ Girls” to a re-issue of It’s America. The label also re-released If You’re Going Through Hell for exclusive sale at Cracker Barrel restaurants, with “Farmer’s Daughter” and the previously-unreleased song “More Like Your Memory (Always Takes Me Back)” added to the track listing.

“Take a Back Road”, the lead-off single and title track to his fourth album Take a Back Road, was released in April 2011. It became his sixth number 1 late in the year, and accounted for his highest placement on the Hot 100, at number 23. The song was co-written by Luke Laird and Rhett Akins, the latter of whom co-wrote “Farmer’s Daughter”. “He’s Mine” was the album’s second single. The song was originally recorded by Billy Ray Cyrus, and Atkins chose to release it because it received positive reactions from fans in concert. It peaked at number 23 on the country chart in April 2012. “Just Wanna Rock N’ Roll”, the album’s third single, peaked at number 31 on the Country Airplay chart in late 2012.
