Rodney Allan Atkins (born March 28, 1969) is an American country music singer and songwriter. Signed to Curb Records in 1996, he charted his first single on the Billboard country chart in 1997, but did not release an album until 2003’s Honesty, which included the number 4 hit “Honesty (Write Me a List)”.

If You’re Going Through Hell, his second album, was released in 2006. Its first two singles, “If You’re Going Through Hell (Before the Devil Even Knows)” and “Watching You”, each spent four weeks at number one the country music chart, and were respectively ranked as the top country songs of 2006 and 2007 according to Billboard Year-End. The album, which has since been certified platinum in the United States, produced two more number one singles in “These Are My People” and “Cleaning This Gun (Come On In Boy)”. It’s America (2009) included the number one single “It’s America” and the Top 5 hit “Farmer’s Daughter”, which was added to a later reissue of the album. Take a Back Road (2011) produced his sixth number one in its title track, and 2019’s Caught Up in the Country set a record for the longest run on the country singles charts with its title track. Atkins has received six nominations from the Academy of Country Music and two from the Country Music Association, winning Top New Male Vocalist from the former in 2006.

Known for their LIVE shows. Brushville has been playing SOLD OUT shows because of their high energy performances. One reporter compared a Brushville show to a hockey game. “It was an engineering masterpiece as all members could switch out of one song mid-stream and into another seamlessly. It was like watching a hockey game where the players changed, but the action and the game clock kept rolling.”

Brushville blends four extremely talented musicians, with incredible harmonies, an explosive stage show and a fresh, dynamic sound produced by an array of instruments to create an unforgettable experience for the audience. Brushville has been expanding their assault throughout the nation and is sure to be lighting up your area very shortly.
