Rodney Atkins was born in 1969 in Knoxville, Tennessee. Because his mother had him at such a young age she was forced to put Atkins up for adoption.

For months after being born Atkins was going through some health problems which led his first foster parents to put him back up for adoption. The Atkins family took him in anyways and raised the Country superstar.

In 2008 Atkins was reunited with his birth mother for the first time Nashville, Tennessee. Atkins told the AssociatedPress: “It hit me at that moment, walking in that room, getting to know her,” ATKINS said. “She’s a wonderful, beautiful lady. I realized that the reason I needed to do that did not have anything to do with my parents. I’m glad I did that really, really, really for her. She’s been carrying that around, wondering what happened, and I could tell it was such a relief.”

Rodney Atkins Live In Amarillo: Thursday April 4th at the Amarillo Civic Center, 401 S. Buchanan St. , Amarillo. Tickets are $25 + service fees; you buy at all Panhandle Ticket Outlet locations or at the Civic Center Box Office
