Atkins gains momentum on the road to the top of the charts with most added single today
 
NASHVILLE, TN (April 25, 2011) – Platinum selling Curb Records’ Rodney Atkins is no stranger to hit songs as he has posted a number of chart topping and history making singles throughout his career.  Today, Atkins enters the charts as one of the most added singles with 40 stations on “Take A Back Road,” its debut week.  Atkins is looking forward to a busy summer on tour and traveling the back roads as well as the main roads on the strength of another hit.  In conjunction with the release, Atkins is offering radio listeners a chance to win a new Chevy Silverado through a nationwide contest at country radio.  This is the second single from Atkins’ forthcoming Curb Records release.
 
Written by red-hot Rhett Akins and Luke Laird, “Take A Back Road” is a song of discontentment that dreams of contentment with all that a hot summer day has to offer.  The listener will surely figure the rest of it out.  “I heard this song and immediately knew it was for me,” says Atkins; the multi-No. 1 hit maker and owner of several most played songs of the year.  “This song has hit written all over it.  Anyone who has ever been stuck in traffic will surely relate,” he continued.
