Rodney Atkins and Son Thrill Fan Club
Rodney Atkins pumped up his adoring fans during a Friday morning (June 8) appearance at his fan club party at the Belcourt Theatre in Nashville. Atkins kicked off the party by performing songs from his album, If You're Going Through Hell. When the time came to perform his No. 1 hit, "Watching You," Atkins, however, was not alone. His son Elijah, whom he wrote the song about, joined his father on stage to sing along. As the country star replaced his guitar around his neck with Elijah on his hip, fans rushed to the front of the stage to snap photos and sing along as well. Atkins then went on to sing "Cleaning This Gun (Come On In Boy)" and two new songs that have not yet been recorded. Atkins and his band concluded the party that was broadcast on XM Satellite radio with a rendition of his hit single, "If You're Going Through Hell (Before the Devil Even Knows)." Atkins then met and took pictures with fans before heading to Minnesota for a concert. He'll be back in Nashville Sunday night (June 10) to perform at the closing concert of the 2007 CMA Music Festival.
