Country fans heading to Nashville in June for the CMT Music Awards and CMA Music Fest will have the chance to join chart-topping country artist Rodney Atkins for his annual “Music City Gives Back” concert in downtown Nashville on Tuesday, June 3. Now in its fourth year, the show will feature an all-star lineup of Atkins’ friends including Lee Brice, Jana Kramer, Dustin Lynch, Josh Thompson and more and will benefit Nashville’s W.O. Smith Music School. The event will kick off at 6:00 p.m. CT at 1st Avenue and Broadway and is free to the public.
Carl Black Chevrolet and Wrangler® are returning for the fourth year as presenting sponsors for Music City Gives Back. Both sponsors will stream the show live on CarlBlackRadio.com and WranglerNetwork.com, a first-of-its-kind mobile and online destination that serves as a centralized hub for all Western lifestyle content, respectively. Ally Financial will also be joining the event this year as a stage sponsor. Cumulus Media stations NASH-FM 103.3 and WSM-FM 95.5 will be on site, with “NASH Nights Live” Host Shawn Parr broadcasting live and “America’s Morning Show” Host Blair Garner introducing artists as they hit the stage.
“I am so excited to be part of this event for the fourth year in a row and to have such a great group of artists give their time and talent to help out,” said Atkins. “I’ve always believed that music is a great healer and it’s important to me as an artist to use that platform to give back.”
Founded in 1984, W.O. Smith Music School provides music instruction to children from low-income families for the nominal cost of 50 cents per lesson. An all-volunteer teaching artist faculty of 220 gives music lessons to more than 650 students annually. Instruments and all learning materials are loaned to the students at no additional expense.
Atkins is currently working on his fifth studio album for Curb Records and performing headlining dates across the country. For more information, please visit www.RodneyAtkins.com or follow on Twitter and Facebook @RodneyAtkins.

In honor of Veterans Day, country artist Rodney Atkins made a special visit to the Tennessee Valley Healthcare System’s Nashville Campus VA Hospital yesterday, which was arranged through one of Musicians On Call’s weekly Bedside Performance Programs to visit with patients who have served in the U.S. military. The country music singer/songwriter went room to room personally thanking vets for their service and uplifting their spirits with performances of hits such as "Farmer's Daughter," "If You're Going Through Hell" and his latest single "Doin' It Right."
“Any time I can support our military heroes, I’m honored to be involved,” said Atkins. “Music is a powerful healer, and I’m grateful that programs like Musicians On Call provide these opportunities for artists to connect through music.”
Founded in 1999, Musicians On Call offers musicians such as Atkins the opportunity to bring their music to patients' bedsides. To date, these volunteers have played for over 400,000 people in healthcare facilities nationwide. The Nashville branch alone has visited nearly 60,000 patients in Middle Tennessee and will celebrate its sixth anniversary this week with an intimate concert headlined by Kelly Clarkson.
