Rodney Atkins is a powerful voice on country radio, with his Platinum-selling No. 1 “Watching You” earning the top spot on Country Aircheck’s top-played songs of the decade list. Atkins was the second-most played artist of the decade overall and has amassed six No. 1 hits throughout his career including “If You’re Going Through Hell (Before the Devil Even Knows)”, “Watching You”, “These Are My People”, “Cleaning This Gun (Come On In Boy)”, “It’s America” and “Take A Back Road.” He has also sold over 13 million units and was recently awarded with a plaque celebrating his nine career Gold, Platinum and Multi-Platinum RIAA certifications to date. Atkins’ latest single, “Caught Up In The Country,” is currently impacting at country radio and is available on all digital platforms now.


Dylan Schneider is wise beyond his years, especially when it comes to his songwriting. But perhaps even more impressive is Schneider’s ability and willingness to connect with fans on a personal level. “I used to freak out if an artist would respond or interact with me. It’s incredibly important to me that I do the same with my fans.” That love for fans has helped grow Schneider a collective social following of over 1,000,000.
