Rodney Atkins Honored With Youth Home

Rodney Atkins returned to his first home in Greenville, Tenn., this week to help celebrate the newly renovated campus at Holston Home, a facility for children.
 

 

Rodney was adopted from Holston Home when he was still an infant. He spent part of the day performing a special acoustic concert, signing autographs and getting to know the children at the home.  Rodney also participated in the official ribbon cutting ceremony in which the "Rodney Atkins Youth Home" was named and dedicated. "This is absolutely one of the greatest things of my life," says Rodney. "This isn't a career achievement. This is a life achievement. Just to have the opportunity to try and positively affect those kids' lives is wonderful.  I am so thankful for the folks at Holston Home and their hard work.  They absolutely are some of the greatest people alive.  It's really hard to express how grateful I am to be a part of Holston's mission."
