The country star has set aside a weekend in August at Georgia’s Jekyll Island to honor the men and women serving in our nation’s military. Tickets go on sale tonight for Rodney Atkins’ America’s Heroes Celebration.
Set for Aug. 16-18 weekend, the event will feature music artists performing at venues throughout the island with Atkins rocking the entire shebang at the Jekyll Island Convention Center Aug. 19.
With opening act Rose Falcon performing at 4 p.m., Atkins will take the stage at 5 p.m. Why so early? While no official reason has been given, the early show time was probably influenced by the fireworks display scheduled for 9:30 p.m.
Acts scheduled to perform include The Carolina Breakers Aug. 16; Dean Torrence of Jan & Dean Aug. 17 and Nashville newcomers Cole Taylor and Marjory Lee playing the Sunday afternoon beach party. Read more on the release here…
