Rodney Atkins and Gloriana Support Children’s Charity
Country music star Rodney Atkins and special guest, Gloriana, will help support the 13th annual St. Jude Country Music Marathon and half Marathon. Combining great country music with Nashville’s premier running event, Rodney and Gloriana will top off the weekend of fun with a post-race concert at the Bridgestone Arena on Saturday, April 28. A to Z Entertainment, Inc. supports St. Jude Children’s Research hospital and we hope you will too! We’re also your best entertainment booking agent and agency for hiring country singer Rodney Atkins.
The musically themed road race attracts more than 30,000 runners, walkers and 6,000 junior racers through ING KiDS ROCK Nashville, who will take on the 26.2 and 13.1-mile courses while passing many of Nashville’s best live bands along the route.
“For all these people to come out and push themselves to this great of a length for such good cause is exciting and definitely something to celebrate,” shared Atkins. “It will be a fun night and I’m looking forward to being a part of it all.”
The event will support St. Jude Children’s Research Hospital, one of the world’s premier centers for the research and treatment of childhood cancer and other deadly diseases. This year marks the 50th anniversary of St. Jude and its lifesaving mission of finding cures and saving children.
“Since opening its doors in 1962, St. Jude has changed the way the world treats childhood cancer and other deadly diseases through pioneering research breakthroughs and unparalleled patient care,” said Richard Shadyac Jr., CEO of ALSAC, the fundraising organization of St. Jude. “Our lifesaving work would not be possible without the support of the public, including running enthusiasts and our St. Jude Heroes participating in the St. Jude Country Music Marathon & ½ Marathon.”
Award-winning country music singer and songwriter Rodney Atkins has an impressive background in entertaining country music fans. Atkins has landed six No. 1 hits, including the most recent platinum-selling chart-topper, “Take A Back Road,” and has over five million single sales in the past five years alone. The new album, TAKE A BACK ROAD (released Oct. 4, 2011), has helped propel Rodney to even bigger heights with the out-of-the-box smash, “Take A Back Road,” and current single, “He’s Mine.”
