Curb Records’ Rodney Atkins will kick off his Thanksgiving celebration a day early making an appearance on NBC’s Late Night With Jimmy Fallon on Wednesday, November 23 to perform his two-week No. 1 and the title track of his new album, “Take A Back Road,” alongside acclaimed Fallon house band, The Roots. Atkins will then join TODAY Show’s Al Rokeron Thursday, November 24 prior to his performance on The 85th Annual Macy’s Thanksgiving Day Parade® on NBC.
Atkins, who released his fourth studio album, TAKE A BACK ROAD, on Oct. 4, also opens up for the first time about his adoption in this week’s PEOPLE Magazine and the emotional moment when he was able to meet and reunite with his birth mother for the first time.
