Country fans can enjoy a weekend of music, food and fun on Jekyll Island this August for Rodney Atkins' America's Heroes Celebration Weekend. Dedicated to the brave men and women who serve in our nation's military, this weekend celebration will bring together families and friends for several exciting events including a spotlight for one of the biggest names in country music.
Who could that be?!
Throughout the weekend of August 16 through August 18, artists will perform at a variety of venues around the island, ending with a concert from country music all-star Rodney Atkins. On Sunday, August 18, Atkins will rock the stage of the Jekyll Island Convention Center to entertain crowds in a mega-salute to the men and women of our military.
The east Tennessee-native will rock the Jekyll Island Convention Center stage with songs off his yet-to-be-released new album, in addition to hits such as "Take a Back Road," "Farmer's Daughter" and "These are My People." Atkins will take the stage at 5PM, following opening act Rose Falcon, who will begin at 4PM.
More about the Weekend:
On Friday, August 16, the Jekyll Island Club Hotel and Morgan Center will host the Carolina Breakers for the Golden Isles Shag Club's annual Shag-A-Ganza. You can catch them again on Saturday at the free Jekyll Island Beach Party alongside DJ Wayne Bennett while enjoying cool libations, food and games. Later that night, headliner Dean Torrence, of Jan and Dean Torrence, will light up the stage at the Jekyll Island Convention Center at 7PM.
