Rodney Atkins Takes the High-Road in Personal Life and Thanks Fans for Good Thoughts


Rodney Adkins recently talked with our long time buddy Broadway at KISS Country Mornings and took a minute to give his fans a BIG thank you for all of the prayers and good thoughts through his recent personal and legal battles with his soon-to-be-ex-wife.

In November 2011 Rodney was arrested, then later released of all charges, for domestic abuse. According to court documents filed Rodney’s wife, Tammy Jo, called the police on the morning of Nov. 21, alleging a drunk night of fighting resulted in Rodney attempting to smother her with a pillow. She also claimed her husband grabbed her by the face and threw her down a hallway in front of their 10-year-old son, Elijah. Rodney was subsequently arrested, and released on $2,500 bail.

In February 2012 the courts ruled that Rodney would not be prosecuted on a misdemeanor domestic assault charge if he continues to meet court-ordered conditions.

Basically, as long as he stays out of trouble for the next 11 months and completes 30 hours of community service, the charge will be retired. Rodney didn’t admit to any guilt and passed court ordered anger management, and drug and alcohol evaluations.
