Rodney Atkins has been named popular southern college football website Southern Pigskin’s celebrity game predictor. Rodney will name his picks for key college football games each week as well as give fans a closer look at his life. A former baseball player and avid college football fan, Rodney is the perfect partnership for the website.
“We are honored to have Rodney picking games with us,” Southern Pigskin publisher BJ Bennett said. “Rodney and his music are as much about the southern culture as football is in the south. He touches people through the words in his songs. He is much ACC, SEC and Southern Conference as we are. He knows college football, especially the southern football leagues. He almost beat me. It’s going to be another wild and crazy year of football and we can’t wait.”
“The energy of college football rivals that of a live performance for me,” Rodney said. “I am an extremely analytical guy and predicting these games is right up my alley, especially with a little luck thrown in. It is even more fun when I am winning and I have to say, I have fared quite well in my predictions. This season is going to be an exciting and unpredictable one and I look forward to seeing my winning percentage every week.”
Rodney will release his latest album, Take A Back Road, on October 4. He is also shooting an episode of GAC’s Origins to air later this fall as well as the music video for his latest Top 10 hit, “Take A Back Road.”
