Curb Record artist Rodney Atkins’ latest single, “Farmer’s Daughter,” is currently racing up the iTunes download charts and the song’s just-released video is now airing on Turbo Track rotation on Great American Country (gactv.com).
Atkins’ tune about a hot summer romance that turns to true love has become the fastest climbing single in the singer’s career, selling more than 140,000 downloads on iTunes in only a few weeks. His previous No. 1 hits, “If You’re Going Through Hell,” “These Are My People,” and “Cleaning This Gun,” are approaching three-quarters of a million single downloads and with the rapid rise of “Farmer’s Daughter,” he is sure to break the million mark soon.
Filming the video in rural Franklin, Tennessee, Atkins got a taste of authentic farm life, driving a tractor and bucking hay. Chris Hicky directed the clip which features Atkins’ real-life wife, Tammy Jo, as the “Farmer’s Daughter” whom he ends up marrying.
Hicky also directed Miranda Lambert’s “White Liar,” recently winning Best Female Video of the Year at the CMT Awards.
“Farmer’s Daughter” is the fourth single from Atkins’ third studio album It’s America. The title cut went to No. 1. Atkins’ 2006 album If You’re Going Through Hell yielded four chart-toppers.
