Rodney Atkins recently partnered with Applebee’s to launch an ongoing military thank-you campaign, honoring veterans and active duty soldiers worldwide. As Ambassador of the Thank You Movement, Atkins debuted the campaign yesterday (10/25) with an exclusive announcement on NBC’s Today show. He followed up the launch with a live performance in New York’s Times Square for civilians, veterans and military organizations. Guests of honor at the event included representatives from Pinnacle Five, Disabled American Veterans (DAV) and Military.com.
Additionally, Atkins is scheduled to participate in a USO tour of military bases abroad in 2012.
Atkins and Randy Houser will also perform at the upcoming Third Annual Josie’s Birthday Bash. As previously announced, the annual charity event was created by Thompson Square to benefit children living with Cystic Fibrosis. The concert will be held at the Wildhorse Saloon on Nov. 16.
