Curb artist Rodney Atkins‘ new single “Caught Up In The Country” features vocals from the Fisk Jubilee Singers. The track is the first from Atkins’ upcoming fifth studio album.

“Listening to the Fisk Jubilee Singers with their hand clapping and foot stomping music is really a spiritual experience,” says Atkins. “When I heard ‘Caught Up In The Country’ I just felt like the two things had to come together. It doesn’t sound like anything I’ve recorded or released before and that also excites me.”

At a listening event previewing his new music on March 21, Atkins was honored with a plaque celebrating his nine career Gold, Platinum and Multi-Platinum RIAA certifications to date. In addition to his sales success, which includes over 13 million units sold, Atkins has also amassed six No. 1 hits.
