Enid Event Center

Country music artist Rodney Atkins will be in Enid Saturday as a culmination to the day’s Cherokee Strip Celebration events.

Atkins’ platinum-selling album, “If You’re Going Through Hell,” contains RIAA-certified Gold songs “These Are My People” and “Cleaning This Gun,” as well as an RIAA-certified Platinum song, “Watching You.”

The title track to his 2011 album, “Take A Back Road,” won Song of the Year at the 2012 BMI Awards. He has performed the song on NBC’s Late Night with Jimmy Fallon and at Macy’s Thanksgiving Day Parade.

Atkins currently is working on his fifth studio album.

Joining Atkins will be Rose Falcon, an up-and-coming artist who has been named one of Country Weekly’s “Ones to Watch in 2013,” as well as CMT’s “Next Women of Country.”

Tickets are $25 or $29 and are on sale at, or by calling 855-TIX-ENID.
