Rodney Atkins Concert Review


On April 24th, 2014 Toby Keith's Bar & Grill in Woodbridge. VA was expecting a special guest. Rodney Atkins was in town and was ready to perform some real country music.

Opening act Wesley Spangler took the stage first. Wesley is a local musician who prides himself not only on his original songs but on well-known cover songs as well. He performed songs by Blake Shelton, Brett Eldredge and Colt Ford. His stage presence is strong and he knows how to get the crowd going. The band was incredible also. It was the perfect way to start the night.
