TALLAHASSEE, Fla. (Nov. 5, 2018) – The Junior League of Tallahassee announced Rodney Atkins will headline its inaugural Sunshine State Ball, Jan. 11, 2019. The American country music artist will perform live during a celebration of everything that makes Florida the best place to live, work and raise a family, along with the volunteer work that strengthens communities.

 

“We are ecstatic to share that Rodney Atkins will bring his talent to the Sunshine State Ball,” said Junior League of Tallahassee President Lex Phillips. “He’s an artist who believes in our mission, and he will no doubt have us all up on our feet. The Junior League of Tallahassee worked diligently to select someone who would bring positive energy to the inaugural Ball. We are so excited to enjoy an incredible evening with his music as we celebrate and support our community.”

 

Held during Florida’s inauguration week at the Donald L. Tucker Civic Center, the black-tie event will host Tallahassee residents and guests from around the Sunshine State, welcoming them to the Capital City to enjoy dinner along with Atkins’ live performance. Already with six number-one hits in his career, Atkins is known for chart-topping tracks such as “Take A Back Road,” “These Are My People,” and “Watching You.”

“The need to strengthen organizations supporting basic needs in the Big Bend is stronger than ever,” added Phillips. “The Ball will be a time of celebration and pride. We love our state. And during the hardest of times, we come together and help each other. This will be a chance to give back and lift up the volunteer organizations doing so much good in our area.”
