Country favorite Tim Atwood is known as an Entertainer’s Entertainer—one of the highest compliments you can receive in the music industry. And why not? This multi-award winning piano virtuoso learned from the best.
With over 8,500 Grand Ole Opry performances to his credit, Tim successfully transitioned from the spotlight’s fringe where he played piano for Grammy Award winners and CMA Entertainers of the Year to the center stage where he performs his high energy stage show for eager audiences all over the world.
With recent television appearances on the Hallmark channel’s Home & Family Show, Fox News, RFD-TV’s Larry’s Country Diner and the television series Country Family Reunion: Another Wednesday Night Prayer Meeting, new converts to Tim’s music have discovered what long time Atwood fans have known all along: Tim Atwood has a voice! Tim is a stylist who feels every song he sings, and in turn, the audience feels it too.
Perhaps Grammy Award winner and Grand Ole Opry matriarch Jeannie Seely summed up Tim’s talents best when she said, Tim Atwood will have his audience laughing at one of his many road stories delivering his lines with a quick wit and country boy charm. Then he’ll fire that audience up like only he can–bopping his head and raking his foot across those keys–the audience clapping their hands and singing along, and just like that, he belts out a poignant ballad that puts a lump in their throats and a tear in their eyes. Tim Atwood is an entertainer!
With recent nods for Entertainer of the Year by the Reunion of Professional Entertainers and Male Vocalist of the Year by the Academy of Western Artists, Tim received the 2017 R.O.P.E. Award for Musician of the Year and was named by the Genuine Country Music Association as their 2017 Fan Favorite. In June 2018 Tim was inducted into the ALM Musician’s Hall of Fame.
On the heels of his hit single Let’s All Go Down To The River which earned him a top five spot in the national music charts, Tim experienced a career highlight when he returned to the Grand Ole Opry stage as an artist. From all of those years backing country music’s elite on the Opry stage to walking on the Opry stage as an entertainer myself, felt wonderfully strange. Yet it felt so right, Tim reminisced. I was home.
Tim’s third album Livin’ The Dream defines his current place in life. The album’s content reflects Tim’s love for traditional country music combined with his ability to update the classics to make them his own. His debut single, the patriotic anthem I’ll Stand Up And Say So, has earned Tim a spot on an upcoming episode of the television show Huckabee.
