Country music entertainer Tim Atwood will appear on RFD-TV’s television show The Merlin Gene Show, airing Saturday, March 13 at 5:30 pm ET and Thursday, March 18 at 7:00 am ET. Starting this weekend and during new, upcoming episodes, viewers will see a live performance of original songs which Atwood included on his current album Who I Am. The Merlin Gene Show is taped at the historic Donoho Hotel in Red Boiling Springs, Tennessee at the Ronnie McDowell Entertainment Center.
“When Merlin Gene called and asked me to be a part of his show, I didn’t hesitate to say yes,” shares Atwood. “Merlin has created a family-friendly show that features traditional country and gospel music laced with humor and fun. I think we could all use a healthy dose of this show on a regular basis. I had a blast working with the exceptional band on set. I have worked with all of these talented musicians in the past, and truthfully, to entertain with these men and women felt like I was home again.”
Never one to sit still for long, Atwood recently released his fourth studio album Who I Am, which showcases his versatility as a writer and a performer as he takes his fans on a musical journey that includes his self penned, country shuffle “Migraine Heartache” as well as Delbert McClinton’s soulful anthem “Sending Me Angels.” Atwood has never been an artist who readily fits into any one box and he takes pride in this fact.

“I am honored to perform “Migraine Heartache,” one of my originals, on this week’s episode. I wrote “Migraine Heartache” with my wife Roxane. We sat down to write a new country shuffle for our traditional friends to scoot their boots around a dance floor. “Migraine Heartache” was the end result. To have a migraine headache is bad enough, but when you have a migraine heartache, you’re really hurting. It’s funny though. You can set out to write a sad country song, but when you put it in 4/4 time, it makes you smile,” beams Atwood.
During his thirty-eight years on the Grand Ole Opry stage, Tim performed alongside nearly four decades of country music hitmakers including Loretta Lynn, George Jones, Marty Robbins, Jeannie Seely, Dolly Parton, The Oak Ridge Boys, Merle Haggard, Willie Nelson, Garth Brooks, Vince Gill, Carrie Underwood, and Taylor Swift.
“You have musicians and you have singers. Tim Atwood is that and much more. He’s an entertainer,” gushes show host Merlin Gene. “He can rock that piano, sing a country ballad that will make you cry, then sing a tender gospel song that makes you feel God’s love. And the guy is funny too. We were happy to use Tim in some of the comedy skits that we sprinkle throughout the show. I love this guy!”
