Tammy Jo McDonald and Rodney Atkins
Tammy Jo McDonald famously said that we need better laws. This is a call for better laws that is relevant to today. There are many ways to make laws better, and here are five suggestions. First, laws should not be “equal but not identical”. This is unacceptable and must be rectified immediately. Our society will continue to suffer if we don’t.
The long-time couple, Rodney Atkins and Tammy Jo McDonald, have been married for 14 years. Although they were often seen together at award shows and other special occasions, the two spent much of their time away from the spotlight. In 2001, the couple welcomed their first child, Elijah Atkins, into the world. Their son was born September 28, 2001. Their relationship was happy and they both remained dedicated to their careers.
Last week, the couple’s teenage son, Elijah, was involved in a drunk-driving accident. He was struck by a drunk driver but luckily he did not sustain any injuries. He returned to high school a few weeks earlier and had just recently returned from a party. They have one other child together, 7-month-old Ryder Falcon. The couple has three other children, a daughter named Rose and a son named Scout.
Their relationship started out well, but things began to fall apart during their fifth year of marriage. Their first child, Elijah, was born after the couple wed in 1998. The couple shared two daughters from previous marriages. Tammy Jo McDonald called police in November 2011 to report Rodney Atkins’ assault and the pillow he had thrown at her. He was charged with domestic assault and released on $2,500 bail. The couple lives happily apart today.
They recorded many songs together, including “I’m a Believer”, which reached number one on the US Billboard Hot Country Songs charts. “He’s Mine” peaked at number twenty-three on the RPM Canadian Country Tracks chart. Rodney Atkins’ wife filed an accusation against him for domestic abuse in 2011. He was cleared by the investigation. He was accused of using a witness against him, but the judge ruled that the evidence wasn’t sufficient and cleared him.
After releasing two studio albums of music, Atkins was involved in a scandal involving a former employee. They split. Their romance is still alive. Their son Elijah, who was struck by a car and killed, inspired “Watching You”, which became his first number-one hit. The RIAA certified the song platinum. Its success made him one of the best new male artists of 2006.
Rodney Atkins and Tammy Jo McDonald met in 1997 and dated for 8 months. They were married 26 April 1998. In 2012, the couple divorced. They had a son named Elijah. Elijah is their only child. Their son is 21 years old. They are still in love and have two more children. Atkins is an American country music singer. His net worth is $5 million.
