Ronkonkoma, New York – For the first time in the history of Long Island MacArthur Airport, radio station My Country 96.1, and Pen Air have teamed up to bring country music superstar Rodney Atkins to the atrium at the airport for a free lunch time concert at 12 on October 22nd.
The live event is open to the public and will be the first of many live music events to highlight the new energy and promote the new business at Long Island’s MacArthur Airport. My Country 96.1 approached the airport management after learning that Atkins wanted to do a free show for the listeners of the radio station.
Rodney Atkins, an East Tennessee native, is ready to rock the airport! He has an impressive track record with hitting on sentiments that strike a chord with the country listener. He has had six number one hits from his first three albums, and his most recent smash hits “Take a Back Road”, and “Farmers Daughter” have skyrocketed to platinum hits. He has sold over four million singles in the past five years.
“This is only the beginning of our Airport Atrium lineup,” says Phathead, Director of Programming for My Country 96.1.
“More great shows will be announced shortly---My Country 96.1 is committed to bring major national country music talent to Long Island because Long Island loves its country,” John Caracciolo, President of JVC Broadcasting said. “Thanks to our partners like The Town of Islip, Nardy Honda, Pen Air and Long Island MacArthur Airport we can start the tradition of superstar talent right in our own back yard, and for free too!
Islip Town Councilman John Cochrane, liaison to MacArthur Airport echoed support and said, “We are thrilled to have Rodney Atkins. This is exactly how we envision promoting Long Island MacArthur Airport by having talents like Rodney Atkins giving free concerts to our travelers and Islip residents. Long Island MacArthur Airport is the hallmark for both Nassau and Suffolk Counties.”
