With nominations for Entertainer of the Year and Male Vocalist of the Year, Tim Atwood is making a name for himself. For over three decades, Tim performed in the spotlight's fringe backing country music's elite as staff piano man on the most venerable stage in country music history--the Grand Ole Opry. Over the course of his career, Tim has played the Opry stage more than 8,500 times. Today Tim performs center stage where he belonged all along.
With his recent television appearances as a featured artist on Larry's Country Diner and Country Family Reunion's Another Wednesday Night Prayer Meeting, audiences have discovered that Tim is more than a singer--more than a pianist. Tim Atwood is an entertainer who loves to hear an audience laugh as much as he loves to hear them applaud.
Tim is the recipient of the 2017 Reunion of Professional Entertainers Musician of the Year Award. The Academy of Western Artists recently elected him AWA Instrumentalist of the Year, and the Genuine Country Music Association named him 2017 Fan Favorite. Tim is also riding high on his 2017 country/gospel chart topper Let's All Go Down To The River-a duet with Mandy Barnett.
When he's not touring the road with Grand Ole Opry legend Jeannie Seely as part of their intimate evening series-just Jeannie, Tim and a piano; sharing stories and songs from their many years in the music industry-Tim entertains audiences with his own show: a dose of high octane country music fun, filled with as many tender moments as musical romps.
Tim began his music career playing gospel music at the age of thirteen for The Harris Family, a family gospel group from East Peoria, Illinois-Tim's hometown. Before settling in at the Grand Ole Opry, Tim toured with country legends Mel Street, Lynn Anderson and Jim Ed Brown where he can still be seen regularly on the rebroadcasts of Jim Ed's TV series Nashville On The Road. Tim's other TV credits include Opry Live, Nashville Now, Hee Haw, Church Street Station, Country On The Gulf, Pop Goes The Country, Country Connection, Late Night With David Letterman, The Dailey & Vincent Show and features on both CBS and NBC National News. Tim is a regular guest host on the iconic Ernest Tubb Midnight Jamboree on WSM Radio, and when we see him perform at Mill Town Music Hall, Tim will just be back from The Country Music Cruise where he will have performed alongside Alabama, The Gatlin Brothers, Asleep At The Wheel, Lorrie Morgan and T Graham Brown.
Tim is currently working on his third album project. A devout Christian, Tim believes his gift FROM God should be his gift TO God.
