Country singer Rodney Atkins denies domestic violence allegations

However, Atkins has a completely different side to the story, and said that the two were just verbally arguing, and that it never turned physical. He claims that while arguing, his No. 1 priority was his son; and that he did not want the child to have to hear mom and dad fight.
