It's America


Rodney Atkins knows the value of taking the long way home, of veering off the beaten path onto that road less traveled once in a while. You can hear it in his music, and you can see it in the way he lives his life: putting family first, listening to that inner voice and remaining true to himself, and striving to evolve and find unique ways of expressing himself through the music he puts out ...

Editorial Reviews

East Tennessee singer-songwriter Rodney Atkins scored a chart-topper with the title track of this second release, reframing the Irish drinking toast ("May you be in heaven five minutes before the devil knows you're dead") in a modern context and tying it all up in a Celtic/banjo wrapping fit for Keith Urban. It's a solid effort, and performed with unusual aplomb for a newcomer. But as the rest of the album shows, Atkins seems torn between being a thoughtful, poetic craftsman ("Angel's Hands," "Invisibly Shaken," "A Man on a Tractor") and a hero for redneck simpletons. On the opening "These Are My People," he works the family-values-and-small-town stereotypes to death, continuing with "About the South," a Charlie-Daniels-as-God number on which he's backed by an irritating group of chorines that sound suspiciously like the Hee Haw Hunnies. Which path will Atkins ultimately choose, NPR or Wal-Mart? His second single, "Watching You"--a doing-everything-like-Daddy paean--probably tells the tale. --Alanna Nash

Product Description

Rodney Atkins had delivered a world-class release with Honesty back in 2003, but even then he was searching for something that would bring his music home to his heart and his memory and his love for the people and the values that guide his life. That's what makes his new project different. The voice is still there, deep and strong, a little rough to the touch, like a fence in a field, but also tender and simmering with quiet feeling. It's a voice that's lived a bit since we last heard it. That difference can be heard on the new album's first single, 'If You're Going Through Hell (Before The Devil Even Knows)'. As if to tighten the ties that bind this music to his world, he built a simple studio at home, where he laid down all the vocals between doing chores and spending time with his family. This could be the most inexpensive record Curb has ever done, he says, because there was no engineer and no studio clock ticking away. I'd just go in whenever I felt like singing and it made the process for me that much better. Rodney understands that country music, the way it ought to be played, isn't just about life it is life. It's about what people face every day. That's what they want to hear in country music. And that's what I draw on, what brought me here, every time I sing.

5.0 out of 5 stars Great CD for all us simple rednecks November 15, 2006
Format:Audio CD
very enjoyable CD, fun to listen to and has a few songs that are poignant. I purchesed the CD because I love 'Going Through Hell', though I would not rate that as its best song. My 9 year old cousin loves to listen to 'Watching You' every time he is in my car and will listen to it 5 or 6 times. I really enjoy the somber 'Angel's Hands'.

I was put off when reading the review from Amazon, by someone who probably enjoys anything but Country music, which would explain why he was described as 'poetic craftsman' and a 'hero for redneck simpletons'. I imagine if we enjoy simple songs that are not riddled acts of degradation to women or curse words, than we are not of the high class and only able to understand our small town values.

Purchase the CD, whether it be for yourself or a gift, it will be enjoyed, no matter how much of a backwoods, redneck, banjo picking, simpletion you may be. YEEHAW!!!!

5.0 out of 5 stars Pure Country... September 27, 2006
Format:Audio CD
Needless to say...but there have been a lot of mixed reviews for this album, Rodney's new CD. Most of them have noted the title track 'If You're Going Through Hell' as being a "good song" or a "hit. However, they failed to mention any of the rest. For example, the first two songs on this CD 'These Are My People' and 'About The South'...speak directly about country roots, smalltowns, good tunes and old ways...I absolutely loved them, to say the least. If you love country music for the lyrical anthem of the southern/country/redneck heritage, then you will like this album.

5.0 out of 5 stars Rodney is not hype but very real March 22, 2007
By Diane
Format:Audio CD
I heard an interview with Rodney and it featured this CD. Each song had special meaning to him and he shared the stories. I had already heard several of the songs on the radio and each reminded me of something or someone. I was so impressed with what I heard I ordered 3 of this CD. One for each car and one for home. Going through hell is so appropriate for life these days. In the middle describes his ride home. Watching you reminds me of a friend who has a 4 year old son. Angel's hands really brings it back. Invisibly shaken speaks volumes about feelings. Good voice...Good CD

5.0 out of 5 stars Outstanding album! December 28, 2006
Format:Audio CD
The first time I heard the song "If You're Going Through Hell" I felt like the lyrics were so relevant. I decided just because of that song to get the album. I was pleasantly surprised to find that I loved the entire album. Rodney is a great storyteller. His music stays focused on relevant issues and he shows he has a whole lot of personality. In his song "About the South" he really has a lot of fun. I love how fast and upbeat that song is. You can't help but sing along!! He shows his sense of humor in "Cleaning This Gun (Come on in Boy)" The song is about a father and his protective relationship with his daughter, who is about to go on her first date. I always think about my dad and the relationship between my husband and our daughter who is just 13. (She teases her daddy about when the day comes she can date. No doubt he'll be cleaning his gun!) It just makes you laugh!!! "Watching You" and "Angel's Hands" are great songs that tell stories that we all can relate to.

I highly recommend this album for everyone! It is clean, fun and great! I look forward to many, many more albums by Rodney Atkins!

This album is very enjoyable. I bought it because I find the song "If you're going through hell" to be very inspirational. I am going through "hell" right now and I listen to that song often to motivate me to be a survivor.

I feel so fortunate to have found this CD. I head one of the songs on the radio, "If You're Going Through Hell", and loved it immediately. I bought the CD and wasn't sorry. Every song is great. Rodney has a great voice and amazing songs that you won't be able to stop listening to.
