Backstage at the Opry with Rodney Atkins

May 17, 2006--Posted at 12:00 p.m.  CDT

NASHVILLE, TN--Rodney Atkins hit the country music scene 3 years ago with his debut album and top five single, "Honesty." Now Rodney's taking that honesty and using it to forge his new CD about to hit the racks entitled, "If You're Going Through Hell, Keep On Going." 

Atkins says he hopes this album will help people get through the tough times.  He says that's what his music is, a chance to share life experiences with others in hopes of making a difference. "People say Country music makes you laugh or cry," said Atkins. "I think it's not supposed to waste your time. It's supposed to get to you. I believe in the words."

For Atkins, playing the Grand Ole Opry is one of those "big" moments. "It's an honor," said Atkins. "It's the church of country music and I can't believe I'm here. I've got a long way to go to get my music out there and be a part of people's lives. You write something that can change peoples lives. That's what I want to do."

Atkins new album is slated to hit music stores in July.
