Like millions of Americans, Rodney enjoys stopping at Cracker Barrel when he's on the road, sitting for awhile on the front porch, and having a great meal. “I love seeing a " Cracker Barrel Up Ahead" sign on the road cause we all know that whenever you stop by, you are guaranteed to get a great meal – just like home.  I’m excited to team up with the Cracker Barrel family and to make this new CD available exclusively to the folks stopping by.” said Rodney.  Menu favorites for Rodney include the open roast beef sandwich, biscuits n’gravy, hash brown casserole, chicken n' dumplins and of course a “big ol' glass of sweet tea with lemon”.

The previously unreleased song on Cracker Barrel Presents Rodney Atkins, “More Like Your Memory (Always Takes Me Back),” is one of the first songs that Rodney wrote that opened the door to get to produce his own records with long-time co-producer, Ted Hewitt.
