Details Release Date: Oct 04, 2011; Lead Performance: Rodney Atkins; Genre: Country; Production: Curb

This Nashville journeyman can lay on the aw-shucks shtick pretty thick in Take a Back Road: On ''Lifelines,'' he sits down to Sunday dinner at 
 Mama's house and tells her he's feeling good — ''almost as good as your gravy.'' (No wonder Cracker Barrel released his best-of last year.) At his most relaxed, though — as on ''Growing Up Like That'' or the hit title track — Atkins makes for a first-rate correspondent from Anytown, USA. Home is where his heart is. B
