Rodney Atkins wants to hear your worst 15 Minutes

Tuesday, August 4, 2009 – Rodney Atkins wants to hear about the worst 15 minutes of your life. The current single from "It's America" is a honky tonk sing-along that pokes fun at a guy giving up the "good" things in life - beer, cigarettes and women.

Fans can email Atkins a photo, video, or just a good story about the worst 15 minutes of their life and he will pick the best (or worst, depending how you look at it) submission to win a fly away trip to San Diego. The winner and a guest will receive round-trip airfare from a Southwest Airlines city, two nights hotel accommodations, two tickets to see Rodney Atkins on Oct. 24, two meet & greet passes to meet Rodney and an exclusive "behind the scenes" tour at the show. People can enter the contest at

Rodney Atkins is here to tell us: you don't mess with the recipe. As usual, the hook-seeking guitar licks lead the pop country charge, with the occasional appearance of fiddles and banjos for seasoning. Atkins tapped into the services of an army of writers for the 11 songs, including 3 he helped write. ...
