Rodney Atkins, Randy Travis, Ronnie Milsap, Ashton Shepherd, the Roys, Natalie Grant and Committed in a special musical project paying homage to the book series, 'Little House on the Prairie' written by Laura Ingalls Wilder.

The evening of live performances, dubbed 'Pa's Fiddle: America's Music,' took place at Nashville's famed Loveless Barn, on Friday, Jan. 6, as part of a special show that will air on select stations on PBS starting in June for a period of two years. A CD and DVD of 'Pa's Fiddle: America's Music' will be available in June. It can be pre-ordered here.

"As exciting as it's been for me, it's even more exciting to see these excellent musicians get so excited about playing this music," musical coordinator Dale Cockrell tells Nashville's Daily News Journal. "They don't get the opportunity to do that very much, and to see them almost melting in the studio in the presence of this great music is a wonderful opportunity."

Rodney remains focused on work, in spite of his pending divorce from wife, Tammy. The Tennessee native released his latest CD, 'Take a Back Road,' in October, which he says is unlike the music fans have heard from him in the past.

"This album is different in that it's got more edge on it," he admits to The Boot. "It's a more soulful album."

Rodney will play several shows over the next few months in support of the disc. See his concert schedule here.
