Rodney Atkins Gets An "Official Tractor"

Rodney Atkins is truly becoming that "man on a tractor." The country star is teaming up with Massey Ferguson, which is now the "official tractor of Rodney Atkins." The singer says he agreed to the partnership because he believes in the company and what it stands for. He explains, quote, "I've never been one to stray far from my roots on the farm, and hard work and love of the land are a big part of that. I was raised with a love and devotion for this country and the principles it was founded upon. I'm proud to share the stage with a brand like Massey Ferguson that embodies those same core values." As part of the agreement, Rodney will be taking part in a variety of promotional events in conjunction with Massey Ferguson throughout the year.

On the musical front Atkins has been spending time in the studio this month. He's working on songs for his next album, the follow up to his 2009 effort, "It's America."
