Despite a rocky 2012, Rodney Atkins will focus his efforts and use his talent to help raise money for cancer research at a Kentucky Derby Eve dinner party. The party, called the Julep, will be held on May 4 in Louisville to benefit the James Graham Brown Cancer Center at the University of Louisville. Make no qualms about it, this is an event for those living high on the hog. At $500 a plate, Atkins will have the opportunity to help raise tens of thousands of dollars for the cancer center.

The release was such a hit that it broke records, topping three Billboard charts the week of its release — Top Country Albums, Top Christian Albums and Top Christian and Gospel Albums. Now, six years later, the singer-songwriter has decided to re-release the set of hymns to make the album still available to his fans.
