Before They Were Famous: Rodney Atkins

Rodney Atkins was an ambitious young entrepreneur who opened his own lawn mowing business at age 12. On a recent episode of ‘Day Jobs‘ on GAC-TV, Atkins talked about how a gig mowing his neighbor’s lawn turned into a landscaping business, which included mowing cemetery plots for $10 a plot. That’s pretty good money!

Even after all his country music success, Atkins refuses to hire a landscaper at his own home in Nashville. He prefers to do it himself, pushing dirt around with his own tractor. It seems like there may be a little bit of Atkins’ personal biography in his 2010 hit ‘Farmer’s Daughter.’
