MACK, Colo. (KKCO) - Country superstar Rodney Atkins not only made an impression on the crowds at Major Mortgage Country Jam 2011, but one brave, little girl as well.

8-year-old Delaney Clements has been battling cancer since last fall.

Rodney Atkins is her favorite country singer -- and when he heard about her, he personally invited her and her family to meet him.

Delaney couldn't stop smiling as she talked about it.

"It was awesome," said Delaney. "Taking a picture with him [was the best part.]"

Atkins also invited Delaney and her family to sit on stage during his set and brought her out during his performance of his hit single "Farmer's Daughter."
