OverviewEdit

Back Home Again marks the last of Rogers' albums with Reprise, and marks the beginning of Rogers' movement between various labels, including his own future upcoming label, Dreamcatcher Records, in years to come.

Of the Reprise albums, this one had the worst chart showing. The album only reached number 42 on the U.S. Country charts and is Rogers' second consecutive album to not attain any certifications from the RIAA.

Rogers split from Reprise after this record's run, though he did remain with the parent company WEA at their Giant Records division.
