Honesty is the debut studio album released by American country music artist Rodney Atkins, released in 2003 on Curb Records. It is the second album that he recorded, as a self-titled album in 1997 was recorded for Curb but never issued.

Honesty produced four chart singles for Atkins on the Billboard Hot Country Singles & Tracks (now Hot Country Songs) charts: "Sing Along" (No. 36), "My Old Man" (No. 37), "Honesty (Write Me a List)" (No. 4), and "Someone to Share It With" (No. 41). A fifth single, "Monkey in the Middle", failed to chart. This song and two others on the album were co-written by Brian Gowan, who recorded on Curb in 1997 in the duo Blake & Brian.
