Let me take a minute to introduce Nashville recording artist Rod Richmond. Rod is an all American Country Boy. He grew up in a small, farm town hunting, fishing, and living the life we hear so much about in today’s country songs.
Rod has been writing and has now completed his second studio album “Livin In The USA”. He has been touring in support of two successful radio singles and a successful Christmas song.
Rod went in the army when he was seventeen. While in the army, Rod regularly packed up an army buddy or two and traveled all over the country just to see as much of it as he could see. He says his most vivid memories come from the time he was assigned to the World Trade Center after the attacks on September 11.
Rod got his first guitar at age five. His musical heroes are Johnny Cash and Elvis. His influences range from classic country artists like Marty Robbins and Conway Twitty to southern rock legends like CCR and Skynrd and everyone in between. He is often compared to Alan Jackson and Josh Turner but prefers to think he has a sound all his own.
The first single nationwide was “You Don’t Know Jack”. As a debut single to radio, we consider its 103 peak on the Music Row chart another great achievement. The current single “After The Shock And Awe” is climbing the chart and the video has had over 120,000 views.
Rod’s shows are always crowd pleasers. Upbeat, interactive, and dynamic are words to describe the Rod Richmond show. Each show is tailored to connect with the audience on a personal level. The Whitetail Band that plays with Rod Richmond has a list of credits too long to mention. Suffice it to say Rod plays with some of the most talented musicians in the country. Their incredible talent adds a great deal of flair to the show.
Rod is a steadfast advocate for our military and their families. His first album “Star In The Window” is dedicated to the American Gold Star Mothers. Rod notes one of the most touching moments of his music career is when he performed for The American Gold Star Mothers in Arlington, Virginia. He was asked to attend their annual convention, where he presented a check for the funds raised from the sale of the “Star In The Window” album.
In closing, please let me say Rod Richmond is a very talented, entertaining singer/songwriter. He has played for audiences from coast to coast. His popularity and recognition is growing daily as radio and live audiences discover his music.
