Rod just released his second studio album, Livin In the USA, on Dec 19, 2011 on the Red White And Blue Record label. This is some of Rod's finest work. His favorite is the 1st track "After The Shock And Awe". We hope you like it.
Rod's Star In The Window album was a culmination of many years work in terms of writing, arrangng, and recording. He has spent two years at Cupit Studio In Nashville perfecting the songs. He states he "couldn't be happier", and is very proud of the finished product. The album was released May 17, 2009 on the Red White and Blue Records label.
