Rod Picott‘s music is honest, raw and uncontrived. His vocals are intimate and his lyrics are vivid narratives of a life lived long and hard. Audiences live the stories he sings – that’s the impact of a performance by this powerful, talented and inspiring artist. Though internationally lauded for his blue collar anthems, Picott is equally noted for exploring his own inner life with the same deft and revealing hand.
Rod is a singer-songwriter whose music incorporates elements of Americana, alternative country, and folk. He was born in New Hampshire, but relocated to Nashville, Tennessee in 1994. After several years of playing local clubs and opening on the big stages for such acts as Alison Krauss, he released his first album in 2001. As of 2017, he has released 11 albums and received national recognition as a voice to be heard. Team Stayaway is especially proud that Rod has chosen to present on our online stage.
