About Rodney Carrington: A native of Longview, Texas, Carrington first came to prominence with a series of appearances on morning radio shows across the United States, such as The Bob & Tom Show. The exposure led Carrington to become one of the most sought-after comedians on the live comedy circuit. In 1998, he released his debut album, Hangin’ With Rodney, which led to a successful string of albums, including Rodney Carrington Live, Nut Sack, and Morning Wood, which earned an RIAA Gold certification for sales of 500,000 copies – a rare occurrence for a comedian in the 2000s. He brought his talents to the big screen, appearing with Toby Keith in Beer For My Horses, and his own ABC-TV sitcom, appropriately titled Rodney, which ran for two successful seasons. Carrington has appeared on countless other TV shows, including the ACA (American Country Awards) and hosting the American Country New Year’s Eve Live show on FOX. He also won “Supporting Character of the Year” from the CMT Music Video Awards for his appearance on the Trace Adkins’ music video “I Got My Game On.” Carrington continues to tour and maintain a strong connection to his audience, both at live shows and through social media.
