Seventeen years ago Rod Picott dropped his tool belt, picked up an acoustic guitar and released his first album Tiger Tom Dixon’s Blues. The acclaimed debut put a nail in the coffin of his construction career and ignited his second career as a singer-songwriter. Picott’s eye for revealing detail has brought praise from music critics since his debut. His songs have been recorded by Slaid Cleaves, Ray Wylie Hubbard and Fred Eaglesmith and featured in film and television. Now 52 years old and nine albums into his music career Picott is more prolific than ever. He tours constantly throughout the U.S. and Europe playing as many as one hundred and fifty shows a year. Picott also teaches songwriting workshops and has released his poetry debut, God in His Slippers. His newly released collection of short stories, Out Past The Wires, coincides with his next album release of the same title.
