Rodney Edmonson started drumming early. He was playing gigs by his early teens in his native Virginia. His first thought was to become a music teacher or band director until he came to the realization that he'd rather play than teach after his first year of college. He soon found himself relocating to Nashville where he began his journey trying to make a living as a drummer. On episode 075, Rodney and Jamie discuss his early years, making the move to Nashville, playing the Grand Old Opry dozens of times with The Whites, and landing his current gig 27 years ago. Rodney has toured and recorded with Country Music Hall of Fame inductee Ronnie Milsap since 1992 playing Ronnie's legendary catalog of music. Rodney offers some great advice on what it takes to break into the Nashville scene by relaying his experience and knowledge. His playing has been heard by millions around the world and Rodney is a living testament to good guys winning in the music business.
