Chris Rodriguez

Our guest is one of the hardest working musicians and singers today. For over a decade, you’ve heard Chris Rodriguez adding his rich background vocals to studio and live performances for Shania Twain, Kenny Loggins, Michael McDonald, Billy Joel, Wynonna, and many others. But don’t underestimate his vocal versatility — he’s just finished laying down backing tracks for MegaDeth’s latest project and is currently touring with Kenny Loggins. He’s also ready to go on the road with Country Mega-star Keith Urban for a year. Chris is Nashville’s most sought after backing vocalists because he can sing anything. He’s blessed with incredible vocal range and even delivered a solo project recently. This only confirms this man’s talent. And, did we mention that he is an incredible guitarist? Inside MusiCast welcomes the talented Chris Rodriguez.

Some thought: Meeting Chris was one of the golden experiences for me. If you dig into his work, and really study it, you'll find that he is one of the best in the industry. His mastering of the backing vocal craft is leaves me boggled. He can actually mold his sound to the need...take the time and listen. You'll see what I mean. But, you'll need to concentrate and really listen. Simply amazing.e

Hello,I have just listened to a portion of the Chris Rodriguez interview. It is wonderful. What a wonderful podcast!!Thank you so much for the interview with Chris Rodriguez. As a fan of Kenny Loggins, I can't tell you how thrilling it is when you walk into the venue and see that Chris Rodriguez is there!!! He is amazing and they are amazing together.

I am writing because fortunately a fan of Keith Urban and Kenny Loggins posted a note about the interview. She will be posting a link to your site and the Keith Urban fan site tomorrow so that people can find the podcast.

I plan to download the Chris Rodriquez podcast, then the Freddy Washington podcast. Then I plan to subscribe--I have dial-up so it takes a good while to download. That is why I have only listened to a portion of the Chris Rodriguez interview.

Please don't forget us Kenny Loggins fans when you interview present and former band mates okay? And BTW we would love it if you interview Kenny!!! Okay, I know your focus is behind the music but I thought it might be worth try!!

Thank you so much for making these interviews available!!!

How do I get in touch with Chris? I went to high school with him and played drums with his younger brother. He was a tremendous talent back then and it's great that he's been so successful. Thank you.

Charles, We'll pass your information on to Chris. I'm sure he'll want so say hi. So, tell me about his brother...was it in a band or a school thing?e

Chris's interview was awesome. It was interesting to hear about his career in his own words.I really enjoyed the interview.Thanks.

The Podcast was great. I like the fact that you finally get to hear the musicians who help make an entertainer what they are.

Also, wanted to make a comment about Chris. I met Chris in Atlanta and would like to say thanks to him for not only a being great musician, but a wonderful and considerate person. You took so much time out of your busy schedule to talk, sign autographs and take pictures with myself and my 2 daughters. We adore you. When going to a Keith Urban concert, we very much look forward to seeing you and hearing you play. You are definitely a class act.

THANK YOU for a wonderful interview. It's so rare that one gets to listen to an interview with intelligent questions and interesting answers to those questions. You guys ROCK. I was mesmerized the first time I listened! What a wonderful gift for Chris Rodriguez fans. He is an amazing musician, and it was so great to hear his take on things. Thanks again for one of the most interesting interviews I have ever heard.

I also wanted to say thank-you for the great interview with Chris. I had the opportunity to talk to him about music a year or so ago and I know he is a huge Beatles fan, as I am having grown up in England in the sixties. It was especially interesting to hear him mention the Yardbirds and the Kinks, both of whom I was lucky enough to see live.

Thanks to both of you and to Chris of course for bringing back some great memories!!

Was wondering if you could help me contact Chris by forwarding this message. I met Chris this past summer, in Soo Michigan, after Keith's concert. Chris indulged my request for an autograph for a favourite uncle, "Uncle Rich", who had just purchased a Deering Banjo. Chris spent time sharing information about the instrument, and then we slipped right into conversation about our most common interest...our kids.After the concert I located a copy of Chris's CD, Beggars Paradise, and have since been immersed in the music and lyrics. It's a beautiful and timely merging of Chris's love of faith, family and music. The CD has come to have great meaning for me, and travels between my home, car and work. My uncle treasures the autograph, which he keeps beside his Deering, and he and my aunt continue to enjoy their Beggars Paradise CD, which I gave them. I was able to find two more copies of the CD for friends for Christmas. At this time of year I wanted to thank Chris again for sharing his gift with all of us, and specifically for sharing his time with me Michigan.

Peace to you and your family Chris.

Hi,Chris Rodriguez is an awesome musician, quite genious if you ask me. I saw him on a MWS music video from the 80's and saw him live in the Heart in Motion concert for Amy Grant. Yeah I have never in my life seen such an awesome guitarist- real soul and genious. He has influenced my own guitar playing hugely. His voice is also amazing.

I was going to say- Chris it would be awesome to see you do a solo guitar album of the likes of Steve Vai or something... Are you going to do another album.Stick close to God too! Have you a myspace?

This interview was so great, and all of us who have had the chance to meet Chris, or are fans of him, appreciate his realness,talent, and humor so much! Thank-you for this, I'll be sure to check in for more interviews.

March 27, 2007 | Unregistered Commentertrish phillips
Trish,So many people wish to get their hands on the CD, but I think it's out of print and Chris doesn't own the rights. He mentioned to us before the interview that his label owns the project...thus the out-of-print status of Beggar's Paradise. Sorry. I wish you luck....there's got to be one available somewhere. Great album.
