Stand-up comedian and comic actor Rodney Carrington grew up in Longview, TX, and attained national exposure via his humorous presence on a number of syndicated morning talk programs. Meanwhile, he constantly toured on the side, thus further broadening his exposure. Crude, earthy, and to the point, his routines dealt with such episodes as dating overweight women, drinking beer, and confronting upper-crust Beverly Hills life with down-home southern attitudes. The sets thus largely appealed to blue-collar audiences. (With his occasionally explicit dialogue and sexual references, he represented something of an edgier alternative to, say, Jeff Foxworthy). One who nearly always toted his guitar with him, Carrington also peppered his routines with straight-faced musical interludes. Early country-flavored comedy recordings included Hangin' with Rodney (1998) and Morning Wood (2000). Following an abortive attempt to launch his own sitcom in 2004 ( Rodney ), Carrington segued into feature films by co-scripting and co-starring in singer/songwriter Toby Keith's country-flavored comedy Beer for My Horses (2008). In that film, he and Keith play Lonnie and Rack (respectively), two law enforcement buddies who go head-to-head with a drug kingpin in an attempt to rescue a kidnapped young woman, despite the admonitions of the local sheriff (Tom Skerritt). ~ Rovi

Rodney Scott Carrington (born October 19, 1968, in Longview, Texas) is an American stand-up comedian, actor, and country music artist. He has released six major-label studio albums and a greatest-hits package, on Mercury Records and Capitol Records. His comedy act typically combines stand-up comedy and original songs. Carrington has also starred in the sitcom “Rodney” and alongside Toby Keith in the 2008 film “Beer for My Horses.” Carrington's first album, “Hangin' with Rodney,” was released in 1998 via Mercury Records Nashville. This album, composed of both standup comedy and original songs, contained the non-charting single "Letter to My Penis" and peaked at #73 on Top Country Albums. He moved to Capitol Nashville for his next album, 2000's “Morning Wood.” It was his first Top 20 album, and it brought him to the singles charts for the first time with "More of a Man," which reached #71 on Hot Country Singles & Tracks (now Hot Country Songs). After it came the live album “Live: C'mon Laugh You Bastards,” which did not chart. Carrington's third release for Capitol was 2003's “Nut Sack.” It included the single "Don't Look Now" which reached #60. A “Greatest Hits”package followed in 2004. This album comprised selections from his Capitol recordings on two discs: stand-up routines on one disc, and songs on the other. It also included his first non-comedy song, "Things We Didn't Know." Also in 2004, Carrington made his acting debut in “Rodney,” a sitcom based largely on his own life which aired on ABC for two seasons. He released “King of the Mountain”s in 2007, and in 2008 he starred alongside singer Toby Keith in the film “Beer for My Horses.” “El Niño Loco,” his sixth Capitol album, was released in 2009. The album is composed entirely of songs, a first for Carrington. This album also includes songs co-written by Keith, as well as a second serious song. Later in 2009, Carrington released his first Christmas album, “Make It Christmas.” The first single from the album, "Camouflage and Christmas Lights" became his first Top 40 country hit in December 2009.

Never before had country music and stand-up comedy been fused together until Rodney Carrington came onto the scene. While he may not have released any any platinum albums, his tour dates have become a popular event among country music audiences and his singles have placed high on the country and comedy charts. While he hasn't released an album since the 2009 smash hit, El Niño Loco, Rodney Carrington is bringing his unique brand up country comedy on the road to tour dates in 2011. Texas born and bred, Carrington began his career performing stand-up locally around Longview. He gained exposure as a frequent guest on The Bob and Tom Show and eventually released his debut album, Hangin' with Rodney, in 1998. The album featured a mix of stand-up tracks and country music tracks which became a huge hit with audiences on subsequent tour dates.

Carrington's subsequent album releases would fair even better by breaking into the top 20 of the Country charts. King of the Mountains and his most recent album, 2009's El Niño Loco, have both reached #2 on the comedy charts and given the artist credibility in both genres. 2008 was a busy year for Carrington, as he co-wrote and co-starred with friend Toby Keith in the hit comedy, Beer for My Horses. He also received a CMT Music Video Award in 2008 for his appliance in the music video for Trace Adkins' "I Got My Game On." Rodney Carrington can currently be found performing months worth of tour dates in 2011, and bringing his signature style of comedy and music to audiences around the US.
