Hello out there!
This is Johnny.  I just want to say that I appreciate all of  
you who stay in touch with MaryJane.  She has always
been a great friend and help for me.
I also thank all of you who are going to "Amazon", and
getting my new double CD called "The Definitive Years".
I look forward to coming to your area soon.
Johnny Rodriguez.

My latest album pictured

Years, is also available at  It is a
2-CD set.
Due to health reasons, the Trail Ride has been postponed.

Johnny Rodriguez will soon embark on a new adventure, something he has thought
about and wanted to do for many years.  On his birthday, December 10, 2015, Johnny
will leave Laredo, TX bound for Houston, TX.  What makes this adventure noteworthy
is the fact that Johnny will be riding horseback.  He is allowing himself 30 days to
make the trip.  He will be joined along the trip with area musicians and when the
group arrives in a small town at nightfall, the guitars will come out and a concert will
begin.  No motels for this group; they will be sleeping under the stars. To bring
awareness for the Wounded Warriors, Johnny will also be accompanied by a Green
Beret friend.  Johnny will be getting sponsors, who will be announced later, to help
with this endeavor .  This event will be tracked and locations posted.    This is a first- -
- no other artist has ever made a journey such as this.

A lot is happening in the life and career of Johnny Rodriguez and you can track it all,
right here at
Rodriguez Rides With Warriors (Across Texas)
I want to throw out a BIG THANK YOU to my fans and friends who have
remembered me with prayers, cards and gifts. I hope to see you soon. Love to you
An update on the Trail Ride.......
A website has been established to keep us posted and updated.
The previous J-Rod Merchandise page on Facebook will remain open until the
Trail Ride begins. Then the Trail Ride website, will take the place of the Merchandise
FB page for ordering merchandise.  Two new t-shirts and caps will soon be
available on this new website.  
Due to many requests from people who go to school throughout the school
year, Johnny has decided that the Trail Ride will begin shortly after school is
Good news!!
A movie of my life is in the planning/casting stages at this time.  Erv
Woolsey is helping me put the pieces together, along with other friends.
I am excited about this. A lot is going on in my life right now including the
Wounded Warrior
Ride which will take place in early summer.
I I'll keep you informed on the different stages of the movie.
I appreciate all of you who come to my shows and also those who aren't
able to attend.  I have had a very supportive fan base all these years and
I am so appreciative of you.

My good friend, Terry Burford, who was inducted into the Disk Jockey Hall of Fame in
2001, and is now at Radio Station KZHE in Magnolia, Arkansas, does a monthly
conversation with Johnny Western about memories of country music artists. This
month's conversation was about Johnny Rodriguez.  This is a 30 minute conversation
and is available at Radio Station KZHE.  I corrected Terry after the conversation to let
him know that Johnny is booked by Carrie Reed Moore of Third Coast Talent in
Nashville area, and that I do the Official Johnny Rodriguez Music website.
I hope you all will enjoy the memories that Terry and Johnny Western have of Johnny
