|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,
