This favored son of Texas has received standing ovations by audiences ranging from Ryman Auditorium to Carnegie Hall. He has been honored with the presence of Presidents of the United States including Jimmy Carter and Bill Clinton and playing the Inaugural Ball for George Bush.
Johnny's style brings the Hispanic communities and country music together with his bilingual songs. Rodriguez has been high-lighted for his contributions and place in music's traditions and history.
His debut album, "Introducing Johnny Rodriguez", went to #1 on all three major trade charts and by 1973 he was nominated by the Country Music Association for "Male Vocalist of the Year" and won the Billboard Trend Setter Award for first Mexican-American to capture a national audience.
