John and Judy Rodman to Release New Americana Album


By Dave Carew

Judy Rodman—the Academy of Country Music Award-winning artist and hit songwriter—and her husband John will release Here We Are, their debut album as a duo, on Tuesday, March 24. John Rodman is an acclaimed drummer/songwriter with thousands of performing credits, from the symphony to amphitheaters to the recording studio to television.

Produced by Judy and John at Mainframe Studios, the album will offer an eclectic mix of Americana sounds, from Memphis blues to pop-infused tunes to funk, culminating with the artful instrumental “Sweet Dreams.”

“This album is bringing us back full circle to who we have been from the beginning, making music together,” says Judy. “At the same time it’s new! We’re doing things we have never done before—writing, recording, and performing as a duo.”

An exclusive listening party will be held at the Nashville Musician’s Union on March 17 at 7:00 p.m. The album will be released worldwide on CD Baby and iTunes one week later.
