The official first day of Summer won’t be the same after Country Music Singer Rockie Lynne heats up the stage at the Piedmont HealthCare Friday After 5 Summer Concert Series on June 21st.
Local favorite, Rockie Lynne has appeared nationally on “Good Morning America,” Fox News Network’s “Fox And Friends,” ABC News and has made many appearances at The Grand Ole Opry. He is also the host of the television program, “Operation Build” which airs on A&E Network. Rockie first made a name for himself when he released his critically acclaimed self-titled debut CD on Universal Records, which received rave reviews by The Associated Press, People Magazine and USA Today, to name a few. His music has been featured in both film and television, including “Fox NFL Sunday,” A&E Network’s “Operation Build” and a recent episode of the CBS Network Primetime crime drama “Criminal Minds.”
Rockie Lynne is a veteran of the United States Army and served for three years in the 82nd Airborne at Fort Bragg, North Carolina. After leaving the military, he started performing and quickly earned an enthusiastic following for his crowd-pleasing live show and his chops as a lead guitarist, eventually landing him a recording contract with Universal Records. His debut single, "Lipstick," spent an impressive 10 consecutive weeks in the #1 slot on Billboard’s Country Singles Sales chart.
His electrifying concert performances, which feature a selection of his hit song and familiar standards, have garnered him a fiercely loyal fan base.
