    The son of a welder from rural New England, Rod Picott is a masterful songwriter and soulful singer who carries with him as fine a suitcase of songs as you'll find anywhere. Slaid Cleaves, Ray Wylie Hubbard and Fred Eagelsmith have recorded Rod Picott songs. A former construction worker who hung up his tools when he released his debut CD in 2000, Picott has carved a career for himself with a run of 6 beautifully crafted self released CDs over the last 13 years and a well earned reputation as a engaging, emotion fueled performer. Hang Your Hopes On Crooked Nail, produced by RS Field [Billy Joe Shaver, Justin Townes Earle, Hayes Carll] is a collection of carefully crafted songs of rugged truth and beauty. Recorded at Joe Pisapia's [KD Lang, Guster] Middletree Studios in East Nashville the CD highlights Picott's particular gift for exploring complex themes in common language. The eleven songs on Hang Your Hopes On a Crooked Nail offer an unblinking albeit wry gaze into our common heart and a clenched fist of defiance against the trials that tear at our humanity. 2014 was a wonderful year for Rod Picott’s Circus of Misery and Heartbreak. Here are a fistful of highlights from the many… Hang Your Hopes On A Crooked Nail reached #22 on the Americana Music Association Airplay Chart and nestled in the top 40 for 8 weeks making it one of the 100 most played albums of the year. The Broken Jukebox website named Hang Your Hopes On A Crooked Nail the #5 album of 2014. In NYC Rod played parked in an illegal spot for several hours while playing a show and didn't get a ticket. May 09, Rod played The Fire Room at Picks Gallery...and he's returning for 2015!!
