Rockie Lynne has appeared nationally on “Good Morning America,” CMT, GAC, The Grand Ole Opry “Live” and Fox News. His debut single, “Lipstick,” spent an impressive 10 consecutive weeks in the #1 slot on Billboard’s Country Singles Sales chart.
Lynne first made a name for himself when he released his critically acclaimed self-titled debut CD on Universal Records. He was named a “breakout artist” by ABC-TV’s “Good Morning America.” Billboard Magazine named him their artist “Most Likely To Succeed” and he has made countless media appearances, including performances on GMA’s Summer Concert Series and 14 appearances on the Grand Ole Opry.
With a life long interest in music, this native of Statesville, N.C., has been singing and writing songs since the age of 14. After high school, he joined the Army, where he served for three years in the 82nd Airborne at Ft. Bragg.
After leaving the military, he starting playing clubs and quickly earned an enthusiastic following for his crowd-pleasing live show and his chops as a lead guitarist. Lynne, whose electrifying concert performances have garnered him a fiercely loyal fan base, spent the better part of the last year touring and writing songs for his new album, Songs For Soldiers. One third of the proceeds from the record will benefit troop related charities. The inspiration for the album was his 21-day tour of Afghanistan, Southwest Asia, and The Persian Gulf, where he and his band entertained U.S. troops stationed abroad.
Lynne is co-founder of an annual charity motorcycle ride called TRIBUTE TO THE TROOPS, where riders visit the homes of the families of our fallen soldiers to acknowledge them for having made such an honorable sacrifice. The organization has raised over $200,000 in aid to the familes of the fallen.
