Sam Pacetti

Sam Pacetti grew up in North Florida, hardly known as a hotbed of either the folk tradition or musical innovation. At age 13 he found the music of both Chet Atkins and Merle Travis, profound influences on his early musical development. Then fate intervened shortly afterward in the person of Gamble Rogers, the legendary picker and raconteur from St Augustine who took the young Pacetti under his wing.

Word has started to spread about Sam Pacetti. And as with anything truly innovative, it starts at the grass roots. You won't see Pacetti written up in People or Us. You won't hear his music on Top-40 radio. No, word is spreading about Sam Pacetti the way true innovation always does - through the grassroots. Through non-commercial radio and "specialty show" play.

Slaid Cleaves, Ray Wylie Hubbard and Fred Eagelsmith have recorded Rod Picott songs. A former construction worker, he hung up his tools when he released his debut CD in 2000.Rod has released 6 beautifully crafted self released CDs over the last 14 years and enjoys a well earned reputation as an engaging and emotion fueled performer.
