Product Description

Product Description

2014 release from the singer/songwriter. 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. 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 six 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 A 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 Middletree Studios in East Nashville, the CD highlights Picott's particular gift for exploring complex themes in common language.

Probably the most complete album to be released by RP I have had it on constant repeat since it arrived through the Kickstarter sponsorship of the album, no bad or weak stuff here all very enjoyable especially after a couple of listens recommended great if you like Sam Baker, Hayes Carll or Jeffrey Foucault a must for all Americana fans

Rod is a natural storyteller and his songs reflect this as does his 20 odd years he spent in the construction industry.
He sings about his first own place in a mobile home and dreams of going some place where no one knows my name in another,
There's references to dogs and cars - Falcon and breaking up with his girl,
A great well crafted CD

HASH(0x9ab43174) out of 5 stars Maybe people will finally start paying notice because of this album 26 May 2014
By Pennsylvania Frank - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Audio CD
One of, if not THE best overall album in Rod's catalog, and the new producer gets some of the credit. Somehow the songs - even when the lyrics are depressing - don't come across as such total downers, as I thought was the case with the last album, "Welding Burns." The writing is always solid, but the overall musical effort is just stronger this time. "65 Falcon" is truly entertaining, but "Where No One Knows My Name" and "All the Broken Parts" are great songs, too, and there's not a loser in the batch. Take a listen, at least buy some of the songs, and look for Rod Picott playing in your area, because he's worth seeing/hearing in person, too.

First heard him a couple nights ago. The first song I heard was "All the broken parts" Decided I would check him out, sure am glad I did. All I can say is "GREAT" Love this album and will definitely get more. Well worth it.
HASH(0x9ab4c558) out of 5 stars Very good Rod effort 14 Nov. 2014

Very good Rod effort. May be my new favorite. I wish he would put that G-D thing he does away and quit using it though then I'd go five.
