Ever since he picked up a guitar at age 12 in his hometown of Statesville, NC, playing music has been a central focus of Rockie Lynne’s life. Aside from his time in the Army, Rockie has always been a professional musician. It was inevitable that his talent would eventually attract the attention of industry insiders and in the Fall of 2005, the most powerful man in the music industry, Universal Music Group worldwide Chairman, Doug Morris, saw Rockie perform. Morris signed Rockie to a record contract on the spot. A father of three daughters, Rockie is dedicated and hardworking. He is either writing music (he co-wrote all of the original songs on the new album and his Universal Records debut), making music (in his Nashville based recording studio) or performing music. He has also earned a reputation for being one of the nicest guys in showbiz, always willing to help out and never leaving before shaking the last hand and signing the final autograph. Even in the busiest times, Rockie always finds time to give back. In 2004, he co-founded a Minnesota-base charitable organization called Tribute To The Troops, which recently celebrated its 7th year and has donated over $200,000 to troops related causes. Joining us in the second hour is Richard Lowry, author of New Dawn: The Battles for Fallujah. Richard is also the author of "The Gulf War Chronicles", "US Marine in Iraq: Operation Iraqi Freedom, 2003" and the award winning ""Marines in the Garden of Eden".
