Rod grew up watching his sister sing in church, but he was too shy to participate. Being a larger kid, he ended up spending most of his time playing football. He continued to play in college, but his football dreams were cut short when he had to drop out to take over the family construction business. Without football in his life, Rod felt inspired to start singing, and his family started their own traveling musical ministry. Rod met his wife on the road, and since being married, he has lost over 100 pounds. Rod is ready to give his music career a real shot on "The Voice" stage.
