A musician and songwriter at heart, Rock has recently written and recorded two original songs in the style of Johnny Cash......
"Black Cadillac" and
"9 Years, 9 Months and 13 Days"

Working with Dolly Parton was a highlight of Rock's career! He met many talented people while touring the country. Another memorable moment was when he had the opportunity to meet screen star
