For more than a decade, Rodney Parker and his band 50 Peso Reward have been mixing together country and rock to create a sound all their own.

Rodney stopped by KETR to spend an hour with Matt Meinke, discussing everything from the band's origins, to his family ties to East Texas, and the fine line he draws between creative control of his music and the "standards" for getting airplay on commercial radio.

More about Rodney Parker and 50 Peso Reward is available on their website, Facebook, and Twitter.

Originally broadcast on August 26, 2014. Notably Texan airs weekdays Noon-3pm on KETR.
