Make it Christmas was Rodney’s first Christmas project, as well as his first serious music release. It is an all song album that perfectly showcases Carrington’s melodic voice and features beautiful traditional tunes, such as “Have Yourself a Merry Little Christmas,” “Winter Wonderland,” “I’ll Be Home For Christmas,” “White Christmas” “Mary Did You Know,” and “Oh Holy Night,” that evoke warm memories of Christmas past. But Rodney also introduced a few new ones that are destined to become classics. “Camouflage and Christmas Lights”, the first single from the album is a touching tribute to our military and enjoyed extensive airplay and climbed the charts on Billboard and Mediabase. Make it Christmas was produced by award winning producer and writer Steve Doff, released in October, 2009.
In 2008, Rodney co-wrote and co-starred in a major motion picture with music star Toby Keith entitled Beer for My Horses.
