Carrie Rodriguez is the daughter of David Rodriguez, a Texan singer/songwriter.
Violinist, singer and songwriter, Carrie Rodriguez had only one goal in life- ''To get a gig playing fiddle with somebody great, be on the road and make a living.'' Little did she knew that this dream of hers would come true. Once she was performing at the South by Southwest music festival in Austin, Texas in the year 2001. Her fiddle playing really mesmerized the veteran singer-songwriter Chip Taylor. He went up to her and invited to accompany him on some of his tours, that took her to Texas and then to Europe. It was during that time that she was given the golden opportunity to sing. Never before she had sang in lead before, nevertheless, she impressed everyone with her singing ability. As Rodriguez recalls, ''When he hired me, he asked me if I sang back up and I probably said, 'Not really but maybe I could,' because I really wanted the gig and thought it would be a great experience playing fiddle with him. Then he put a microphone in front of me, probably at the first gig, and he said, 'If you feel inspired, here it is.' We didn't work anything out and I started trying things on the road, nothing major".

''Whatever he heard,'' she continues, ''he liked it enough that he wanted to try a duet. He thought it would be something nice to have in the show. He taught me 'Storybook Children' [his 60's hit for Billy Vera & Judy Clay] and that was it. I did it and it scared me to death. I didn't think I was very good but people liked it in the show. It was so foreign, using my voice after so many years of playing the violin. It had been easy for me to hide behind my instrument; I always feel comfortable with it underneath my neck. In high school, if I had to make a speech, I'd have sleepless nights, yet I could get up and play a violin concerto in front of a few hundred people with no problem. Singing was the same: I was really nervous about it, but it just got easier and easier over time. And now I really enjoy doing it. I can't imagine what my life would be like without it.''
