Former Husband – Rodney Carrington
Rodney began his career as a stand-up comedian, performing in venues in Texas which helped him gain the opportunity to work as a guest on several radio programs. One of the programs that increased his exposure was “The Bob and Tom Show”, which was a syndicated program enjoying a lot of popularity as well as frequent recognition from the National Association of Broadcasters.
In 1998, he had his big break when he was signed to Mercury Records Nashville. The company is under Universal Music Group, Nashville, which is the country music subsidiary of the organization.
He released his first album entitled “Hangin’ with Rodney” in 1998, which composed of original songs as well as stand-up comedy, and reached 73rd spot on the Top Country Albums chart. He then moved to Capital Nashville for his next project, and in 2000 released the album “Morning Wood”, which would become his first top 20 album, and he entered the singles charts for the first time with his song “More of a Man”.
Afterwards, he worked on the live album entitled “C’mon Laugh You Bastards”.
Rodney’s Latter Career
In 2003, Rodney released his third project for Capitol entitled “Nut Sack”, composed mostly of songs as opposed to stand-up sketches; his song entitled “Don’t Look Now” reached 60th spot on the charts. The following year, out came a “Greatest Hits” album on two discs – one had stand-up comedy while the other had songs.
Afterwards, he made his acting debut in the sitcom entitled “Rodney”, which aired on ABC for two seasons, largely based on his life.
In 2007, he released his next album – “King of the Mountains”, and the following year he continued his acting work with an appearance in “Beer for My Horses”. The film is based on the Toby Keith song of the same name, and Rodney was credited as a co-writer. It was shot in Las Vegas, New Mexico and made over $670,000 in its limited box office release.
His next project was a single entitled “Angel Friend”, which is one of his few serious songs, and talks about his best friend who passed away suddenly. In 2009, he released his sixth studio album – “El Nino Loco” – which was his final release for Capital Records. He then released his first Christmas album which found some success.
Personal Life and Social Media
For her personal life, it is known that Terri met Rodney when they were both students at university in the 1990s. They married in 1993, and have three children. It was during the time when Rodney had not yet found success in his comedy career, but with his increasing success and the lack of time spent with the family, the strain on their marriage proved unbearable, leading to Terri filing for divorce in 2011.
The couple agreed to share custody over their three children, while settlement details have been kept away from the public.
One of the reasons why there is very limited information is that she doesn’t have accounts on any of the major social media websites, preferring to keep her privacy. There has been no news or information about her following their divorce, and it is not known if she has remarried or is in a new relationship at the very least. Her ex-husband hasn’t remarried either, apparently focused on furthering his career.
