Rocke has appeared on several radio & media outlets and is considering several television show appearances such as WMUR Channel 9 where the song that he wrote has become a favorite of listeners and call in shows. Justin Tyler, the program director for KIXX 100.5 FM radio recently interviewed Sony ATV songwriter Gary Rocke on his radio program. Here are some excerpts:
Q: Gary, what was going through your mind the first time you heard your song on today’s Contemporary country radio stations?
A: Although I had played the song hundreds of times, hearing it on the radio was a major adrenaline rush. Over the past 20 years, I have made many trips to Nashville and worked with a lot of people.
Q: Who helped you with this release?
A: My friend Robert Metzgar has a wonderful company in Nashville to help new songwriters break through with their songwriting careers. Robert helped me get the song placed and out on his record label. *See http://www.robertmetzgar.com
Q: Back Road Pickers is a song that our radio audience really likes and our radio stations appreciate you allowing us to preview the song here for the first time in the NE.
A: I am here to help support the Victory Motorcycle event sponsored by Shaker Valley Auto. We want to get people involved in supporting “David’s House” and the children at Children’s Hospital at Dartmouth. I am joining with other country music stars like Craig Morgan, Tracy Byrd and Doug Stokes in lending a hand.
Along with the WOLF 95.3, I am joining Shaker Valley Auto as an annual sponsor of this charity. I appreciate each and every fan that has called the radio stations and asked them to play one of my songs. Recently, on September 11th, I was chosen out of tens of thousands of songwriters to have a song on the 9/11 memorial release. Our song “Because They Gave” was featured on a special disc time stamped for the 9/11 Memorial services. * See http://www.capitolmanagement.com

He has meetings scheduled with some of Nashville’s star makers and will also be taking meetings with Executives in the songwriting community. The recent success of his songs has caused his profile as a major songwriter to be placed at the forefront of songpluggers for 2012.
