PERRY Co., Ky. (WYMT) - The Lifetime cable network's new show "Chasing Nashville" deputed on Tuesday night.

"Joyful Adventure" is Hall's original song and is featured on the show.

His wife, Deborah Hall, said this all just happened by coincidence after performing at the Hillbilly Days Festival.

"When we first came off the stage these ladies came up to us and said they'd like to talk to us about our music," said Deborah.

The next thing you know Deborah said the cameras were rolling.

"I just think it's amazing they're going to be on television and that somebody's going to know what talent we actually have right in our backdoor," Deborah said.

Rodney said it took him one year to perfect his handcrafted flutes.

He said he is excited this reality show is highlighting some of our regions talent.

"Once people watch the show they'll see what great talent we have here," said Rodney. "It seems like it's part of our nature here just to play music."

Chasing one's dreams, Rodney said he hopes others can share in his passion for music.
