In 1986, Rodman
debuted on the Grand Ole Opry
and recorded her debut album Judy
which produced a number one hit in “Until I Met You” and the Top Ten follow-up “That She’ll Marry.” Her 1987 second album, A Place Called Love
, featured several hits; singles from her upcoming third album were also successful, but her label folded before it came out. She then went back to singing backup and writing songs. In the mid-’90s, Rodman
wrote for Warner-Chappell Music and began making plans for another bid for a new label and stardom.
