Dodd Ferrelle

Fox Theatre Revival #1901

What could get us out of semi-retirement more than a member of R.E.M. playing our favorite venue? Nothing! Grab your tickets to the Fox Theatre Revival, hosted by Kevn Kinney of Drivin N Cryin. The show happens Friday 9/13/19 at the fabulous Fox Theatre in Atlanta, Georgia.

Drive-By Truckers, Michelle Malone, and Dodd Ferrelle and the Councilmen featuring Bill Berry of R.E.M. join special guests to raise money for the historic Fox Theatre Institute. The Fox Theatre Institute funds historic preservation at venues across the Southeast, including the Winterville (GA) Auditorium and spaces in Abbeville, Cheraw, and Dillon, South Carolina. They recently started a hurricane recovery fund for historic performing arts places.

Enjoy our quick conversation with Country Fried Rock alum, Dodd Ferrelle, about the Institute and the event!


Dodd Ferrelle: If You Were A Jellybean

Our alum, Dodd Ferrelle, has a children’s book, If You Were A Jellybean.

If You Were a Jelly Bean is a fun, interactive book that parents and children of all ages can complete together. Have fun learning about animals, colors and more while learning a little bit about each other. We hope you enjoy finishing this book as much as we enjoyed leaving it unfinished… As an added bonus you will receive an mp3 of the song “My Favorite.” “My Favorite” is the second song on the CD Happy Hands released by The Happy Hands Band in 2012.

Songwriter/Author and singer in The Happy Hands Band, Dodd Ferrelle wrote the song “My Favorite” after coming up with the idea for the book If You Were A Jelly Bean. Dodd’s wife Cameron had the pleasure of illustrating the book.

Dodd Ferrelle “Suckerpunch Town”

New video from one of my Personal Picks of 2012: Dodd Ferrelle’s Suckerpunch Town!

We had a blast filming this video and sneaking around downtown in the wee
hours on one of my favorite streets in Athens. Director Jeff Marker’s
vision and story really came alive for us in those few hours as I hope it
does for you in the next few minutes. I really did get beat up pretty
good there at the end. I had the bruises to prove it.

I would like to thank Director Jeff Marker and everyone at Late Fall
Productions as well as the following cast of characters and crew;
Jonathan Hickman (director of photography, camera operator, editor), David
Smith (camera operator), Kevin Eagleson (production assistant), Alicia
Marker (producer), Myron Tucker (Pusher man), Amy Severson (Leftwing
religious nut), Jeff Marshall (Right-wing religious nut), Joelle Re-Arp
Dunham (Siren), Adam Poulin (Homeless Violinist), Sean Polite (Thug 1),
and Eric Gregory (Thug 2).
