During his career, Rhodes has played alongside musicians such as Brian Wilson of the Beach Boys, Dolly Parton, the Dixie Chicks, Faith Hill, Reba McEntyre, Wynonna Judd, and Doug Stone. During the past decade, he has worked with artists such as Toby Keith, Gretchen Wilson, Kenney Chesney, Willie Nelson, and Ray Price.
