is an eighteen-year-old accomplished country musician hailing from the hills of West Virginia. Cody’s musical ability is only matched by his humble demeanor, and dedication to his craft, which are two traits that are very difficult to maintain. While Cody’s career in music is still fresh, his accomplishments match that of a veteran in the industry. Cody has shared the stage with a plethora of talented individuals, such as Jason Michael Carroll, Slaughter, George Shingleton, Charles W. Godwin, Rick K and the Allnighters and John Moreland. But, of all of his accomplishments his most well-known came in the form of a gold ticket to Hollywood given to him by the judges of ABC’s American Idol.
Many artists would use validation of three yes votes in one of the country’s biggest talent shows to slack off and take a back seat, but not Cody. This opportunity lit a fire in Cody to dedicate much of his time to perfecting his craft and begin his journey as a professional singer/songwriter. Shortly after his trip to Hollywood, Cody began working with a group of highly talented musicians and producers to help produce his first single “I Will Sing” which first debuted on May 24th, 2019. Cody utilized his time with these individuals and honed in on his songwriting abilities which then led him to his next big achievement; reaching the semifinal round of Nashville Rising Song.
Cody’s passion for country music is heightened by the artists that he looks up to such as the immensely talented Chris Stapleton, Cody Jinks, and the wildly popular Luke Combs. However, Cody isn’t just a one trick pony as he loves performing just about any genre of music and does so expertly. You can find Cody playing all over the great state of West Virginia and beyond by following all of his social media outlets and keeping up to date with his performance calendar.
As a West Virginia native, Cody works diligently to make his home state proud and succeeds in his efforts with every performance, every song, and every note.
