Cody, a phenomenally talented singer songwriter, worked his way through all of the levels of auditioning to be the next American Idol and now has a one way golden ticket to Hollywood! This past week here at AWG, Cody was able to take a moment out of his increasingly busy schedule to pay us a visit at our home office. He was accompanied by his wonderfully supportive mother and father, who emanated an immense amount of pride for their son and his accomplishments. Cody was gracious enough to sit down in our showroom and play a few tunes, which was a well appreciated treat for us during our work day. The pride his parents felt is 100% warranted as I can confidently say, Cody has a serious set of pipes on him!
