Cody Joe Hodges’ music has been described as “real country”, highly influenced by the country greats of the 80’s & 90’s.
With a high-energy performance and his brazos bottom drawl, it is rare that you will find someone who reaches across the aisle to both the old and new generations, but Cody Joe does it every time. His voice ranges from silky smooth to raspy seduction. His sound something out of the past, and writing style of the here and now.
You’ll hear a hint of Brazos-bottom dirt in the voice that sets the tone for Cody Joe Hodges’ sound. He’s a “real country" singer who was raised in the honky-tonk and hole in the wall's of Central and East-Central Texas. He now resides in Nashville, gigs around town and tours nationally with his band year-round.
(Banjo - ready to roll)
As an independent artist, Cody Joe is well on his way to finding his place in today's country music world. His last recording, “Roll That Way”, a Bernie Nelson/Rick Huckaby tune (Texas Regional Radio Report - top 30 hit) has become a dancehall favorite, packing the dance floor with many hearing it for the first time. He also released a patriotic song recently, which connected with fans, “God, Family & Country”.
While his sound is more on the traditional side of country music, with recorded originals like ‘Rush’, ‘Hellbent on Loving You’, ‘Reasons’, and his new single, a cover of ‘House of the Rising Sun’, it’s clear to see some of the Red Dirt/Rockin' influence.
He’s released several singles in the last few years and is currently working on a new album of gathered material
Hodges averages close to 150 shows a year, putting on several thousands of miles, honing his craft and serenading country fans. Currently traveling across America, he performs solo & full band shows at various venues, festivals & private events.
