Austin, Texas-based Honky-Tonker, Cody Tucker, has been writing songs and playing guitar since the age of 13. Born and raised in a small town outside of Waco, he’d become inspired by ’90’s traditional country, as well as what other Waco natives Pat Green and Ray Wylie Hubbard were doing for Texas Country.
Before Cody could put a foot down in the Texas scene, Uncle Sam would come calling. He would go on to serve 6 years in the United States Army before an injury would lead to a medical retirement. After exiting the Army, he would link up with Texas legend and producer, Eric Mckinney, to help write, record and produce his self-titled debut EP, due to be released later this summer.
Eric Mckinney proclaims “Cody is poised to be a rising Texas country artist, and one to watch over the coming years. With his talent and work ethic, it’s only a matter of time before his name becomes familiar on the Texas-Red Dirt Scene”.
If you were to ask Cody to sum up this debut EP, he’d say “My goal for this record was to make people forget about all of the stress from the daily grind, and for a minute just grab a beer and put on some boots and go honky-tonking.”
Cody has just released his debut single “Bar Room Time” and we’ve got it ready for you to listen to below. His upcoming self-titled debut EP will be released via Texas Time this Summer. Also, be sure to connect with Cody on his website and social media.
