Cody Joe Hodges’ music has been described as “real country”, influenced by some of the country greats from the late 70’s, 80’s & 90’s – George Strait, Merle Haggard, Johnny Cash, Waylon Jennings, Alan Jackson, Garth Brooks and Willie Nelson (just to name a few). With his thrilling, high-energy performance, it is rare that you will find someone that reaches across the aisle to both the old and new generations, but Cody Joe Hodges does it every time. Cody Joe Hodges’ voice ranges from silky smooth to raspy seduction. His sound is something out of the past with a writing style of the here and now.
Cody Joe Hodges started playing music at an early age, but it wasn’t until his senior year in high school that he became serious about his art. His first song to write was “Daddy’s Dream”, his freshman year, while living in the dorms at Texas A&M University. Not long after graduating from Texas A&M in 2006, he had a short stay in Nashville and decided to “get away from music”, moved back to Texas and eventually joined the Army.
While in the Army, (duty station, Fort Carson), he was picked up to perform in the group “Harmony in Motion”, while discovered playing music on a street corner in Colorado Springs with a homeless man. After auditioning with “Daddy’s Dream” & “Star Spangled Banner”, they extended an offer to join them, and Cody Joe began traveling across America playing for large entertainment venues.
