MY STORY

HIS STORY

58 (1).jpg

Cody Carter, a rising talent in San Diego’s country music scene, is poised to steal your heart with his soulful tunes. A 2024 San Diego Music Awards nominee for Best Country Song, Cody’s passion for music transcends mere notes and chords. 

  • A Journey of Love and Legacy: Cody’s journey began long before the spotlight found him. His father’s poignant words after witnessing a live performance still echo in his soul: “Kid, don’t ever abandon this music dream. You’ve got something extraordinary to share.” Those words, etched in memory, fueled Cody’s unwavering commitment to his craft. The birth of his son and daughter further ignited his musical fire, a legacy passed down from father to son.

  • From Iowa Highways to California Dreams: Picture young Cody, riding shotgun in his dad’s red pickup truck, Alan Jackson’s cassette tape spinning on repeat. Those Iowa highways carried more than just miles—they carried the seeds of Cody’s musical destiny. His eclectic taste—from Jackson Browne to Willie Nelson—shaped his soul, infusing country and rock 'n roll into his veins.

  • The Black Guitar and the Eagles’ Legacy: At 23, Cody took fate into his own hands. Armed with an old black guitar (a nod to Don Henley’s iconic instrument), he embarked on a musical odyssey. The Eagles’ “Hell Freezes Over” tour had left an indelible mark, and Cody was determined to create magic of his own.

  • San Diego’s Musical Oasis: Now a proud Southern California resident, Cody graces San Diego’s most sought-after live music venues. His country band, Ramblin’ Fever, boasts an all-star lineup: Nick Steckel (steel guitar), Cheyne Dolly (drums), Aaron Hook (bass), and Steven Crowle (electric guitar). They’ve carved out a residency at bars where country fans two-step their cares away.

  • Setlist Magic: A Blend of Nostalgia and Freshness: When Cody takes the stage, expect a musical journey. His setlist weaves originals, timeless classics, and fresh hits from today’s chart-toppers. Whether it’s a heartfelt ballad or a boot-stomping anthem, Cody’s voice resonates with authenticity.

  • Cody’s latest single, “Play Me One More”, is making waves. Produced by the talented Mike Butler, this no-nonsense track captures the essence of late country nights and was featured on Whiskey Riff’s New Country Music Friday’s playlist alongside heavyweights like Cody Johnson, Jason Aldean, Corey Kent, and Toby Keith.

  • Join the Journey: Cody Carter isn’t just an artist; he’s a storyteller, a keeper of memories, and a bridge between generations. So, grab your cowboy boots, feel the rhythm, and let Cody’s melodies transport you to a place where the heart sings louder than words.
