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.
Ask Eric Mckinney his thoughts on Cody Tucker and he’d tell you, “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.”
