CODY WAYNE began this morning with the news of FOUR nominations for the upcoming Texas Country Music Association Awards 2017. Cody garnered nods as Entertainer of the Year, Male Vocalist, Country Group of the year, single of the year Fly High. Cody’s very own Billy Rasnake has taken the honored of being nominated as Drummer of the year.
A full-blown country-red dirt-high energy concert.  These musicians raise the bar high and bring a party with every song. They're wildly talented, energetic and thrive on entertaining crowds of all ages.
That's how fans describe a night with Cody Wayne.
Wayne’s latest single Fly High, by far his best yet, builds on the success of his previous releases and proves that his rich musical mine has only begun to be tapped. Fly High has remained on the Top 50 Country Charts for 6 months as of this week.

As with his new single to debut in August Addicted, Cody is determined to give the fans at his shows the most for their hard-earned money. “My main thing is to keep upping the ante and upping the sound and staying creative,” Cody says adamantly. “I don’t want to give the fans the same thing show after show. I want to give them something they’ll come back to for years and years to come.”

For all he has achieved—and it’s plenty—Cody remains steadfast in what’s important to him: family. “I can’t be happier in life than when I’ve got my family with me and I get to go out and do shows for a living,” says Cody.  “The only negative about this is business is being away from your family, so when they’re out on the road with me, the negatives are removed and it’s nothing but positives.”

As important as these award is, Cody says his life is filled with humbled moments. “Every night that I’m performing it is a pinch me moment,” he says humbly. “When a fan comes up to me because they recognized me is a pinch me moment. I tend to have a lot of humble moments. There’s a lot of amazing stuff coming my way and I try to remember it and appreciate it.”
