Cody Parks and The Dirty South
Cody Parks and The Dirty South
Cody Parks and The Dirty South aren't your typical Nashville country act. They can better be described as "Def Leppard on cornbread." Inspired by the likes of Motley Crue and Ratt, these boys blend their country roots with their love for 80's metal. They released two debut singles in January of 2019. The opening riff for their new single titled "The Other Side" takes you back to the Sunset Strip in 1987. The lyric takes you to the middle of nowhere Georgia. The other half of their debut release is a cranked up take on John Anderson's "Seminole Wind," and indeed does it crank. In May, the band released a live project titled “Live from the Emergency Room,” recorded “live” at The Emergency Room Studio in Nashville, TN. That project was released on the anniversary of when Dirty South guitar player, Clint Richardson, was shot during a robbery attempt the previous year. Check 'em out on Spotify, iTunes, and all other digital music outlets . . . and when you do . . . PLAY IT LOUD!!!
Dawson Edwards
Dawson Edwards
At the age of 14, Dawson bought his first guitar at a local pawn shop in his hometown of Rome, GA. Shortly after, he was playing local restaurants and bars making a name for himself while still in high school. After graduation, Dawson got a job at Capitoline Inc. building counter tops to save up the money to make the move to Nashville to pursue a career in country music. At 19, he made the move to Nashville, and got a job working night shift loading trucks at UPS to make ends meet, while writing during the day. In 2016, he was selected to be in ASCAP’s GPS program, which allowed him to work closely with Nashville publishers and writers. In December of 2017, Dawson signed an exclusive worldwide publishing agreement with BMG Nashville. You can hear Dawson’s blue collar, middle class mans point of view; love for God, Family, and the Red, White and Blue through out all of his songs. His style of writing and high energy stage presence draws a diverse crowd at every show. Find Dawson on Spotify, iTunes, and all other digital music outlets.
