The Kody Norris Show
FRIDAY : 3PM & 9PM
Whatever you do, don't call The Kody Norris Show 'retro'.
Because while the reigning SPBGMA Entertainers of the Year are known for the rhinestones that shine from their lapels and the fringe that hangs from their collars seem to conjure up memories of times gone by, The Kody Norris Show are very much directing their gaze forever forward.
In fact, it’s those fans that have raised The Kody Norris Show to a place in which they stand today, a place where the four-piece, multi-instrumentalist, bluegrass band are quickly becoming four of the most epic entertainers of our time. Add that to the songwriting displayed on the Kody Norris-penned “Baltimore I’m Leaving,” “Fiddler’s Rock,” “Please Tell Me Why,” and the infectious “Gotta Get My Baby Back” on Rhinestone Revival, and there is no doubt that The Kody Norris Show is as current as ever.
While opening for “The Queen of Bluegrass,” Rhonda Vincent at the Ryman Auditorium for Bluegrass Nights at the Ryman, sponsored by Springer Mountain Farms, The Kody Norris Show was surprised by Vincent with an invitation to make their Grand Ole Opry debut.
