Cody Purvis sometimes walks down Music City’s famed Lower Broad listening to the myriad of songs pouring onto the historic street. Like thousands of other music lovers who flock there, he finds himself drawn to the “real country music.” “I love walking down Broadway and thinking about all the real country singers who have walked that same street. Those are the people who are my musical influences.” The Charlottesville, Virginia native’s earliest memories are of listening to his parents as they performed in country music bands. “I wanted to follow in their footsteps and real country music was something that rang true for me. I know there’s still a demand for it. I want to provide for that demand. Those listeners are my audience.”
Cody will provide just that as a cast member on the inaugural season of USA Network’s, “Real Country” where he will mentor under Country Super Stars, Jake Owen, Travis Tritt and the Legendary Shania Twain.
