Cody spent a lot of his free time in the last 20 years or so making country demo tapes in Tucson, hoping to join some local band as a singer and guitarist, and in the meantime he kept his day job in sales. But every demo seemed to be some song that he had heard a lot of, and he always felt like he was doing somebody else’s interpretation. It wasn’t until he met the songwriter brothers, Kentworth Edel and J. Craig Edel, that he felt he had found the ballad material that fit his voice and his personality. “These guys don’t write happy songs,” Cody says, “but then I don’t much like singing happy songs. I don’t have a happy voice.” Cody believes there are really only two good kinds of country song: “Either you’re low on money, or you’re low on love. The Edel brothers write the low-on-love songs. These songs aren’t grim, and they don’t ask for pity, but they don’t end with any sort of happy twist, either. You start out mellow because your girl is gone, and you stay that way.”
