Growing up in the mountains of East Tennessee and sharing a birthday with the great Earl Scruggs, maybe it was written in the stars for Kody Norris, who founded his band The Kody Norris Show more than a decade ago.

Kody’s musical journey began when he was around ten years old with a used mandolin, a gift from his parents. Growing up in East Tennessee, a region steeped in traditional music, Kody was bitten by the bluegrass bug, and quickly added guitar, banjo, and bass to his repertoire. From the age of 15, Kody pursued his interest in the music business: working as a sideman and studio musician, teaching music lessons, and serving as an emcee. Being a multi-instrumentalist and versatile singer opened doors to many opportunities including playing with Ralph Stanley, Ralph Stanley II, and Joe Isaacs. A chance meeting with Campbell Mercer, executive producer of the Cumberland Highlanders Show on the RFD-TV network, led to a 9-year stint for Kody playing guitar on that show.

Kody learned early the strong musical legacy of Johnson County, Tennessee, home to musicians including Clint Howard, Fred Price and Clarence “Tom” Ashley; the first group to tour with Doc Watson during the folk revival of the 1960s. The first recording of “House of the Rising Sun” was created in Johnson County by Tom Ashley in the 1930s. Tom Dooley (of the oft-recorded folk murder ballad) was captured there by another resident of the county, Col. James Grayson.

In 2006, Kody distilled his years of varied experience into founding his own band, Kody Norris and the Watauga Mountain Boys, with a desire to build on the inspirations of his youth, including the music of Bill Monroe, Ralph Stanley, Jimmy Martin, Jim and Jesse, and others. In 2015, the group rebranded as The Kody Norris Show.

As weekly hosts of the famous Farm and Fun Time Noon Show, broadcast from the Birthplace of Country Music Museum and Radio Bristol, The Kody Norris Show is the only artist to hit over 5 million views collectively. They’ve been part of the University of Chicago Folk Festival and are part of two weekly programs on the acclaimed RFD-TV’s network, The Cumberland Highlanders Show and The Bluegrass Trail.

As a songwriter and frontman, Kody weaves his love for words and literature with clever wit and genuine emotion. A true showman, Norris adorns the band in colorful, tailored suits adorned with rhinestones, ties, classic hats, and ornate boots. Norris has crafted a performance that tips a hat to the traditions and performances of the Grand Ole Opry. Top-notch picking and harmonies, however, are always center stage. The group maintains an impressive tour schedule. In 2019, The Kody Norris Show played more than 110 dates.

The foursome is fronted by Kody Norris on guitar, with his “little sweetie,” Mary Rachel Nalley-Norris. Mary Rachel who is an award-winning and skilled multi-instrumentalist plays fiddle for the group. Before joining The Kody Norris Show, Mary Rachel played for the legendary Larry Sparks and the Lonesome Ramblers. She and Kody are newlyweds. The group is rounded out by Josiah Tyree on banjo, and ‘Cousin’ Charlie Lowman, on bass.
