A born and raised Nashvillian, Cody Pennington is starting to make waves in the UK country music scene. A highly varied and interesting life inspires Cody’s songwriting.
From leaving Nashville for the United States Air Force in 2011 to selling out many UK music venues (including the historic 100 Club in London and the 760-capacity Central Hall in Southampton) Cody’s working life is already varied enough to write a full biography.
Cody grew up in Nashville, TN where he cut his teeth in the local music scene. He studied Recording Business Management before deciding to join the Air Force.
His time in the Air Force took Cody around the world. He was stationed in unique locations like Turkey and the UK. While working as a medical technician, Cody still took advantage of his off-time by performing in as many venues as possible.
Nearing the end of his enlistment, Cody decided it was time to pursue his music full-time – this would prove to be difficult. For months, he was forced to sleep in his car while simultaneously booking tours in the lower southern states.
However, in a true redemption story (which involved gaining a Master’s degree and leaving a job as a lawyer to pursue music), Cody worked his way back up. His sell-out 2022 tour sold over 5,000 tickets and the venues on his upcoming tour have doubled in capacity.
