Cody McCarver has just released his new album 'Blessings' featuring the first single 'These Hands'. Cody (a former member of Confederate Railroad) invited his friend John Schneider to join him on the single. 'These Hands' has a Christian message but falls right in line with the country genre as well.
Cody's vocals lure you in by talking about how important our hands are only to drop the message "they've never parted waters or been nailed to a tree".
Cody McCarver's new album 'Blessings' also features a duet with the legendary John Anderson on the old hymn 'The Old Rugged Cross'. The CD is produced by Lew Card who also is a co-writer with Cody on several tracks.
Raised in the mountains of Dunlap, TN, Cody’s first musical influence was in his home church. Even as a young child, Cody loved music and became the church piano player before the age of ten. It’s that musical connection to faith that has helped Cody through dark and troubled times, including the imprisonment of his father and his death inside a jail cell.
Cody spent over a decade with country music super-group, Confederate Railroad, eventually leaving to start his own solo career. This career was extremely lucrative with numerous accolades - including three number one videos’ on CMT Pure Country and earning the title of Independent Artist of the Year from Music Row Magazine.
