We've all heard the cry from the past; "The British are coming - The British are coming;" well the new cry from country music, is "The Canadian is already here!" Codie Prevost is the Canadian this writer is talking about, and he has definitely invaded the United States country music genre and the Nashville scene. But, he invaded it in a good way, with his music.
After blazing a trail across Canada with his music, he decided to share it with the world, which you will read about in his bio. Also, he has provided two songs for your listening pleasure."Last Night All Day" is in the video section of this article, and the other can be heard by clicking "Someday." If you would like to learn more about Codie Prevost, read his following bio.
"Coming from small town roots and singing from the heart, Codie Prevost has carved out his place in Canadian country music, and he is ready to create a storm once again with the upcoming release of his fourth album “All Kinds of Crazy”. Prevost is a three time Canadian Country Music Awards nominee & five time Saskatchewan Country Music Association “Fans Choice Entertainer of the Year” winner.
His laid back attitude and approachable style make him a crowd pleasing favorite. In 2011, he was selected as the Fans Choice to perform during Fan Fest at the Canadian Country Music Awards in Hamilton. He's performed at several major events across Canada including Juno Weekend, the Grey Cup Festival and Main Stage performances at the Craven Country Jamboree, Manitoulin Country Fest, the Havelock Country Jamboree & Dauphin Country Fest. Prevost made his European debut in 2011 with a performance at the Country Bike Festival in Tours France as part of the Country Rock Bike Festival “Canadian Country Music Night”. He performed in Nashville during the American Music Conference and opened shows for Florida Georgia Line, Big & Rich, Joe Nichols, Streetheart & Prism in 2013.
Building on the momentum of his first three award winning albums “The Road Ahead” (2005) and “Spin 6-PAK Vol. I” (2008), and “Get Loud” (2010) Codie Prevost is set to release “All Kinds of Crazy” on March 1st 2014. “All Kinds of Crazy” was produced by one of Canada’s top producers, Tom McKillip in Vancouver, who has once again captured Prevost's unique style and sound. On January 20th Prevost released the much talked about single “Someday”, a song he co-wrote about finding hope and having faith through difficult times.
In the fall of 2013 along with fellow artist Stephen Maguire, Prevost helped launch the Canadian Red Cross “Imagine No Bullying” Tour, which reached over 3500 students in 7 schools across Saskatchewan. The tour will continue in April & May of 2014 in Canada.
Gracing the stage with boundless energy and passion, and conveyed with a genuine and non-assuming presence, Codie Prevost has been a much sought-after act ever since he kick started his music career in 2005. His performances are guaranteed to knock your socks off. With the release of this new album 2014 is certainly going to be 'All Kinds of Crazy' for Prevost."
