New Single - Listen
Texas has produced some of country music's biggest legends, and Jody Booth could well be the next member to join that near-cosmic lineup. With a gritty edge that defies convention and a lyrical vulnerability startling in its honesty, this intense guitar-playing singer/songwriter from the small town of Livingston, Texas is hovering on the borderline between regional acclaim and national fame - and he's reaching out for the "big time."
Jody’s music is pure and heartfelt; his writing is forged by a life lived in the trenches of responsibility while dancing on the edge. “I don’t always write about my life” Jody states. “But I think I’m a good observer of the human condition and I think it shows in my songs”
Jody’s playing all over the state of Texas, both acoustic sets and full band. He has made a name for himself, playing Honky-Tonks, festivals and fairs, and while he doesn’t like to “drop names”, he modestly admits to opening for the likes of Willie Nelson, Tracy Lawrence, Jack Ingram, Roger Creager, Aaron Watson, Tracy Byrd, and his absolute favorite, Merle Haggard. As a songwriter Jody has written with a ton of Texas acts such as Kevin Fowler, Roger Creager, Cory Morrow, Dean Dillion, Josh Ward, Bri Bagwell, Jake Worthington, John Slaughter, Jason Allen, Jason Cassidy, and the list goes on and on. He has co-written two number ones from Roger Creager and Jason Cassidy, and several top ten hits From Josh Ward and John Slaughter. When Jody is not writing or performing, he’s playing golf or poker, and getting ready for hunting season.Discography
