Experience of Codie Prevost
Codie entered the world of music as the result of his mother playing guitar at family celebrations. When the guitar wasn’t “strummed”, background music of Johnny Horton, Loretta Lynn and Johnny Cash found its way to the forefront.
Codie has won numerous awards including in 2013, Canadian Country Music Association, Entertainer of the Year, Male Vocalist of the Year.
The music bug bit when Codie was eight years old. With the purchase of an acoustic guitar and graduating from college, Codie was introduced to Jessica Robinson for singing lessons that later brought Codie to the attention of Nashville producer Steve Fox.
In 2002, Codie auditioned for a talent contest in Zenon Park, SK. There, Codie met manager, Al LeBlanc and a partnership quickly formed. Songs were written and recorded with Steve Fox which yielded nationally charted singles from Codie’s 2005 debut album, “The Road Ahead”.
After Codie’s 2005 debut album, he immediately went on to rock 150 live performances, which translated to multiple nominations at the 2006 Saskatchewan Country Music Awards – including The Rising Star Award and Album of the Year for “The Road Ahead”.
In 2007, Codie opened for Doc Walker, Emerson Drive, Gord Bamford, Aaron Pritchett, and Deric Ruttan. While the creative process was in high gear for Codie’s next album, the dynamic artist and manager duo came up with an ingenious idea – a six-song mini CD, called a “6-Pak” – the first of which is named SPIN.
SPIN was launched to the supportive Archerwill hometown crowd in August 2008. In September 2008, the Canadian Country Music Awards were held in Regina and Codie was selected as one of eight New Artist Showcase Spots to perform. In 2009, his winter and spring travels in Saskatchewan, Manitoba and Alberta had him touching thousands of lives during “The Road Ahead” tour.
Successful songwriting sessions in Nashville coupled with a personal invitation to perform at the highly acclaimed SxSW Music Festival in Austin, Texas, was followed by an unprecedented 15 nominations at the 20th Anniversary of the 2009 Saskatchewan Country Music Awards handed out in Nipawin, SK. Family, friends and fans witnessed as Codie Prevost and his band took the stage 10 times to accept 10 awards over the course of the April 25th weekend including the highest accolade, Fans Choice Entertainer of the Year, Male Vocalist of the Year, and Album of the Year for SPIN.
Codie Prevost has had main stage performances at the Craven Country Fest, Manitoulin Country Fest, the Havelock Country Jamboree & Dauphin Countryfest. Codie launched his highly anticipated third album, “Get Loud.” in 2010. An exciting change for Prevost this time around was having the opportunity to work with one of Canada’s top producers, Tom McKillip in Vancouver, who captured his unique style and sound. The lead off single/video “Rolling Back To You” climbed to the top 30 on the BDS chart and the video got heavy rotation on CMT.
Codie was named “Countries newest sensation” by ET Canada. He has been invited to perform at Prairie Scene in Ottawa and will be making his European debut with a performance in France at the Country Bike Festival in Tours as part of the Canadian Country Music Night. Codie was nominated at the CCMA Awards for “Interactive Artist of the Year” in 2013.
