The Cody Johnson Band, along with Kyle Park, will be back in Huntsville on February 15th. The Cody Johnson Band consists of Nathan Reedy on drums, lead guitarist Jeff Smith,  bass guitarist Joey Pruski, and Jody Bartula with the fiddle. In recent years, The Cody Johnson Band has become increasingly popular on the radio and in Texas dance halls. According to the band's bio, The Cody Johnson Band's shows "still keep a Garth Brooks-level of energy and a Ronnie Van Zant - outlaw dedication to individual style."

Kyle Park and his band, Karl Schwoch (electric guitar), Will Armstrong (drums, percussion) and Eric Lenington (bass), will also be performing that night. Park and his band have been touring all across Texas and in other parts of the United States. They have also played in France and Germany. They recently finished a full-length album, "Make or Break Me," which was released last September.

It's great to have both of these successful bands stop in Huntsville on their Johnson/Park Tour!
