The Kody Norris Show

June 1, 2024 - 7:00 pm - 9:00 pm

Ticket Prices: $25 – $32

Join us June 1, for The Kody Norris Show!

Deeply rooted in North American folk music, Norris has crafted an original performance that harkens back and tips a hat to the traditions created by Bill Monroe, Jimmy Martin’s showmanship, the Stanley Brothers’ harmonies, performances of the Grand Ole Opry and a bit of Vaudeville. Top notch picking is center stage, but humor and visual flash are part of the entertaining package. Always clad in colorful, tailored suits adorned with rhinestones, ties, classic hats and ornate boots, the band earns its moniker as a “show.” The brand is traditional, clean cut, acoustic and always entertaining.

Tickets are on sale now.  Preferred seating is $32 and reserved seating is $25.  Doors open at 6:00 pm, and the concert begins at 7:00 pm.   Bar and concessions available.

The Kody Norris Show

Whatever you do, don’t call The Kody Norris Show ‘retro.’

Because while the reigning SPBGMA Entertainers of the Year are known for the rhinestones that shine
from their lapels and the fringe that hangs from their collars seem to conjure up memories of times
gone by, The Kody Norris Show are very much directing their gaze forever forward.

Now, more than ever before.

The talented group, made up of frontman Kody Norris, Josiah Tyree, Mary Rachel Nalley-Norris, and
Charlie Lowman, finds themselves with a growing legion of fans craving the comfort that comes from
their retro look, but equally craving dynamic instrumentation and thought-provoking lyrics – all of
which can be heard throughout their epic new album Rhinestone Revival.

“There is a whole chapter of country music that's just kind of faded away,” The Kody Norris Show’s
frontman once said. “I believe The Kody Norris Show has been instrumental in bringing back some of
that nostalgia and some of that classic look that country music and bluegrass music used to have.”
The foundations of the electrifying four-piece band can be found within the roots of Kody Norris
himself, a once inquisitive youngster from Mountain City, Tennessee who would spend hours sitting in
the passenger seat of his Uncle Jack’s Chevrolet El Camino listening to the entirety of The Stanley
Brothers 16 Greatest Hits tape, wondering if he would ever be able to match the sweet harmonies
coming through the speakers.

It was those very harmonies that Norris also would recognize wavering through the rafters of the
Baptist church he attended as a kid. There was a bluegrass quartet that would play in the Free Will
Baptist Church, and soon Norris became infatuated with the music that could materialize from a
banjo and a guitar. So, at nine years old, he picked up the mandolin.

And he never put it down.

It was a similar love affair of music for Mary Rachel Nalley-Norris, who started playing classical violin
in the fourth grade, but by the fifth grade, she knew it wasn’t for her. Instead, in a quest to differentiate

herself from her musical counterparts in her grade school orchestra, she took up the fiddle. She
began playing the festival circuit alongside the likes of the legendary Larry Sparks and the Lonesome
Ramblers and soon became one of the most dynamic females on those festival stages.

It was on that stage she eventually met her husband Kody, who had already gone on to play alongside
the likes of Ralph Stanley, Ralph Stanley II, and Joe Isaacs throughout his already impressive career.
In 2017, banjo extraordinaire Josiah Tyree signed on with The Kody Norris Show, and soon his
old-time clawhammer style fit right into the bluegrass style that the band was becoming known for
across the country. And when bass player Charlie Lowman joined in on the fun, armed with a
giddiness and love for the music that he plays that soon became infectious, The Kody Norris Show as
we now know it was complete.

It was musical magic at its finest.

It’s this easy-going nature that became downright illuminated on 2017’s When I Get the Money Made,
which was named Bluegrass Album of the Year by the National Traditional Country Music
Association. The Kody Norris Show followed it up with 2019’s All Suited Up, which debuted at #7 on
the Billboard charts. Now playing over 100 dates a year across the country and around the world, The
Kody Norris Show have been part of the University of Chicago Folk Festival and are part of two weekly
programs on the acclaimed RFD-TV's network, The Cumberland Highlanders Show and The Bluegrass

But with the release of Rhinestone Revival comes a feeling that listeners have just begun to witness
The Kody Norris Show’s very own revival, as the band finds themselves sprinkling their iconic
rhinestones on a few different music genres to solidify their place on the musical landscape.
And the fans can’t get enough.

In fact, it’s those fans that have raised The Kody Norris Show to a place in which they stand today, a
place where the four-piece, multi-instrumentalist, bluegrass band are quickly becoming four of the
most epic entertainers of our time. Add that to the songwriting displayed on the Kody Norris-penned
“Baltimore I’m Leaving,” “Fiddler’s Rock,” “Please Tell Me Why,” and the infectious “Gotta Get My Baby
Back” on Rhinestone Revival, and there is no doubt that The Kody Norris Show is as current as ever.
They ain’t retro. They have something different. They have something uniquely theirs. They have
something that makes them stand out.

“We want people to know who we are,” Norris once said.

And they will.
