Oct. 18, 2017 – Cody McCarver is scheduled to appear Thursday night, Oct. 19, at the Grand Ole Opry in Nashville, as part of a tribute to bluegrass legend Dr. Ralph Stanley. McCarver will share the stage with a host of other country, western, and bluegrass stars, including the Oak Ridge Boys and the Gatlin Brothers.

Bill Cody will host the show, which starts at 7 p.m. In the Ryman Auditorium.

Raised in Spencer and living in the local area most of his life, McCarver “spent over a decade with country music super-group, Confederate Railroad, eventually leaving to start his own solo career. This career was extremely lucrative with numerous accolades - including three number one videos’ on CMT Pure Country and earning the title of Independent Artist of the Year from Music Row Magazine.” (From the Cody McCarver website.) 

In recent years, McCarver's renewed commitment to Jesus Christ has been reflected in his music, as he began singing songs that glorify God.

His latest CD, titled “Rise Up” was released Sept. 8 and is available from Amazon, Google Play, and iTunes.
