Acclaimed country artist Craig Campbell launched Grindstone Records several years ago both to release his own music as well as support new artists. Today, he announces the signing of Colorado native Cody Cozz to the label and the release of his debut single, “On My Way.”
“I am so excited for this guy!” said Craig. “Cody Cozz is the epitome of hard work and talent rolled into one. His new single ‘On My Way’ is a game changer. Cody is the real deal and he truly is ON HIS WAY!!”
Written by Craig with Phil O’Donnell and Wade Kirby, Craig also produced the track. He originally intended the moving song for his own album but felt it would be a perfect song to introduce Cody.
“This song stood out to me right away,” said Cody, crediting Craig for taking him under his wing and helping him navigate an ever-changing industry. “It resonated with me, and the lyrics engulfed me into really feeling the story. It’s a song that’s personal to me but universal at the same time.”
A native of Pueblo, Colorado, Cody was a promising strong safety for Colorado State University Pueblo, before his football dreams were dashed by a career-ending injury during his junior year. He had sung all his life and was self-taught on guitar but had little music aspirations before his injury.
