Cody Canada Discusses Koe Wetzel’s ‘Ragweed’, Being The MusicFest 2020 Tribute Artist, & More
Our pal Kacey James over at The PlayList recently sat down for a great conversation with Red Dirt legend, Cody Canada. The two cover a lot of ground including Canada's stance on one of Texas' brightest burning stars.
Koe Wetzel's rise, his band's swagger, and their undeniable popularity has drawn countless comparisons to Cross Canadian Ragweed, and Cody certainly sees it. "The not giving a sh*t, but giving a sh*t," Cody says his band did it, Koe is doing it. "You guys act like you don't care, but you really do... I endorse everything he does. I'm proud of him."
"Everybody had really finally stopped asking me about when the band was going to get back together, then he put out that f*cking song," Canada says laughing. "No, I like the song. It's an honor."
In the interview Canada also discusses the weight of being the tribute artist at MusicFest this year, "I watched Robert Earl (Keen) be the tribute artist 12, 13 years ago and he said 'I don't feel old enough for this,' and that's exactly how I feel."
