Happy 40th birthday wishes are going out to Red Dirt rocker Cody Canada today from all of us at Kickin' Country 103.1. Cody has been rockin' the Red Dirt scene for over 20 years.

Back when he was 17, the late, great Tom Skinner would get Cody into shows by telling club doormen that Cody was his nephew. A year later, Cody would form the band Cross Canadian Ragweed with his musician friends. The band would go on to an over 15 year run. At their last show in Chicago in 2010, the band closed their set with Neil Young's "Rockin' in the Free World".

A year later, Cody would form his current band 'The Departed'. Happy 40th Cody and keep rockin'!

Sound off Concho Valley in the comment section below and leave your 40th birthday wishes for Cody Canada!
