“When looking for new material to record, you never know where you might find it,” shares Norris. “A good friend of mine, the late John Buckwheat Greene brought ‘I Call Her Sunshine’ to my attention as he thought it would suit the sound of my band. He was on the original recording of this with the Laurel Mountain Boys back in the 70s. Seconds into the kickoff I was hooked and I knew right away that Josiah’s powerful high lead would certainly suit this number so we reassembled our trio putting Mary Rachel on Tenor and yours truly on Baritone. We had a blast recording this one and sure hope it’ll be enjoyed by all who hear it.”
Additionally, “I Call Her Sunshine” has been selected for early playlist adds on Spotify’s Bluegrass Traditions editorial playlist as well as Apple Music’s New in Americana and New in Country editorial playlists.
As a result of their fresh new sound to the genre, The Kody Norris Show has performed in forty-eight states, at the Smithsonian and the Kennedy Center, and has received multiple IBMA & SPBGMA nominations and wins in 2022 for Entertainer of the Year and Fiddler of the Year for Mary Rachel Nalley-Norris. The Kody Norris Show continues to be heard on bluegrass radio throughout the country, and their single “Mountain Rosalie” can also be heard on SiriusXM’s Bluegrass Junction on Channel 62.
