Cody Cooke and the Bayou Outlaws
Saturday, January 19,2013
following Bass Tournament Weigh In

Cody Cooke IS country music. He lives, eats, and sleeps country music. The words to his songs are based on his life experiences. Born in Mansfield, Louisiana, Cody grew up cruising the back roads, fishing the best creeks, and sipping the finest shine that the bayou state has to offer. Cody's music offers hints of his favorite influences from Hank 1, 2, & 3, Waylon Jennings, Merle Haggard, David Allan Coe, Travis Tritt, & Tony Joe White to newer artists such as Jamey Johnson, Randy Houser, & Brantley Gilbert. His sound is truly classic outlaw country turned up to eleven.

An ace shot, Liz prides herself on being "one of the boys." She baits the hooks, pulls the lines and throws a knife with the best of them…and this is your chance to meet Liz!
