CRITIC’S PICK: Take some ZZ Top Southern-fried blues rock, add AC/DC intensity, throw in enough liquor to kill a horse, and you’re close to the gritty attack of Parks and his band. They have some gnarly covers — including “Long Haired Country Boy” and “Folsom Prison Blues” — pummeling the classics with screaming guitars and a swamp attack. It’s gonna get loud. — Hal Horowitz

From the venue:

Cody Parks and The Dirty South aren’t your typical Nashville country act. Singer, songwriter, Cody Parks, always knew his vision could become a reality with the right players who shared his vision, and in 2019, Cody Parks and The Dirty South was formed. They can better be described as “Def Leppard on cornbread,” blending their country roots with their love for 80s and 90s metal ... coining their own genre, Country Metal. Influenced by the likes of Mötley Crüe, Ratt, and Pantera, The Dirty South’s heavy-hitting riffs and breakdowns bring an element to country music that turns Nashville’s Broadway into L.A.’s Sunset Strip! Their newly released covers EP titled, Smothered and Covered, had singles chart at #2 and #7 on iTunes. Be on the lookout for new original music coming late 2023 and early 2024, and find them “plowin’ through” a city near you in 2024. Now ... CRANK UP THE COUNTRY METAL!
