Cody Wickline singing Keith Whitley's "Don't Close Your Eyes"
Cody Wickline is a rising country singer from West Virginia. He appeared on Season 8 of The Voice. He turned all 4 judges chairs with his rendition of the George Jones classic "He Stopped Loving Her Today" and ended up on Team Blake. After Cody was eliminated during the Knockout Round, he returned to WV and has continued to perform for enthusiastic crowds. He released his debut album, "Son of a Working Man" in February 2016 and has opened up for such well known acts as Lynyrd Skynyrd, John Michael Montgomery and the Brothers Osborne. I think Cody is one of the most talented country singers around today. He has that old country sound. He has done a lot of covers, but this one of "Don't Close Your Eyes" is my favorite! And, in addition to being incredibly talented, Cody is also extremely humble and kind. He has performed countless benefits, from people with cancer to his local animal shelter. He has also visited a sick little girl who is a big fan of his at a children's hospital in Morgantown, WV because she was too ill to attend his show. Cody is the real deal and the whole package and deserves success more than anyone I can think of.

Cody Wickline is the real deal. He not only sings the songs, he feels them and pours his heart & soul into his performance. His authentic old country sound is currently missing from the air waves. It will be fantastic when he finally gets the proper exposure to a nationwide audience, which will undoubtedly see his popularity soar. Spread the word, Cody Wickline is REAL COUNTRY !

Cody Wickline sings country music like it should be sung. The emotion and feeling he puts into his music and performances is genuine. For 22 years old, this young man is very humble and caring for all the work he does.

Cody Wickliffe is an amazing country singer! His voice is one of those that keeps you wanting more, mesmerizing, along the likes of George Jones, Vince Gill, Johnny Cash and the ones that don't even need the sounds of guitar, but then when he picks that guitar and dance a step or two, boy, you'd think Elvis was in the house!!! Love Cody's shows for sure! You'll never meet a more likeable, sincere and caring person and family oriented anywhere, He has it all !!! Looks too!!!
