Jody Nix and the Texas Cowboys (The Kennedy Center)

Jody Nix and the Texas Cowboys

The pure lyrical strains of country swing drift from the sandy plains of West Texas. A legendary style created in the 1940's & 50's by two great talents, BOB WILLS & HOYLE NIX, continues to excite audiences. Hoyle's son, Jody Nix, inherited his father's love of music and his talent - a combination that was shown early in life. At eight, when most children were learning the music scales, Jody began his professional career, playing five nights a week for his father's band, The West Texas Cowboys. He learned the soft swing of country music as only an insider can - an insider guided by Hoyle Nix & Bob Wills! Jody's years of music education were rewarded.
