John Cody Carter’s CD, Don’t You Think It’s Time, answers its question with its music. Yes, it is time for a new traditional country music CD that is pure classic country music. 

"Don’t You Think It’s Time" features fourteen songs written in the classic country style of Merle Haggard, Willie Nelson and Hank Cochran (“I Fall To Pieces,” “Make The World Go Away”). In fact, Hank Cochran co-wrote five songs with Cody on "Don’t You Think It’s Time",  and Merle Haggard wrote the CD’s liner notes, giving the CD his full endorsement.

The CD’s first single, “Let’s Stop Right Where We Are,” reached #24 on the Texas Music Chart. The second single "Don't Walk Out On Me" went to #23 on the Texas Music Chart. The third single released "Houston Bound" reached #22 on the Texas Music Chart. All three songs consecutively enjoyed runs over five months in the top 50 of the Texas Music Chart.

Cody’s first songwriting contract was with Merle Haggard’s "Inorbit Publishing" and by 1990 he penned his first top 40 single on the country music charts. Cody’s chart success opened doors in Nashville and he moved there with a new songwriting contract and an eventual recording contract with Warner Bros. Records. Cody was brought to Warner Brothers by producer Gregg Brown (Travis Tritt, Tanya Tucker, Chris Ledoux , Waylon Jennings). Former Warner Brothers A&R V.P. Doug Grau  signed Cody. Cody and Doug’s relationship continues today as Doug heads Yell Records operation. As an entertainer, Cody equally combines his passion for songwriting, performing and recording.

Don’t You Think It’s Time, produced by Gregg Brown and John Cody Carter, is available now at www.johncodycarter.com and  wherever CDs are sold.
