Country music up and comer Cody Purvis has joined the ranks of artists with a “drinking song” – “Drinkin’ Terms” from his new EP “Boots on the Ground”.

The song has already surpassed eight million streams on digital platforms.

Purvis recorded the five song EP after his summer plans to record a new album were put on hold after the Covid-19 pandemic locked everything down.  A portion of the proceeds from the sale of “Boots on the Ground” is going to a Covid-19 Musicians Relief fund.

Following in his father’s footsteps, a young Cody knew in 1979 that he would be making music and recording records.  Along with his father, Purvis cites traditional Country artists as his musical influences including Merle Haggard, Waylon Jennings, Conway Twitty, Dean Dillon, and Toby Keith.

He would perform his first professional gig when he was 16 years old and later won the Colgate Country Countdown in 2010.  He  has been singing ever since.  The Virginia native was named the Best Emerging Performer in Charlottesville and has performed at the annual CMA Fest.  He even passed up his own high school Prom and graduation to perform.  Purvis released his debut CD in 2012.

Purvis has opened for numerous artists including Darius Rucker, Josh Thompson, Trent Tomlinson, Steve Holy, Lee Greenwood, Colt Ford, and Peter Frampton.
