Mix hard work and perseverance with an extended road trip and you have the makings of the new song “You Won’t Sleep Tonight” by Codie Prevost. The song is a take on being away for a long time and the anticipation of coming home to your loved one.
The 32-year-old artist co-wrote the tune with Adam Wheeler (the two also co-wrote “Someday” – which was Top 50 on the Canadian charts). The new single is the first from Prevost’s upcoming fall release, Radio. Jeff Johnson (George Canyon, Wes Mack) and Jesse Weiman produced the album.
Prevost’s fifth studio album follows-up his award-winning All Kinds of Crazy. That album won the 2014 Western Canadian Music Awards Country Recording of the Year, along with being nominated the same year for the Canadian Country Music Association Awards Album of the Year. It was released on Good Spirit Records (his own label).
Prevost is a four-time Canadian Country Music Association nominee and six-time Saskatchewan Country Music Association’s Fans Choice Entertainer of the Year award winner. His other award-winning songs include “Standing Still,” “Rolling Back To You,” “Honky Tonk Groupie,” and “I’m Okay.” Prevost wrote the latter for a good friend who had lost her brother at a young age.
Seeing his mom and uncle perform at family functions and the joy their music brought others inspired Prevost to learn the guitar. He lists Paul Brandt, Keith Urban, and Eric Church among the country artists who have influenced his music. The Grand Ole’ Opry is his dream venue.
Recent international tours have taken him to France and Australia, the latter included performances at the Tamworth Country Music Festival, Plantation Music Festival, and the Gympie Music Muster. Prevost has opened for Jason Aldean, Joe Nichols, and Florida Georgia Line.
Prevost has more than an album in the works. He and his wife Ashley are expecting their second child any day now.
His next tour stop will be at Landham (Canada) Days on June 16.
