Cody was born with music in his blood and, as son of long-time emcee Steve Sifford, he literally grew up in The Carolina Opry Theater; he began working front of house at age 14. He went on to earn a BA at College of the Ozarks and performed in shows in Branson, Missouri as a guitarist and vocalist. In Branson, he also worked as a lighting operator, stage manager, and show producer. Cody returned home to Myrtle Beach in 2016 and performed locally as a guitarist and vocalist. For 12 years, he directed worship and technical teams for churches in Missouri, Orlando, Florida, and the Myrtle Beach Area. Cody is very happy to be back, truly at home at The Carolina Opry, working alongside world-class performers and technicians.
