Even though Austin Moody was writing songs at 15, the musician from East Tennessee never thought he’d make his living chasing that dream. Already enrolled into the JROTC with a private pilot’s license under his belt, the young man who grew up on a family farm believed his future was in the Air Force.
Life, though, has a way of leading the ones meant to make music to Nashville. “When I came to town and got a publishing deal, it was everything I thought I wanted,” the relates Moody. “But it didn’t make me feel the way I thought it would.” Raised on both classic country and classic rock, Moody’s esthetic isn’t aligned to today’s country radio.
