Kody Norris & the Watauga Mountain Boys is a traditional bluegrass band from Mountain City, Tennessee area. As the band travels around the country, they are often compared to the bluegrass bands of yesteryear, because no matter where you see this band, they are always sharply dressed, and when it comes to playing Traditional ‘Mountain Sound’ of bluegrass music, they play it like it should be played. In there shows, they include acoustic and old time gospel music as well.
Kody Norris has made appearances on RFD TV with the Cumberland Highlanders Show. He has also filled in and played with Dr. Ralph Stanley & the Clinch Mountain Boys, Ralph Stanley II, Vince Combs & The Shadetree Bluegrass Boys, Clint Howard & Doc Watson, Sammy Adkins & The Sandy Hook Mountain Boys just to name a few. Not bad for a young man of 22 years of age. The Watauga Mountain Boys have made appearances at the Cabin Fever Pickin Party, Hampton, VA, at the Central Virginia Family Bluegrass Music Festival, Amelia, VA, Bluegrass Brothers Festival, Elkton, VA, and Mr. ‘B’s’ Bluegrass Festival, Beaverdam, VA.

This tremendously popular bluegrass and old time music concert series comes from the Lincoln Theater in Marion, Virginia and is hosted by Tim White.
