TV/radio personality Cody Alan has partnered with Harper Horizon to release a memoir of his music industry adventures and life lessons he’s learned along the way. The project will release Oct. 19, 2021.
Alan, host of CMT’s flagship music series, CMT Hot 20 Countdown, and the award-winning, nationally syndicated radio show, CMT After MidNite, distributed by iHeartMedia’s Premiere Networks, will offer his guidance on developing compassion and perseverance, as well as the art of listening.
“It might seem strange for a guy who talks for a living to write a book about shutting up and listening,” says Alan. “But I’ve discovered that in a world of noise, with so many voices talking, we could learn a lot by stopping to listen. Not just listening to others, but also to ourselves. I thought it would be fun to share stories from my personal journey, country music adventures and experienced insights on what I’ve learned about life, career and love from listening.”
“When I first met Cody, I was struck by the similarities between his story and the Harper Horizon mission to make the world a better place,” said Andrea Fleck-Nisbet, Harper Horizon publisher. “Not only is our hometown of Nashville the backdrop of Cody’s story, but its themes of inclusivity, community, and self- healing are very much part of the Horizon narrative too. We are thrilled that Cody has joined our team, and we fully expect his book to become a beacon of encouragement to readers everywhere.”
Cody Alan is heard on air nightly on 225 Country radio stations and over 1,000 global military bases and ships on his two radio shows, CMT After MidNite and CMT Radio Live, and seen every weekend traveling the world interviewing the biggest country stars backstage and on the red carpet with CMT Hot 20 Countdown. He has hosted top radio shows in Dallas, Orlando and Salt Lake City, and contributes frequently to LGBTQ+ outreach programs. He is the father of two and currently lives in Nashville with his fiancée, healthcare worker Trea Smith, and golden retriever, Teddy.
