Waterloo Revival – George Birge and Cody Cooper

(NASHVILLE, Tenn.) Show Dog Nashville’s Waterloo Revival – Austin natives George Birge and Cody Cooper – are celebrating as 2018 kicks off… and so are music fans. Their new single “What Guy Wouldn’t” is trending up by all measures.


At radio “What Guy Wouldn’t” is in the top 30 on the Music Row chart. And the single’s streaming growth has been huge, exceeding 15 million streams at this point.


Looking back on the past year, Birge notes, “2017 was incredible for us. Between releasing our new single and touring the country we felt like we were able to get closer to our fans more than ever before. We have been blown away by their support propelling our first song to ever break more than 15 million streams. The year was really special for us personally as well, welcoming a new baby George James and celebrating Cody and Emily’s marriage in our hometown of Austin, Texas. We want to thank all of our fans – or as we call them ‘Revivers’ – for an amazing year. Keep your eyes open for new music soon, we’ve been working like crazy and can’t wait to share what we have in store!”


Critical praise has also been rolling in throughout the year. “Make no mistake that the breezy, light-hearted ‘What Guy Wouldn’t’ song will get stuck in your head even after just one listen, but we promise it’s a good thing. The duo has been making a name for themselves in Nashville and seem to have a host of momentum behind them – and there’s a reason for that. They easily fit into the modern landscape of the genre with their infectious pop-country melodies, but have a slight edge that makes them stand out and promises staying power. …when they break through on country radio, they’ll be unstoppable. ‘What Guy Wouldn’t’ might be the song,” Taste of Country expounded, while All Music directly stated, “it was their catchy 2017 single, ‘What Guy Wouldn’t,’ that helped them break through.”

George and Cody are also now featured in Colt Ford’s “Dynamite,” a new song on Ford’s Billboard Country charting album, Love Hope Faith. Rare Country made note of the track and accompanied epic music video, “The song features Colt and up-and-comers Waterloo Revival singing about a girl so different, beautiful and feisty she blows your mind and your heart, just like dynamite…The video for the single is even hotter. If fact, it’s positively cinematic: fast, expensive cars, fight scenes and shady deals with lots of cash in a briefcase make this video feel more like a mini-mob movie!”

Waterloo Revival spent most of 2017 opening for Toby Keith as they readied the release of “What Guy Wouldn’t.” Written by David Lee Murphy (“Dust On The Bottle,” “Big Green Tractor”) and John King (Randy Houser’s “We Went”), the song was produced by Jason Massey (co-producer for Kelsea Ballerini) and Ken Tondre.

Rounding out last year, the duo’s acoustic cover of “All I Want For Christmas Is You” launched on Amazon’s “Acoustic Christmas” playlist. A featured video of Waterloo Revival’s take on the song can be seen here. Praise for the performance rolled in from Digital Journal who noted “Waterloo Revival have covered the Christmas classic ‘All I Want for Christmas,’ and the result is divine.  Birge nails the lead vocals, which are simultaneously sultry and haunting. Cooper soars on harmonies and acoustic guitar. It has a nostalgic and calming vibe to it, that instantly puts the listener in the Christmas spirit. “
