The Cody Wayne Band, which consists of several local musicians, recently hit an extreme milestone in their career: That of bringing their brand of “Red Dirt” music to President Donald J. Trump’s November 26 Homecoming Rally at the BB&T Center in Sunrise, Florida.

“It was all kind of a whirlwind,” said bassist Trent Procell, who, along with lead guitarist Zach Early sat down with the Index for an interview following their return home. They also spoke on behalf of Converse drummer Tyler Williamson.

“Your Zwolle boy played music for the President of the United States,” Trent exclaims.

The Cody Wayne Band, which consists of several local musicians, recently hit an extreme milestone in their career:  That of bring their brand of “Red Dirt” music to President Donald J. Trump’s November 26 Homecoming Rally at the BB&T Center in Sunrise, Florida.

“It was all kind of a whirlwind,” said bassist Trent Procell, who, along with lead guitarist Zach Early sat down with the Index for an interview following their return home.  “But your Zwolle boy played music for the President of the United States.”

However, despite the rush of them having a meager week between learning of their booking and performing for the President, their road to such a high-profile gig started years before.

Both were born into musical families.  Zach notes that family members played bluegrass on his father’s side of the family and cousins often played together during man opportunities.  Trent was also exposed to music at a very young age through his parents.

Siarah, Savannah Hall named 2019 Young Achievers

Solan Peterson

The 2019 Young Achievers Award goes to Savanah and Siarah Hall, two sisters who have already accomplished much in their lives. Their story is an inspiring and unique one.

Savanah and Siarah Hall moved to Sabine Parish in 2009. They were born to biological parents who were both addicted to drugs and who both chose drugs over being parents. The sisters endured neglect, abuse and repeated abandonment, but came out of their experiences strong and with hopes not altogether dashed by their sad situations.

Savanah once wrote, “We were born in 1998 and 1999. Our parents (to be more accurate, the people who biologically created us) we both in their early 20s when they had us.
