Cowboy Cody: That Lil' Ol' Shack Out Back and 10 More Songs About Outhouses


Cody Wayne Wyler, Jr. (born December 25, 1928), known professionally as Cowboy Cody, is an American country music singer and songwriter known for his unique yodeling abilities. He has sold in excess of 50 million albums and although now retired from the spotlight, he remains a true legend and pioneer of the Country and Western music genre. During his seven decades in the music business, Cowboy Cody was known for his rough, authenic cowboy appearance and somewhat off-color lyrics.

His 1949 hit single Cowboys Don't Eat Beans By the Campfire held the record for the longest at number one on the U.K. charts until Willie Nelson broke the record in 1992. In the U.S., his versions of That Lil' Ol' Shack Out Back (1952) and Sears Catalog Blues (1953) both reached number two on the Billboard country chart. Cowboy Cody had a string of minor hits from the mid 1960s into the late 1970s, and became known to a new generation of fans through TV marketing in the 1980s. His 1987 compilation album That Lil' Ol' Shack Out Back and 10 More Songs About Outhouses went quadruple platinum and is still a top seller through mail order catalogs.
