On his last single, “Take my aim again”, Grace aka Cody tells listeners to never give up on life and to fight off haters, and it’s exactly this kind of earnest intensity that sets the disabled veteran apart from his peers. Hailing from Memphis, Tennessee, he joined the army out of high school and went straight to combat in Iraq, which took its toll on him. Now a 100% disabled veteran, Grace aka Cody has turned his full attention to music, and his new single certifies that he hasn’t given up on life, despite what he has been through.
