When Cody Wayne completed his tour in the Marines, he came back home to Nacogdoches, Texas to start his music career. Cody, a native Texan, found early success while performing acoustic shows at Banita Creek Hall. During the same time period, Max McRuiz was attending SFA University in Nacogdoches and was also performing acoustic shows at Banita Creek Hall. Later that year, Cody and Max joined forces to create Westbound 21. Shortly thereafter, Lyndsey Torrez joined the band as bassist and Ronnie Godfrey joined the band as the drummer.

The band began touring the East Texas area and quickly made a name for themselves. In fact, the band gained the attention of Nashville legend Neal McCoy. Neal had Westbound 21 open for his band and was later interviewed for the spotlight introduction to Westbound 21s EPK. The band has also performed with Texas giants Kevin Fowler, Eli Young, Bart Crow, Colt Ford, Casey Donahew, and many more artists. Most recently, Westbound 21 picked up a sponsorship from the East Texas premiere radio station, 105.7 KYKX. Thanks to Charlie ODouglas and KYKX, the band has the opportunity to go live on the radio prior to big events to build enthusiasm and excitement for the upcoming show. Through the support and vote of thousands of fans, Westbound 21 also gained the title of Best Country Band in East Texas.


Westbound 21 released a self-titled EP during the fall of 2011. Tracks from the EP such as "Drifter" and "Backwoods Barbie" are regularly played on 105.7 KYKX and other radio stations. Westbound 21 has recently been in the studio and expects to drop another EP later this year.
