Gary Allan and Cody Johnson might not have been raised by famous parents, but they each got their start playing in honkytonks with their fathers at an early age.  They also share a fierce independence streak, writing and producing most of their own music.  In this episode, we've matched an established country music star with a bonafide up-and-comer.

Gary and Cody share wonderful tales of breaking into the business, trying to get established, getting crushed and starting all over again.  The two sing excerpts of their biggest hits almost outdoing one another at every turn.
