Canaan Cox has been pursuing a career as a country artist for several years. He came on to the Bobby Bones Show for the first time this morning (May 4) after an interaction with Bobby Bones at the restaurant he works at part time.
Bones and his fiancé Caitlin went to Del Frisco's Grille for dinner and while they were there a coaster was given to Bones. Cox was the one to give Bones the coaster with his name, Instagram and information on it. He explained to Bones that he was a country artist and wanted to shoot his shot, though Bones could just throw the coaster away if he wanted to. The interaction spun into Bones calling Cox for a phone call during the show. Then that phone conversation is what brought Cox onto the show today to perform.
During his time on the show, Cox shared that he's been back working at Del Frisco's as a side job since October because of the pandemic. He admitted the biggest tip he's ever gotten was $150, but it was 20% for the bill. Also he never up-sells his customers on anything besides steak, that's the one thing he may say is the "chef's pick of the day," even when it really isn't. Before being a waiter though, Cox's fans shared that he used to perform on cruises and he really liked that gig. He would get to see the world for free and perform. His other side gigs involve working on music videos and behind-the-scenes of the music industry. He got a degree in musical theater so Cox is extremely talented in dancing, acting, and singing. Not only can he dance tap, modern, and jazz, but he also performed in plays like Oklahoma! and Bye Bye Birdie.
While on the show, Cox performed a cover of Michael Jackson's "The Way You Make Me Feel" and his original song "Out Of Nowhere."
