  1. In September 2002, he released his debut album The Headphone Masterpiece and it peaked at #6 on the U.S. Top Independent Albums chart and at #128 on the U.S. Billboard 200 chart. Tom Moon, reviewing the album in Rolling Stone, hailed it as “one of the most emotionally raw albums of the year” and a record that “gathered musical strands from all over the pop universe into unadorned, remarkably intimate stream-of-consciousness musings on love, money, and responsibility”.
  2. Cody Chesnutt was nominated for Shortlist Music Prize in October 2003 and performed in the ceremony for the prize at the Wiltern Theatre in Los Angeles, California.
  3. In 2005, he appeared in the documentary film Dave Chappelle‘s Block Party (also known as Block Party). The film and its soundtrack are dedicated to the memory of music producer J Dilla who died of lupus a month before the film’s release.
  4. In 2020, Cody Chesnutt provided his vocals, from his song Parting Ways, as a street singer with a guitar in the computer-animated film Soul. The film stars the voices of Jamie Foxx, Tina Fey, Graham Norton, Rachel House, Alice Braga, Richard Ayoade, Phylicia Rashad, Donnell Rawlings, Questlove, and Angela Bassett.
