var culture = CultureInfoProvider.GetCultureInfo("en-us");
var culturealias = culture.CultureAlias;

or

var cultureAlias = LocalizationContext.CurrentCulture.CultureAlias

something along those lines should work, just have to use whichever culture code you want

that's great. I'm looking for the current culture, maybe CMSPreferredCulture.

LocalizationContext.CurrentCulture should give you the current culture that is being used.
