With more than 1.8 billion career streams globally, COJO Music/Warner Music Nashville recording artist Cody Johnson has clearly established a rabid following of loyal fans who thirst for his authentic brand of country music. The aptly named “COJO Nation” purchased half a million concert tickets in one calendar year and regularly pack out shows across the country. Johnson sold out 45+ shows in 2019 alone including a sold-out show at historic Ryman Auditorium and RODEOHOUSTON for the second consecutive year. His first major-label release Ain’t Nothin To It skyrocketed to No. 1 on both the Billboard Top Country Albums and All-Genre Digital Sales charts. Also reaching Top 10 on Billboard 200, it became the third-highest pre-added album of all time in the country music genre on Apple Music at the time of release. Johnson’s Platinum-certified “On My Way To You” has recently been named one of NSAI’s “10 Songs I Wish I’d Written 2020” and marks his first Top 10 hit at country radio. Now he returns to country airplay with his latest single “Dear Rodeo,” which MusicRow described as “a beautiful piece of work,” going on to state Johnson “just might be the future of real country music.” Co-written by Johnson and Dan Couch as a very personal tribute to Johnson’s previous bull-riding career, the reflective song struck a chord with fellow rodeo rider Reba McEntire, prompting the two to record a poignant duet version also available everywhere now.
The country star is known for his explosive live shows and electrifying stage presence. Even prior to signing a joint venture with Warner Music Nashville, Johnson’s independently released project reached No. 2 on Billboard’s Top Country Albums chart and No. 11 on the Billboard 200 Chart. With ACM and CMA nominations to his name, Johnson has been recognized as one of The Tennessean’s “Nashville’s Next Stars,” MusicRow’s “2019 Next Big Thing,” iHeartRadio’s “Artists to Watch in 2019,” and highlighted on Pandora’s “Artist to Watch 2019” playlist.
