Cody Johnson has been chasing his country music dream since he was a kid. In junior high, he started writing songs and never looked back. After releasing five albums under his own label, “CoJo,” Johnson made his first appearance on the country music charts in 2014 when his album, “Cowboy Like Me,” reached the Top 10 on Billboard’s Top Country Albums Chart. His follow-up album, “Gotta Be Me,” debuted at No. 2 on Billboard’s Top Country Albums Chart, an impressive achievement for an unsigned artist.

Johnson channels his own experiences into his music, and the authenticity he conveys has created a true connection with his fans, known as “CoJo Nation.” His authentic style led to multiple offers from several major music labels, and he signed with Warner Music Nashville in June of 2018. Now on the roster of one of the country’s largest label groups, Johnson’s latest album, “Human: The Double Album,” reached the top three on Billboard’s Top Country Albums Chart.

As a former rodeo contestant, there was no one better to perform the Rodeo’s theme song, “Welcome to the Show,” which debuted in 2019.
