With more than one billion career streams, ACM New Male Artist of the Year nominee 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 the historic Ryman Auditorium and RODEO HOUSTON for the second consecutive year. Johnson’s first major release on COJO Music / Warner Music Nashville, 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 “On My Way To You” has been RIAA certified Platinum and marks his first Top 10 hit at country radio. 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. Johnson has been named 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.
