Cody Johnson

After landing two releases in the Top 10 of Billboard's country albums chart on his own CoJo label, and selling 74,000 tickets for a single show, Johnson earned recognition as the only unsigned artist in history to sell out NRG Stadium at Rodeo Houston. Johnson quickly became one of Texas' most-sought-after talents and finally agreed to sign with a major label. Warner Music Nashville won a Music Row sweepstakes and enticed Johnson, who had turned down several major labels before, to join the team and take a shot at turning a concert success story into one with multimedia, national hit-making credibility.
