NASHVILLE, Tenn. – (June 19, 2018) –Warner Music Nashville is proud to announce a partnership with acclaimed rising country artist Cody Johnson. With an independent catalogue six albums deep and nearly 300 million on-demand streams accumulated largely in the last year and a half alone, Johnson has already established himself as an industrious and talented Nashville staple. The Sebastapol, TX native started gaining traction in country music following a string of jobs ranging from amateur bull riding to working at the local prison. Billboard declared earlier this year, “Cody Johnson is the real thing” – his latest project hit No. 2 on the Top Country Albums chart and No. 11 on the Billboard 200.
Johnson has introduced himself to fans around the nation through years of extensive and successful touring, becoming the first independent artist to sell out the Houston Rodeo at NRG stadium earlier this year at nearly 75,000 tickets. From one corner of the country to another, the entertainer has sold out shows in more than two dozen states. In 2017 alone he sold over 350,000 hard tickets and hasn’t slowed since, having launched a nationwide tour in April that will continue through the summer. The newly minted CoJo Music / Warner Music Nashville singer / songwriter will join the WMN radio team and is represented by Durango Artist Management, Red 11 Music and HBPR
