Last Friday, Johnson made a triumphant debut at the Grand Ole Opry. Known for his dynamic, high energy shows, Johnson took a moment to showcase his softer side, performing his single along with the Gospel tune “I Can’t Even Walk (Without You Holding My Hand)” accompanied by his parents on background vocals. It was a memorable and moving moment for Cody, his family watching in the wings and the live audience who erupted with thunderous applause and a standing ovation.
Johnson’s live shows are dynamic, energizing and literally bursting at the seams with rowdy fans who can’t get enough of his authentic brand of country. His honest lyrics and powerful performances have created a grassroots, word of mouth groundswell that has spread across the nation.

Johnson has sold over 138,000 tickets to 28 headline shows since January 1st, performing in 14 states. An impressive 20 of the 28 shows sold out prior to day of show.
