Platinum-selling COJO Music/Warner Music Nashville recording artist Cody Johnson began his morning with big smiles upon learning he received four nominations for the upcoming “56th Annual CMA Awards” taking place in Nashville on November 9.
Cody’s nominations include Male Vocalist of the Year, Single of the Year and Video of the Year, both for “’Til You Can’t,” and New Artist of the Year.
“Ever since I was a little kid, I’ve watched my hero’s accept CMA awards; to be nominated for four is an absolute honor!” shared Cody. “I stand for a unique brand of authentic country music, and to see it being recognized on such a huge platform makes all the years of hard work worth it!”
Two of Cody’s nominations recognize the tremendous success of his Platinum-selling, two-week #1 single “’Til You Can’t,” written by Ben Stennis and Matt Rogers. To date the song has garnered 394 million streams. “’Til You Can’t” was the first single off current album Human The Double Album and catapulted his growing presence in country music. In fact, the magnitude of this song helped to increase his worldwide streams by nearly One Billion in 2021, growing from Two Billion to nearly Four Billion streams and is averaging 35 million streams per week.
Media has touted the song’s praise claiming it “offers a powerful lesson in making the most of every moment — whether you’re spending time with loved ones or doggedly pursuing a goal. Sonically, it radiates the kind of clean, throwback ’90s country sound reminiscent of Alan Jackson and George Strait. The intensity in his voice making it clear that though he didn’t write this track, he connects with every lyric. This song is another solid song setting up Johnson as a fast-rising country music force not to be denied,” BILLBOARD, 50 Best Songs of 2022 So Far.
