If you’ve ever seen Cody Johnson live, you know what an animal he is on stage. Full-throttle, pure electricity, it’s what every up and coming artist should strive to be.

This past weekend, he made his country music debut at the legendary Ryman Auditorium in Nashville, in front of a sold out crowd of CoJo fans, and it was nothing short of incredible.

“Nashville. Thank you for letting me come and sing real country music in a place where all of my heroes have stood before,.” Johnson shared on Instagram following his performance. “I won’t ever forget my first sold out show at The Ryman, thank you CoJo Nation.”

The always classy Johnson also took time to honor all the members of his team, those who work tirelessly behind-the-scenes. He gave special thanks to his parents, his wife, children, manager, producer, band, crew, record label and all of the people who have impacted his musical career.

“I’m not gonna stand up here and pretend that I am the only one that got me to this moment,” he said.

CoJo is also on the cusp of his first Top 10 hit at country radio, so needless to say, it’s already been a HUGE year for Cody and we’re just getting started.
