Cody Johnson is an electric performer and an avid supporter of our military members and first responders, but more importantly, he’s never been one to mince words about what he believes in. Especially, when it comes to his reverence for country music.
Performing last at the Wolf Pen Creek Amphitheater in College Station, Texas, CoJo drew a hard line in the sand on the whole “Old Town Road” conversation.
“If that’s country music, I will line up after this show and kiss every last single one of y’all’s ass. Don’t be mad at me just because I’m standing for something. I ain’t saying it ain’t a good song, it’s a great song, but it’s not country music, call it what it is. Stand for something.”
The crowd roared with approval.
“I can prove to every last one of y’all that that’s not a country music song with one chord on this guitar,” he said before strumming the opening riff of “Friends In Low Places.”
“Lil Nas my ass, let me do that again,” he continued before launching into one helluva country music medley featuring Garth Brooks, George Strait, Waylon and Willie, George Jones, Merle Haggard, Chris LeDoux, and Johnny Cash.
