Even more ironic, though, is that Cody wasn’t even nominated for a CMA Award this year, while Drew was nominated as the songwriter for Luke Combs’ “Forever After All,” which was up for Song of the Year.
Now, I know that Cody’s just breaking into mainstream country after being a massive name in the Texas scene for years now. And Drew is just now starting to break out for himself after writing some massive hits for guys like Luke Combs and Jake Owen.
But maybe this is a sign that real country guys in cowboy hats have just gotten too rare in country music these days.
I mean, apparently the only one mainstream country fans even recognize is Cody Johnson.
