CoJo’s fixin’ to drop some more heat at country radio.
Cody Johnson officially has a new single on the way, the title track to his 2021 double album, “Human.” It’s the second single from the record, following his massive, multi-week #1 hit “‘Til You Can’t.”
Written by Tony Lane and Travis Meadows, he admits that he’s merely mortal and has struggles everyday trying to get through life and figure it all out.
At the iHeart Music Festival in Austin a couple weekends back, Cody explained why he chose the song as his next single, noting that, at the end of the day, no matter what you believe in, we’re all just human and doing the best we can:
“One thing we all have in common not just in the U.S. but across the world; no matter how you feel about politics, no matter how you feel about religion, no matter what race you are, no matter how much money you have in your bank account, whether you dress like me or like you do, one thing we all have in common is the fact we’re human.
We are all the same. We’ve gone through a lot in this country the last two years. We are all doing this together. We all have struggles even though they are different. This is why I chose this song to be the next single.”
Now that’s a message I can get behind…
Though it will be a big change in terms of tempo and production from his previous #1, don’t be surprised if this one eventually makes its way to the top spot, too.
The song will impact June on 6th:
He also performed it for the CMT Awards extended cut feature last month:
