Cody Johnson Takes Batting Practice With The Houston Astros Before Singing The National Anthem On Opening Day

Cody Johnson country music

We all know Cody Johnson as the Texas country icon, who brought that sound to mainstream country music back in 2018 when he signed with Warner Music Nashville.

Not to mention, he saw a ton of success with his major label debut album, Human: The Double Album, where he reached number one with his smash hit single “‘Til You Can’t.”

But, we can’t forget that he’s a jack of many trades.

Before he fully embarked on his country music career, he spent time working in the Texas prison system, and was also a rodeo cowboy.

And now, he can add to that list of trades, as the guy was seen smashing baseballs while taking batting practice with the Houston Astros.

As several of the players looked on, they couldn’t help but admire CoJo’s swing.

Needless to say, it’s obvious that he’s done this before.

And after he stepped out of the cages, Cody then stepped up to sing the National Anthem to kick off the 2023 season for the Astros.

Man, these guys really are living the dream out here. Playing in front of sellout crowds while being one of the top faces in all of country music, and even getting to take batting practice with some of the best players in the MLB.

That’s what we like to call “living the dream.”

Cody’s going to have a busy few months, from being out on tour to getting ready to make yet another appearance at the CMT Awards, where he’s gearing up to perform a legendary Lynyrd Skynyrd tribute alongside Paul Rodgers, Billy Gibbons, Slash, Warren Haynes, Wynonna Judd, and more, in honor of the all-time great southern rock band’s 50 year anniversary of their 1973 debut album, Pronounced ‘Lĕh-‘nérd ‘Skin-‘nérd.

They’re also paying homage to the band’s longtime guitarist and founding member Gary Rossington, who passed away earlier this month.
