Growing up in Sebastapol, Texas, Cody Johnson was first influenced from the music he heard from the honky tonks across the Trinity River. He learned drums and guitar and started writing songs while still in junior high. It wasn’t until later, when he hit the rodeo circuit, that he made his first album, selling self-financed CDs from his pickup as he chased the elusive eight-second dream. But broken bones and the cost of competition took their toll, and he eventually ditched life as a rodeo pro who played music on his off days to become a prison guard in Huntsville who played clubs on the weekends. The crowds began to grow, and he pieced together a string of hits on the Texas music charts and snagging the Texas Regional Radio Music Award as Male Vocalist of the Year.
In 2018, Johnson won Texas Regional Radio’s Male Vocalist again, while adding Album of the Year for “Gotta Be Me” and his single “Wild As You.” By then, he had already completed work on “Ain’t Nothin’ to It,” showing the full range of Johnson’s talents, from the acoustic tack of “Fenceposts” to the ultra-sexy “Nothin’ On You” to the rockin’ country blues of “Honky Tonk Mood.” Particularly revealing are his vocal performances on the thoughtful, album-launching title track and in “On My Way To You,” the classic-country ballad that emerged as the first single.
Treena Parvello, Director of Public Relations and Communications for the Tohono O’odham Gaming Enterprise, said, “Cody Johnson is known for his passionate and rowdy concerts, giving country fans the thrill they’re looking for on a night out! Desert Diamond Casinos & Entertainment can’t wait to bring Cody Johnson to the Diamond Center for Southern Arizona fans on April 27!”
