Known for his explosive live shows and electrifying stage presence, COJO Music / Warner Music Nashville Platinum recording artist Cody Johnson has established a following of passionately loyal fans who regularly sell out shows across the country. In the last year, Johnson, who MusicRow predicts “just might be the future of real country music,” has released a critically acclaimed, award-winning feature-length documentary (Dear Rodeo: The Cody Johnson Story), delivered two celebrated albums (Human The Double Album and A Cody Johnson Christmas), seen his gold-selling “’Til You Can’t” single reach the #1 position on both the Billboard Country Airplay and Mediabase charts in addition to the top spot on Billboard’s airplay, streaming and sales-based ‘Hot Country Songs’ chart, added more RIAA platinum and gold singles and album certifications bringing his career total to 12 certifications, played sold-out concerts and more. In fact, Johnson increased his worldwide streams by nearly One Billion in 2021, growing from Two Billion to over Three Billion streams.
Johnson’s new album Human The Double Album has received tremendous media praise making the ‘best-of’ lists with All Music (Favorite Country Albums of 2021, Human), Billboard (15 Best Country Songs of 2021, “’Til You Can’t), Holler (Country Records of the Year, Human), New York Times (Best Album of 2021, Human), Saving Country Music Best Mainstream Country Albums of 2021, Human), Taste of Country (Best Country Albums of 2021, Human and Top Country Songs of 2021, “’Til You Can’t), Yardbarker’s (Country Music’s Biggest Breakout Stars of 2021) and more.
With an inimitable voice the New York Times describes as “wholly different, thicker and more
throbbing, a caldron bubbling over,” Randy Houser racked up three consecutive No. 1 hits and
more than four million in singles sales to date with his Stoney Creek Records album, How Country Feels. He topped the charts with the title track, “Runnin’ Outta Moonlight” and “Goodnight Kiss” (also his first No. 1 as a songwriter) and earned critical acclaim for his powerful delivery of the Top 5 smash and CMA Song of the Year-nominated “Like A Cowboy.” Houser added a fourth No.1 to his catalogue with “We Went” from his 2016 album, Fired Up. Following 2019’s critically acclaimed Magnolia, Houser’s “Note To Self,” is available now, with more new music on the horizon in 2022.
