A country singer and songwriter out of East Texas, Cody Johnson grew up in the town of Sebastopol. Born into a musical family, he began playing guitar and singing at the age of 12, learning to play the drums soon after, and sang regularly at his church. He started his first band when he was a freshman at high school, dividing his time between music and his passion for competitive bull riding. Following school, he took a job with the Texas Department of Criminal Justice in Huntsville, where he supervised prison inmates. After winning the Texas Regional Music Award for New Male Vocalist of the Year, Johnson left his day job and began devoting himself full-time to music, continually gigging on the Texas club and bar circuit, where his rowdy, energetic, and passionate blend of country and rock brought him a large and loyal fan base. Three singles drawn from his Six Strings, One Dream album placed in the Top Ten of the Texas music charts. His second album, Cowboy Like Me, recorded in Nashville, was released early in 2014, and promptly hit the Top 40 of the U.S. album charts. ~ Steve Leggett
