Texas country artist Cody Johnson will not be playing a series of scheduled shows this upcoming weekend due to being put on vocal rest by his doctor. “Unfortunately due to doctor’s orders, Cody will be unable to perform his tour dates that were scheduled in Atlanta, Knoxville and Greenville for this weekend,” his management said in a statement. “All tickets purchased for the original dates will be transferred to the new/rescheduled dates. We are very sorry that this has happened but we thank you for all of your support and understanding on this matter.”
Performances scheduled at Cotton Eyed Joe in Knoxville, TN for November 30th, as well as weekend performances at the Variety Playhouse in Atlanta, GA, and The Blindhorse Saloon in Greenville, South Carolina have all been rescheduled for next spring. The Cotton Eyed Joe show will now be on March 2nd, 2019, the Variety Playhouse will now be March 21st, and the Blindhorse Saloon will now be May 3rd.
Cody Johnson has been hitting the road hard and heavy in preparation for the release of his first major label record, Ain’t Nothin’ To It on January 18th. Ahead of the release, five songs have been made available EP style. He’s also released a single called “On My Way To You,” which is doing surprisingly well on radio so far from a Nashville outsider, currently sitting at #29 on radio and rising, and #33 on the Billboard Hot Country Songs chart.
In June, Warner Music Nashville signed a deal with Cody Johnson to form CoJo Music/Warner Music Nashville. The deal means Cody Johnson is part of one of the biggest label groups in country music, but still retains a certain level of control under his long-standing, completely independent, and personally-owned record label Cojo Music. His last record, 2016’s Gotta Be Me debuted at #2 on the Billboard Country Albums chart, and #11 on the all-genre Billboard 200.
