CODY JOHNSON RETURNS TO SALEM WITH HIS ELECTRIFYING COUNTRY SOUND
SALEM CIVIC CENTER – SEPTEMBER 11, 2021
It has been two years since Cody Johnson filled the Salem Civic Center for one of his rowdy concerts and Salem is ready for more! On Saturday night, September 11, “CoJo” will take the stage with special guests and bring his Texas-style of country music back to Southwest Virginia. Joining Cody Johnson for his Salem show will be Franklin County's own Crawford & Power. This duo opened for Johnson in 2019 and fired up the crowd with their sound and energy. Also on the ticket is Nashville recording artist Ian Munsik. In 2017, Munsik released a self-titled EP, winning iHeartRadio’s Rocky Mountain Song of the Year for the rootsy “Horses Are Faster” and becoming the only artist who simultaneously qualified two tracks as finalists in the NSAI/CMT songwriting competition. Equipped with a full ready-for-release collection of songs, the 27-year-old signed his first major label deal earlier this year with Warner Music Nashville.
With more than 1.8 billion career streams globally, COJO Music/Warner Music Nashville recording artist Cody Johnson has clearly established a rabid following of loyal fans who thirst for his authentic brand of country music. The aptly named “COJO Nation” purchased half a million concert tickets in one calendar year and that group regularly packs shows across the country. Johnson sold-out over 45 shows in 2019, including his sellout performances at the historic Ryman Auditorium and RODEOHOUSTON for the second consecutive year.
His first major-label release “Ain’t Nothin To It” skyrocketed to No. 1 on both the Billboard Top Country Albums and All-Genre Digital Sales charts. Also reaching Top 10 on Billboard 200, it became the third-highest pre-added album of all time in the country music genre on Apple Music at the time of release. Johnson’s Platinum-certified “On My Way To You” has recently been named one of NSAI’s “10 Songs I Wish I’d Written 2020” and marks his first Top 10 hit at country radio. Now he returns to country airplay with his latest single “Dear Rodeo” - which Music Row described as “a beautiful piece of work,” going on to state Johnson “just might be the future of real country music.” A very personal tribute to Johnson’s previous bull-riding career, the reflective song struck a chord with fellow rodeo rider Reba McEntire, prompting the two to record a poignant duet version also available everywhere now.
