Look Out, Y’all! Cody Johnson Earns the 2nd Platinum Record of His Career
It's always been "just a matter of time" when it comes to Cody Johnson. My first CoJo show was around twelve years ago, and there were probably just about twelve people there. But guess what each one of those folks were completely captivated by him. Just like they are today.
As of today, The Recording Industry Association of America has certified five of the Texas singer’s songs gold or platinum.
Johnson has always had the swagger, he cut his teeth the old fashioned way, and has been able to write his own story. Along the way he's been able to stay true to himself and his own brand of country music. And it's the honesty that's made him so relatable to fans. And it's what keeps them coming back for more.
It's this innate sincerity that he just exudes, that's what had each one of those dozen or so folks at the Electric Cowboy in Tyler, Texas, crowded up on the stage or two-stepping on the dancefloor the entire night back in 2009.
Fast forward to today and Cody Johnson’s latest radio single is making headway, “’Til You Can’t” is up from No. 36 to No. 32 this week. But it's a few of his older songs that are grabbing even more attention.
As of today, The Recording Industry Association of America has certified five of the Texas singer’s songs gold or platinum. “Dance Her Home” and “Me and My Kind” from 2014, along with his 2016 release “Wild as You” have now been certified gold.
A song that to this day is still one of the most requested on Radio Texas, LIVE! his 2011 single, “Diamond in My Pocket” has now become his second platinum record. It joins his national breakout “On My Way to You” was certified platinum in 2020.
