Like so many Texan country singers, Cody Johnson doesn’t like to stray far from home. He’s fond of hardwood honky tonk and sultry ballads that suggest another time, sounds that evoke many different eras of Texas country music. Gotta Be Me still manages to sound individualistic because Johnson imprints this album — his fifth, and his second to make its way on the Billboard Country charts — with a sense of personality.

Best Entertainer in Texas / Red Dirt Music
Cody Johnson and his band will give you every ounce of energy they have in their shows!
