Cody Johnson recently sold out Rodeo Houston. Doing so he became the first independent act to accomplish the feat -- and if it weren't for damn Garth Brooks, he'd have had the biggest crowd at the rodeo this year.

But, you know Garth, gotta have all the records. Who, by the way, sold out both his shows, book-ending Rodeo Houston, and setting a new attendance record on the final night of the concert series.

Johnson has been singing a brand new song called, “Dear Rodeo," at shows. We wanted to pass it on, just in case it'd been a while since you've made it to a CoJo show. The above video is from his sold out show at Rodeo Houston a couple weekends ago. Below is an acoustic version.
