This is quite an honor for Cody Johnson. 'Wide Open Country' recently featured Cojo in an article this week calling him 'The New Texas'.

Here's what the magazine said about the East Texas native,

Johnson, 28, has been active in the Texas scene for a while, but his fanbase in the state has exploded in the last three years. He’s developed a brand of country that blends the polish of the mainstream with the traditional spirit of Texas, and it works. Plus, Johnson pours everything he’s got into each performance, and that’s what it takes to make a lasting impression in Texas.

We can't wait for this East Texas native to come back to West Texas!
