Cody Johnson celebrated not one, but two, career milestones this past week.
First, Johnson became the third artist ever to sell out the opening night of RodeoHouston, following records set in previous years by Garth Brooks (2018) and George Strait (2017).

Johnson played to a sold-out crowd of 70,554 fans, kicking off the Houston Livestock Show and Rodeo’s 90th anniversary season (following a forced hiatus in 2020 and 2021).
Following his fourth appearance on the RodeoHouston stage, the superstar was inducted into The Texas Cowboy Hall of Fame with the Spirit of Texas Award.
Johnson was part of the class of 2022 Honorees that also included Patti Colbert, Wilson Franklin, Scharbauer Cattle Company, and Dr. Charles “Bud” Townsend.
To celebrate the milestone occasion, Johnson attended and performed at the ceremony, which was held on Thursday night (March 3) at Billy Bob’s Texas in Fort Worth.
Proceeds from the ceremony benefitted the Texas Cowboy Hall of Fame 501(c3) and its ongoing education programs, and Western lifestyle preservation efforts.
The superstar continues to make his way up the charts with his powerful single, “Til You Can’t” from his critically acclaimed major-label sophomore release, Human The Double Album.
The song is currently sitting in the Top 5 at country radio and is poised to reach the No.1 position in the coming weeks.
