Cody Johnson lived the life of a country singer prior to becoming a professional country singer. As a teen, he competed in rodeos as a bull rider, then gravitated to work as a prison supervisor in early adulthood. Johnson decided to give country music a go in 2006, forming the Cody Johnson Band.
When Johnson isn’t on the road, the family at home in Texas. They live on a “small 25-acre farm” in the same town he grew up in, but he dreams of one day owning 250 acres or more in the Lone Star State. “My wife and I have always lived underneath our means.
The reason Cody Johnson quit riding bulls is simple: he just wasn’t good enough. Make no mistake who Johnson is singing about, however. “That one song is probably the hardest song I’ve ever played because I wanna tear up every night because it was so real,” The “On My Way to You” singer says.
