This Cody Johnson Song is Making Big Waves in the Country Music World

By  | 

In January 2019, Texas country music singer Cody Johnson was scheduled for a performance on NBC’s Today. In a pre-show interview, he spoke about the parallels that his song “On My Way to You” has with his personal life and his relationships with his wife and family. Likewise, he noted that the song mirrored aspects of his country music career, and his rise to success as one of the decade’s most successful independent artists.

The best type of country music song seems to have the singer revealing his heart after experiencing life-altering moments that have peeled away various layers. Despite the fact that some of the industry’s top songs have the singers making daring outlaw-type statements, “On My Way to You” has left its mark on fans throughout North America. Although folks in Texas have long known this former-bull-rider-turned-singer, his appearance on the national scene as a traditional country singer has made waves in the industry.

Shared on the official Cody Johnson YouTube channel, the video for “On My Way to You” strikes just as much of a chord with his fans as the lyrics. He has remained consistent with his traditional sound, relying on themes of love, loss, and rodeo, but this one certainly hits the heartstrings hard and it’s definitely not one to be ignored. The album on which it was released, entitled “Ain’t Nothin’ To It,” came out on January 18, 2019. Prior to that and ever since, he’s been on a whirlwind of press and media stops, highlighting the album, and this song’s virtues in particular. His independent CoJo Music has partnered with Warner Music Nashville to help him make the most of his talents and opportunities. Fans won’t have to worry that any sacrifices in quality and style were made for this new album, however, since the songs featured were all written and recorded prior to the partnership coming about. With his imitable style, any true fan would know he wouldn’t sway on the very high level of taste and performance excellence he’s been known for on the basis of such a deal anyway. Is “On My Way to You” on any of your recent playlists? If not, give it a listen. In short order, you’ll be looking for it on Johnson’s digital distribution channels and playing it for your friends who haven’t yet found the value in pouring your heart out over a great country tune.
