Happy Friday, folks!
It really is great to see the pendulum that is country music trends swinging back in the direction of a classic sound. I’ve got nothing against hip hop or pop music, but I’m just not a fan of the hybrid stuff (i.e. Florida George Line). I get it. Lots are or it wouldn’t be popular. I’m just not one of them. Call it a “chocolate in my peanut butter” thing.
Anywho, I’ve posted a ton about guys like Stapleton, Simpson, Boland, and Creager. However, it’s refreshing to see a new kid from Texas shooting for that old-school, George Strait, “burn the house down with a fiddle out front” kinda sound. And even better? He’s actually getting radio air play. Go figure.
Good on ya, Cody Johnson. You’re officially on my musical radar.
Check him out on YouTube here.
Have a great weekend, y’all!
