As he gears up to release his new live album, Cody Johnson has been unveiled as the halftime headliner for The American Rodeo 2023.
Billed as Western Sports' most lucrative single-day event, with a $1 million prize on offer, the rodeo will be taking place on March 11.
In 2023, The American Rodeo will be marking its tenth anniversary, and it's hard to think of an artist better suited to help them celebrate than Cody Johnson. Not only does he boast a famously high-powered live show, but he also began his career in the rodeo ring.
Before he had aspirations of being a country singer, Johnson was a professional bull rider. Growing up in Texas, the invitation to become the 2023 The American Rodeo's halftime entertainer will feel like a homecoming of sorts for the man known to his fans as ‘CoJo’.
Cody Johnson is set to release his Cody Johnson & The Rockin‘ CJB Live album on December 2. The project will give attendees at the 2023 rodeo event a taste of what they can expect from his hotly anticipated set.
The news as the cherry on top of a fruitful year for Johnson, with his single, ‘‘Til You Can't’ recently receiving two CMA 2022 awards, along with a 2023 Grammy nomination for Best Country Song.
