Cody Daniel Johnson is an American country music singer-songwriter. He has self-released six albums, including Gotta Be Me, which debuted at number two on Billboard's Country Albums chart, before releasing his first major-label album, Ain't Nothin' to It, in January 2019. He released his second major-label album, Human: The Double Album, in October 2021.

Johnson's style is classified as contemporary country and neo-traditionalist country, drawing influences from artists like George Strait and Willie Nelson. His song Til You Can't won two awards at the Country Music Association Awards in 2022.


In 2006, he formed the Cody Johnson Band with his dad, Carl, and drummer Nathan Reedy. Together they recorded an album, Black and White Label. In 2006, the band added Matt Rogers on lead guitar, and recorded a live album, Live and Rocking, at Shenanigans and Confetti's Club in Huntsville. Following the release of the album, Johnson's father quit the band.

By 2009, Danny Salinas joined the band on bass guitar. Their first professionally produced album, Six Strings One Dream, was released in September 2009, and from the album, three singles reached the top 10 of the Texas music charts. Following the album's release, the band added Chris Whitten on fiddle and Jeff Smith on lead guitar. Jody Bartula replaced Whitten on fiddle in 2010.

Johnson's next album, A Different Day, produced by Trent Willmon, was released in 2011. He won the 2011 Texas Regional Music Award for New Male Vocalist of the Year, and following this, left his day job with the Texas Department of Criminal Justice to focus on music full-time. He teamed with Kyle Park in 2012 for the Dancin' and Drinkin' at Johnson Park Tour. Also in 2012, Johnson's band, now composed of Reedy, Smith, Bartula, and bassist Joey Pruski, changed their name to the Rockin' CJB's.

Johnson's fifth album, Cowboy Like Me, was released on January 14, 2014. It was his second album to be produced by Trent Willmon. Selling 8,000 copies in its first week of release, it debuted at number 25 on the Billboard Top Country Albums chart and number 33 on the Billboard 200. As of 2014, Johnson's band comprised Smith, Bartula, Pruski, and drummer Miles Stone.

The sixth album, Gotta Be Me, was released on August 5, 2016. The album debuted at No. 11 on the Billboard 200, and at No. 2 on the Top Country Albums chart, selling 23,000 copies in the US in its first week. It was Johnson's most successful release to date, achieved without major label support or widespread radio play.

Johnson made Houston Livestock Show and Rodeo history in March 2018 by becoming the first unsigned/independent artist to play to a sold-out crowd.

Johnson's seventh album, Ain't Nothin' to It, was released on January 18, 2019. It includes the single "On My Way to You", which was his first Top 40 hit on Country Airplay. The album and single were both released via Warner Bros. Records Nashville. In 2019, he collaborated with Brooks & Dunn on a new version of their hit song "Red Dirt Road" which appears on their album Reboot.

Johnson's eighth album, Human: The Double Album, was released in October 2021.
