Cody Johnson Becomes Third Performer To Sell Out Opening Night At RodeoHouston
Platinum recording artist Cody Johnson became the third performer ever to sell out opening night of RodeoHouston on Monday (Feb. 28). Following records set by Garth Brooks (2018) and George Strait (2017), the Texas native attracted a crowd of 70,554 fans to help launch the Houston Livestock Show and Rodeo’s 90th anniversary season.
Johnson worked the rodeo circuit as a bull rider before turning to music full time. Proving the circuit is in his DNA, his daughter, Clara Mae, competed in the mutton bustin’ event shortly before his set. This week’s appearance marked his fourth since 2017 when he first stepped in as a last-minute replacement for Old Dominion.
“Monday night was a historical night for myself as well as RodeoHouston; sold-out opening day!!” shares Johnson. “I can’t thank everyone enough for coming out and showing support to me and my band. Can’t wait to do it again next year!”
