Cody Johnson Throwdown is happening on Saturday at Lone Star Arena.

Opening acts will be Jacob Bryant and Parker McCollum.

“Hey Stephenville, I can’t wait to be there with my good friends. Come early and stay late, it's going to be a great time at Lone Star Arena!” Johnson said in an email to the E-T.

Johnson recently signed a deal with Warner Music. The partnership is a co-venture with Johnson’s own imprint— CoJo Music/Warner Music Nashville. The partnership allows an independent artist to have an equal partnership role in his label deal.

This year, Johnson broke history as the only independent artist in history to sellout NRG Stadium at Rodeo Houston, selling over 74,000 tickets, coming in just under Garth Brooks.

In 2017, he was the most streamed Indie Country Artist just behind Garth Brooks, The Dixie Chicks and Jewel - to the tune of 127 million streams that year, averaging 12 million streams/month.

A native of Sebastopol, Johnson was a semi-pro rodeo bull rider, then a prison guard at a maximum security prison before making music a full time profession.
