Gold & Gold Productions/Red Boot Live are thrilled to announce 2 more Canadian dates for platinum-selling, #1 hitmaker Cody Johnson’s “Leather Tour”. Saskatoon, SaskTel Centre, Saturday, August 3rd and London, Budweiser Gardens, Saturday, August 10th, 2024.
Known for his explosive live shows and electrifying stage presence, COJO Music / Warner Music Nashville Platinum recording artist Cody Johnson has established a following of passionately loyal fans who regularly sell out shows across the United States. MusicRow predicted Cody “just might be the future of real country music” as his career has skyrocketed with three celebrated albums, Human The Double Album, A Cody Johnson Christmas and Cody Johnson & The Rockin’ CJB Live, and an award-winning feature-length documentary “Dear Rodeo: The Cody Johnson Story.”
He has 17 career RIAA certifications, a Pandora Billionaire Award and over 5 billion global streams.His numerous industry honors include recognition as a CMT Artist of The Year, three CMT Music Awards wins, two CMA Awards and being named “Best New Country Artist” at the iHeart Music Awards. Cody spoke exclusively to Billboard abou his new album “Leather” released November 3rd as being ‘authentic.’ “People appreciate authenticity, whether it’s me being a cowboy and singing something that reminds people of ‘90s country stuff they grew up on, or someone like the Zach Bryans and guys that are more like what probably is considered Americana, or Jelly Roll, who is completely the opposite of me, musically,” Johnson says. “But authenticity is the common thread.” Writer Jessica Nicholson asked how the album’s cover art came to be, “I was working at the ranch that day, so I told my photographer Chris Douglas to come over,” Johnson tells Billboard. “That’s blood and hair in that picture from castrating bulls and giving them shots that day. We didn’t stage any of that. We got started at 5:00 a.m. and worked all day and he ended up getting some incredible photos while we were working.”
The New York Times touted Leather’s first radio single “The Painter” as “one of mainstream country’s sturdiest performers, extends his streak of music that’s deeply earnest, unflashily produced, and a blend of emotionally stoic and trembling. It’s the lead single from ‘Leather,’ his third studio album on a major label after a long and robust independent career.”
Tour Dates: Saturday, August 3rd – SaskTel Centre – Saskatoon, SK Saturday, August 10th – Budweiser Gardens – London, ON
