In May, the Ford Center in Evansville, Indiana made a surprise social media post that just about broke the proverbial internet.  Here's what they shared!

That concert announcement was ultimately shared over 800 times from the Ford Center's Facebook page.  Excitement about that concert has been building since and, with ticket sales officially announced for Friday, July 15th, that excitement is reaching a fever pitch.  Country music fans here in the tristate love Cody Johnson and they're ready to get another opportunity to see him.

It's been a few years since Cody has played in the area.  It was actually just before the COVID-19 outbreak that he was here last.  It was October 4th of 2019 that Cody came to Owensboro and headlined a show at the Sportscenter. The fans who were there (and a bunch who couldn't make that show) are glad he's finally coming back.

And, he'll be rolling into the Ford Center on Thursday, November 10th with special guest Randy Houser.

Of course, back in 2019, when Cody came to Owensboro, he was riding the success of his song "On My Way to You", which came oh so close to breaking the Top 10 on the Country Airplay chart.  It eventually peaked at #11.

Here's a great acoustic performance of that song and just little sample of what Cody sounds like live.

Cody's gigantic breakthrough came late last year with the release of his first #1, "Til You Can't" topped both the US Hot Country Songs and US Country Airplay charts. It's also a certified platinum single.

In keeping with the theme, here's a fantastic live performance of that song.  Cody appeared on The Tonight Show Starring Jimmy Fallon and knocked his performance out of the park.

Cody's latest single is the song "Human", which is currently climbing the charts. Here's his live performance from the CMT Music Awards.

There's no doubt that Cody has one of the best voices in country music right now.  And, for his 2022 tour stop in Evansville, he's bringing another huge voice with him.

Randy Houser will open the show on the 10th.  Randy, of course, has an absolutely killer voice of his own. And, in keeping with the spirit of sharing incredible live performances, here's one of Randy's signature songs.
