Cody Johnson made an appearance on Today to perform a bare-bones rendition of his latest single, “On My Way to You.”
Sporting a crisp lavender shirt and a ten-gallon hat, the rising country singer sure looked the part—and he sounded like it, too. Backed by acoustic guitar and fiddle, the singer nailed the sentimental song with his strong yet tender vocals.
“I’ve spent the last ten years being an independent artist, doing it what people call ‘the hard way,’ and so it’s really nice whenever you start to make some momentum,” Johnson told the hosts of Today. “It’s fun but, y’know, I try to keep my head down and just do my job. I don’t really think about all of it too much.”
“On My Way to You” is Johnson’s lead single from his upcoming major label debut, Ain’t Nothin’ to it, out this Friday. Watch his live performance below:
