Johnson discovers "Whoever's in New England"

Friday, November 27, 2020 – Cody Johnson released the audio from his version of Reba McEntire's hit "Whoever's in New England."

The video, filmed at Orb Recording Studio in Austin, features Johnson solo with just his vocals and guitar.

The Texas-native teamed up with McEntire for a duet version of his current country radio single "Dear Rodeo." Written as a tribute to Johnson's previous career in bull-riding, the song struck a chord with McEntire, who grew up on a family ranch competing in barrel racing. Co-written by Johnson and Dan Couch, "Dear Rodeo" is featured on Johnson's major-label debut album "Ain't Nothin' To It." The record also features Gold-certified single "Nothin' On You" and Platinum-certified debut single "On My Way To You."
