On Wednesday (Jan. 16), just two days before releasing his major label debut Ain't Nothin' To It, Cody Johnson stopped by NBC's Today show to perform his current single "On My Way to You," a sweet song about finding your way to your soulmate.
When asked by the hosts what "On My Way to You" means to him, Johnson said the song reflects his own journey.
"To me it describes the journey to my wife and my two little girls," Johnson said. "From growing up and being a boy turning it into a man with a good life. And also my career--there's been some bumps and bruises along the way. It hasn't always been great."
Johnson co-released Ain't Nothin' To It on CoJo Records in conjunction with Warner Music Nashville on Jan. 18. He's previously released six independent albums, including 2014's Cowboy Like Me and 2016's Gotta Be Me, which included the singles "With You I Am" and "Wild as You."
The Texas native, who spent time on the rodeo circuit before focusing on music, is one of the most successful artists in the Lone Star State and one of the fastest rising artists in the country scene. "On My Way to You" is currently at No. 24 on the Billboard Country charts.
