SIKESTON JAYCEE BOOTHEEL RODEO ANNOUNCES NEW FRIDAY NIGHT ACT
SIKESTON, Mo.: With much anticipation the Sikeston Jaycee Bootheel Rodeo Board of Directors are excited to announce the entertainment to follow Friday night’s Rodeo events. ACM New Male Artist of the Year nominee Cody Johnson will take the stage Friday, Aug. 7, 2020.
“A former rodeo bull-rider himself, Cody’s authentic brand of country music makes him a good fit for our Rodeo,” said Travis Deere, 2020 Rodeo chairman. “The energy he brings to the stage is explosive and electrifying. Fans won’t want to miss the opportunity to see him in concert.”
Johnson has established a loyal fan base and has accrued over one billion career streams. He has several top-charting singles, and recently “On My Way To You” was RIAA certified Platinum marking his first Top 10 hit at country radio. He’s been named one of The Tennessean’s “Nashville’s Next Stars,” MusicRow’s “2019 Next Big Thing,” iHeartRadio’s “Artists to Watch in 2019,” and highlighted on Pandora’s “Artist to Watch 2019” playlist.
