Nashville, TN – (March 4, 2024) – Platinum-selling COJO Music/Warner Music Nashville recording artist Cody Johnson has the #1 song at country radio this week with “The Painter.”

Written by Benjy Davis, Kat Higgins, and Ryan Larkins and produced by Trent Willmon, the gold-certified song also becomes the biggest streaming single of his career with 200 million global streams to date.

“The Painter” was the first single off Cody’s new 12-track studio album Leather released last fall.

Cody chose the song for the record as its story mirrors his relationship with wife Brandi and her belief and support of his dreams and career.

During the 2023 CMA Awards, the creative for Cody’s performance played out on a video wall behind him as a slow revealing black and white sketch of Brandi and then morphing into a color painting by the end of the song.

“The Painter” received stellar song reviews by the media and charted on multiple year-end lists including Country Now, Holler MagazineNew York Times and Taste of Country.

Since the release of Leather, fans and radio stations have felt instantaneous reactions to many of the songs on the album, including “Dirt Cheap.” 

With nearly 55 million global streams with an average of 3.4 million streams per week, “Dirt Cheap” has become Cody’s new single and is impacting country radio now.

Cody continues his headline “The Leather Tour” on March 15 in Indianapolis at the Gainbridge Fieldhouse. Tickets on sale now at and
