Texas country powerhouse Cody Johnson will be playing in the corridor on Friday, March 18. Even though the show's sold out you can win pit tickets to the concert here.

The Lone Star State native's concert will be the first sellout show at the new Xtream Arena in Coralville. The March 18 performance is one of more than 40 concerts Johnson is doing around the nation.

Johnson, 34, has come to the forefront nationally in recent years but has been playing music for more than two decades. He was just 12 years old when he started to craft his love of music.

After having three top ten singles on the Texas music charts from a 2009 album, Johnson won the Texas Regional Music Award for New Male Vocalist of the Year in 2011. An employee of the Texas Department of Criminal Justice at the time, he soon quit his day job to focus fully on his musical career.

Johnson's first national hit came in 2018 when "On My Way to You" made the Top 15:

Last year, he released a song that seemed to touch everyone. It would become his first number one song... "'Til You Can't":

Johnson also routinely records songs acoustically. This morning, he posted an acoustic version of "On My Way to You".

Easton Corbin and Ian Munsick will be joining Cody Johnson for the sold-out show in the Iowa River Landing on March 18. You can enter to win VIP Pit tickets through Sunday, March 13 at 11:59 p.m. below.
