Texas native and all around cowboy, Cody Johnson finds himself in the top spot on both the Mediabase Country and Billboard Country Airplay charts with his smash hit "The Painter." Penned by Benjy Davis, Kat Higgins and Ryan Larkins and produced by Trent Willmon, the track perfectly personifies the transformation that one has when they finally find their person. The gold-certified song also becomes the biggest streaming single of his career with 200 million global streams to date.

“My favorite lyric in ‘The Painter’ is ‘for every wall I built, she saw a canvas.’ If there’s anything that describes my marriage with my wife, Brandi, it’s that line. “And that’s why we’ve been together for 15 years," Cody previously shared of his connection to the track.

The Painter not only says I love you, but expands on all the emotive moments that follow. Cody’s classic tone is unmatched and narrates a story that only comes along once in a generation. But for Cody the truth that he finds in the song allows him to effortlessly deliver the tender track. Capturing each milestone and highlighting all the reasons he has fallen head over boots, The Painter is a beaming masterclass in what a love song should be.

I hope my fans are encouraged to take the time to appreciate the people they have around them. The ones who make their life beautiful and bring all the beautiful colors to their world when it could just be black and white and dark. Remember them and tell them you love them.”

Fans have flocked to the heartwarming song as well. Many fans even sharing their own love stories to the song on social media. Cody will be taking his new No 1. on the road with him this year as well. Check out the tour dates below.
