Old Dominion out, Cody Johnson in for RodeoHouston performance

- Cody Johnson will be replacing the band Old Dominion on Wednesday, March 8 at the Houston Livestock Show and Rodeo™ after the group had to cancel following a death in the family.

“Cody Johnson will be a great addition to our 2017 RODEOHOUSTON lineup,” said Joel Cowley, Houston Livestock Show and Rodeo™ president and chief executive officer. “We welcome this talented Texas singer to our stage as we honor the men and women of our military on Armed Forces Appreciation Day.”

The group Old Dominion will not perform at RODEOHOUSTON® on Wednesday, March 8 as scheduled following the death of a band member’s relative.

“Our hearts go out to the members of Old Dominion,” said Cowley on Monday morning. “They have lost an immediate family member of the band and respectfully canceled their appearance to allow time to mourn. We understand and support their decision.”
