Cody Johnson to perform at RodeoHouston after Old Dominion cancels

HOUSTON -- Houston Livestock Show and Rodeo™ officials have announced that Cody Johnson will be the new entertainer for the March 8 performance of RodeoHouston® in NRG Stadium after Old Dominion had to cancel.

“Cody Johnson will be a great addition to our 2017 RodeoHouston lineup,” said Joel Cowley, the Show’s president and CEO. “We welcome this talented Texas singer to our stage as we honor the men and women of our military on Armed Forces Appreciation Day.”

Old Dominion canceled its RodeoHouston® performance due to death in a band member's family.

“Our hearts go out to the members of Old Dominion,” said Joel Cowley, Show president/CEO. “They have lost an immediate family member of the band and respectfully cancelled their appearance to allow time to mourn. We understand and support their decision.”

Tickets previously purchased for the March 8 RodeoHouston performance are still valid. Refunds will be given to the original ticket purchaser if requested before March 8, 8 a.m. See the attached details for refund information.
