811 Presents Cody Johnson & Friends on Saturday, August 11th

HOUSTON, TX —After a sold out performance in 2017, Sam Houston Race Park (www.shrp.com) and 811 are proud to announce that Cody Johnson will return to the Bud Light Stage in 2018!


Johnson, who in 2017 was the first ever artist to sell out the Sam Houston Race Park infield in the 24 years since the park’s opening, headlines another great summer show.


Johnson’s latest album, Gotta Be Me with hit singles such as “With You I Am” and “Wild As You”, made its debut at #1 on the iTunes Country Albums Chart and #2 on the Billboard Top Country Albums Chart. After selling out nearly every venue he’s played for the past year and a half, Cody Johnson is currently one of the hottest tickets in Country Music.


“We are ecstatic to be hosting Cody Johnson for the fourth year in a row, and his popular Cody Johnson & Friends show for the second year in a row.” Said Sam Houston Race Park Senior Vice President, Wayne Hodes. “Many thanks to 811 for jumping on board as the title sponsor of this great concert, which enables us to showcase Cody in front of his hometown crowd.”


Joining Cody Johnson on Saturday, August 11th, will be American Country artist Easton Corbin as well as two more performers that have yet to be announced.


Early bird tickets will go on sale this Friday, April 13th at 10am and go through Tuesday, April 17th, at 9:59am. Early Bird tickets will be available for $25 online at www.shrp.com or by calling 281-807-8700. The early bird pricing point is courtesy of 811. Always call 811 before you dig.
