With artists on the fast track to King status like Cody Johnson to the friends he’s shining his spotlight on along the way like Ian Munsick, it’s a great time to be a honky-tonkin country music fan. These two troubadours recently got together to pull off a track worthy of the best two-step on sawdust-covered dance floors in the south titled “Love Live Cowgirls” and we can’t wait for you to listen too!
