Johnson’s “Dirt Cheap” has swiftly captured the hearts of fans, who are eagerly anticipating its impact on country radio.

“Easily a no-brainer from the label. That song connected the most with fans out of all of them on the album.”
“Best song lyrics I’ve heard in a long time. It’s a no doubter for a #1.”
“Song of the year…calling it now.”
“Yessss! LOVE that song! It deserves its time on radio.”

“Dirt Cheap” was initially offered to another country artist.

Josh Phillips disclosed that his song “Dirt Cheap” was originally intended for Luke Combs. However, fate had other plans as the track found its way into the hands of Cody Johnson.

“[Cody Johnson], thank you man. This song means the world to me & it’s so much more special knowing it means that much to you.”

Cody Johnson undoubtedly made the song his own!
