When you step up to the plate to do a Garth Brooks cover, you better be ready to hear the critics when you're done. I guess the only exception would be if you were to sing Callin' Baton Rouge. We can sing that drunk and not care!

Johnson took the virtual stage with Country Cast along with his fiddle player to do an unplugged version of the iconic Garth Brooks song.

"I'm scared to death right now."

Those were just about his last words as he started playing the legendary song. I'll be the first to be honest about Cody Johnson. I am not a huge fan. I really don't know why, but I know there are a lot of CoJo people out there. After hearing him nail this cover, I believe I am now all about some CoJo Nation.
