It was the first of many Concerts for the Coast. Net proceeds going to the COJO foundation. The foundation will directly help those affected in the many coastal communities throughout Texas.
Cameran Nelson kicked off the show. The crowd was excited to hear he’s been working on new tunes and will have a new album coming out soon. His last album release was a Good Thing Going in 2015.
Koe Wetzel brings his own brand of Texas rock and roll and is always a crowd favorite. Koe is gaining popularity and has a strong following with the college-aged crowd.
Roger Creager a tried and true troubadour. Reminiscing with the crowd about his first time playing at Wolf Pen while still a student at A & M and watching fans jump in the well known moat at Wolf Pen. He is a native of Corpus and the relief effort is near and dear to his heart.
Roger took a break from playing his hits to thank Cody for his hard work in the immediate aftermath of Hurricane Harvey.
Cody cancelled tour dates to load trailers of supplies and deliver them to shelters. Creager told fans that he will be soon be collaborating with many of Texas Country Artists in a Hurricane relief song. The proceeds of which going to Hurricane victims.

As the sun began to set on the evening, Cody Johnson, a rising country star touring in support of his sixth studio album Gotta Be Me, took the stage to a crowd of thousands. His latest album is currently debuting at number two on the Country Music charts.
His voice draws you in and his shows are electric. Being an independent artist, he has built his following based on fan support and very little radio airplay.
He has been selling out show after show across the country. He is pure country and poised to make an even larger impact on the country music scene. He wrapped the evening by thanking the crowd for raising $110k for hurricane relief with Bud Light pledging an additional $20k.
His show is definitely one to see. Get out and support a Concert for the Coast show with net proceeds going to the COJO foundation to benefit relief efforts in the affected communities. The next two concerts for the Coast will be in Beaumont and Corpus.
