Cody Johnson took the stage (and the audience's breath away) at the 59th annual Academy of Country Music (ACM) Awards in Frisco, Texas on Thursday (May 16) with an intimate performance of 2023 hit single, "Dirt Cheap."

The lights were low and the stage was set as the country music king delivered a touching performance of the Leather track in his home state. The standout single made its debut at the Grand Ole Opry in Nashville, Tennessee last month, and fans still cannot get enough of the heartwarming track. The "Diamond in My Pocket" star delivered an unforgettable performance with just a spotlight, and his guitar as he serenaded the crowd dressed in a suit jacket and cowboy hat in true CoJo fashion.

The Texas native is currently on a North American tour with performances scheduled through the middle of December. He is slated to take the stage in Iowa for his next show on Friday (May 17).

Other artists that took the stage at this year's ACM Awards included Reba McEntire, Thomas Rhett, Chris Stapleton, Parker McCollum, Jason Aldean, Laney Wilson, Blake Shelton and Gwen Stefani, Kelsea Ballerini and Noah Kahan, and more! Fans can stream the magic that was the 2024 ACM Awards on Prime Video immediately following the live broadcast, and rewatch it on Amazon Freevee and the Amazon Music app for free the following evening.
