Warner Music Nashville Platinum recording artist, Cody Johnson truly never misses. Today, the singer-songwriter is sharing his newest song to date with fans. Johnson’s new song, “The Painter” is officially out now. The song marks the first single off the singer’s upcoming fourth studio album.

Written by Benjy Davis, Kat Higgins and Ryan Larkins, “The Painter’ is a beautiful song about true love. While Johnson did not have a hand in penning this song, it is evident that he related to the lyric. “My favorite lyric in ‘The Painter’ is ‘for every wall I built, she saw a canvas,'” shared Johnson in a recent press release. “If there’s anything that describes my marriage with my wife, Brandi, it’s that line and that’s why we’ve been together for 15 years.”

Johnson goes on to share that he hopes fans truly listen to the message behind this beautiful new song. “I hope my fans are encouraged to take the time to appreciate the people they have around them. The ones who make their life beautiful and bring all the beautiful colors to their world when it could just be black and white and dark. Remember them and tell them you love them.”

“Gets excited about all my crazy dreams // Got every sunset that she’s ever seen memorized // Saves them and waits for a rainy day or stormy night // Sky’s brighter looking at it through her eyes // I don’t remember life before she came into the picture // Brought the beauty I was missing with her // Showed me colors I ain’t never seen // She took chances // For every wall I build, she saw a canvas // Thank God everyday for how he made her // My life was black and white, but she’s the painter”

Johnson’s new song is one of the most romantic songs of 2023. The beautiful imagery throughout this song is both special and heartfelt. “The Painter” is a must listen to!
