When a fight broke out during a recent show at Coyote Joe’s in Charlotte, North Carolina, Cody stopped the show, and laid down the law.

“I’ve had a bad day too, I’ve been wanting to slap the sh*t out of somebody all day long…but it don’t mean you can do it while I’m trying to provide for my family. And if that’s a woman they just picked up off the ground, y’all beat his a** in the parking lot.”

According to the description of the video from You Tube: “An extremely drunk guy started a fight in the front row, sucker punching another man and a woman ended up on the ground hurt.”

Last Saturday Cody Johnson became the first independent act to sell out Rodeo Houston, roughly 74,000 people paid to see Johnson's headlining show.
