Meet: Derek Johnson! Whose single "Real Cool Kinda Hot" debuted on Billboard Top 50 at #47 and made Country Music History
Meet the artist who just made history and is an all-American comeback story that is writing it day by day! His name is... Derek Johnson.
Born in the Deep South, in Mobile, Alabama, Derek is a 5th generation farm-boy, raised in small-town USA in towns the size of T-shirt pockets, who grew up hunting, fishing, hittin’ dirt roads, sittin’ around campfires, playing sports and lived on a 5,000 acre cattle ranch.
His Grandfather was roommates with Hank Williams Sr. and taught him guitar at a young age. It was through the heart of a Grandpa who instilled the ‘chasin’ that neon rainbow’ fire into the heart of this future star.
Derek served in the United States Army from 2012-2015 (Air and Missile Defense) and made Country Music and Billboard History by becoming the first Wounded Warrior to chart on the Billboard Chart! That's no small feat hitting the Billboard alone... but holding the title as the first to do something is pretty cool in itself.
Up next: His new single is set to release to Country Radio (Billboard / Hot Country Songs) in June... so, be sure to follow below as we countdown!
