Cody Johnson’s ‘The Painter’ Music Video Is Released
Cody Johnson’s long-awaited music video for his hit song “The Painter” was released today (1/19). The video starts with a couple meeting for the first time in a bar, and he asks her to dance.
After they dance to a few Cody Johnson songs, the guy asks her to marry him. She says, “You’re crazy.” Cody then appears in black and white, singing the song outside. The video continues to show Johnson singing and cuts to the couple dancing and then their life moments together throughout the clip. As the song continues, Johnson’s black and white scenes of him singing slowly turn to color as his wife Brandi joins him in the video.
He told us of the song, “My favorite lyric in ‘The Painter’ is ‘For every wall I built, she saw a canvas.’ 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 added, “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.”
Johnson’s love song for his wife is in the top ten on the country charts this week. Cody did not write the song, but he relates to it so well. In a recent interview, he told us about the sweet song, “She does paint my world. Brandi and I have been together for fifteen years. Everybody thinks when they’re young and they get married, it’s all gonna be roses and rainbows, and it is not. There’s a lot of lows and a lot of downs along with the highs.”
Johnson added, “But when you look back on it, you feel like all of that was part of the beautiful part. All the bad goes along with the good to make it this beautiful thing we have called life together.”
He concluded, “If that’s not painting a picture, I don’t know what is.”
