The trophy went to both Johnson and visionary director Dustin Haney. Johnson has always been an independent artist. He self-published six albums, including 'Gotta Be Me,' which debuted at No 2 on theBillboard Country Albums chart and brought attention to the talented singer. It would not be until 2019 that he would sign a major deal and enjoy guaranteed mainstream success. 'Till You Can't' could be considered Johnson's dream single, which spent two weeks at No 1 in March.
