Cody Johnson proved the show must go on Saturday night at his show at Appalachian Arena in Pikeville, Kentucky.
Right before the ‘Til You Can’t’ singer was about to go on stage, a transformer blew outside the arena, knocking the power out in the arena and surrounding areas.
Rather than calling it a night and refunding tickets, Johnson told fans “there’s no way we’re leaving so stick around.”
The crew wired a microphone and speakers using extension chords powered by the tour bus generator and they were able to continue acoustically until the power came back on.
