The moment Chris Stapleton tore into "I Was Wrong" Thursday night inside NRG Stadium, you could almost feel RodeoHouston shift into the next gear.
The season has so far seen solid sets from Texas country stalwarts Aaron Watson and Cody Johnson. Both brought energy and charm to the revolving stage.
But Stapleton was something different, a dynamic mix of style, genres and star power. It set a sky-high bar for the rest of the month's shows.
Cody Johnson said he'd waited his entire life to play the RodeoHouston stage. But it wasn't supposed to happen this year.
Johnson was a last-minute replacement for Old Dominion, who dropped out Monday because of a death in a band member's family.
The former rodeo rider and prison guard made the most of the opportunity and turned NRG Stadium into the world's biggest Texas honky-tonk.
Following Aaron Watson's solid Tuesday show, it was a Texas country double play.

Aaron Watson always had dreams of playing for thousands of people inside a cavernous Houston stadium. But those visions didn't always involve guitars and cowboy hats.
"I wanted to play shortstop for the Houston Astros until I was about 20. Then I realized I was an incredibly average short stop with a lot of heart and hustle," says the country singer who was born in Amarillo and spent summers in Houston.
It was only a matter of time before Aaron Watson made it to the RodeoHouston stage. The Texas country singer, who's been at it for almost a decade, opens the 2017 season. And he calls it a dream come true.
"I played one of the small side stages to about 20 people (in 2002), and I can remember hearing the roar of the crowd in the stadium where Tim McGraw was playing that night," Watson says.
"I thought to myself, 'Someday, I'm gonna play the big show at the rodeo.' "
