CoJo took to social media on Monday (April 29) to share his reaction. In the video, the song’s instrumental intro plays in place of the clip’s original audio as Johnson listens to the track. One doesn’t have to hear what’s going on to know when Travis’ vocals come in. Johnson sits up straight, looks wide-eyed at the camera operator, and adjusts his hat. It’s clear that he’s shocked. You probably could have knocked him out of his seat with a feather.

Clay Walker definitely wasn’t ready. He shared a video earlier this week showing his reaction to the new single. In the clip, he’s sitting in a room with Travis as the song plays. Hearing his old friend sing again clearly touched a nerve. He looks at Travis grinning a couple of times before laughing and having to fight back tears. In short, Walker embodied many fans’ reactions upon hearing “Where That Came From” this morning.
