Jamey Johnson Background
music artist Jamey Johnson was brought up in Montgomery. As a child, he was inspired by country music luminaries like Alan
Jackson, Hank Williams, Alabama, Waylon Jennings and Vern Gosdin. Although his family didn't have much money, they were rich
when it came to music. He caught the bug for performing in front of an audience when he would sing gospel, joined by his father,
As a teen, Johnson earned enough cash to buy himself an acoustic guitar. He coined it "Old Maple," which
he still has today. Although Johnson was brought up in the sticks, he always remained committed to music and even took up
music theory in junior high school. Once he graduated from high school, Johnson put a couple of years in at Jacksonville State
University. He ended up leaving college and became a Marine. He served close to a decade in the reserves before he was honorably
After the Marine Corps, Johnson took to the stage, making the rounds at Montgomery-area clubs. He even landed
an opening slot for David Allan Coe. At the dawn of the millennium, Johnson put all of his money toward a relocation to Music
City. To pay the bills, he took a number of odd jobs and even ran his own construction business. Even though the construction
company proved to be successful, he never strayed away from focusing on his true love of music. He continued to network, and
his efforts panned out when he met Greg Perkins, who used to play fiddle for the legendary Tanya Tucker.Perkins was instrumental
in helping Johnson cut some demos.
Eventually, Johnson was introduced to Buddy Cannon, a renowned songwriter/producer.
Cannon was immediately impressed with Johnson's talents. Johnson then earned a publishing contract with EMI Music, orchestrated
by Gary Overton. In 2005, Johnson achieved his first big break as a songwriter when he penned "Honky Tonk Badonkadonk," which
singer Trace Adkins took to No. 2 on the charts. Around that time, Overton and Cannon joined forces to get Johnson a shot
at recording. Their efforts culminated into a contract with BNA. Johnson debuted with "The Dollar," in 2005, which landed
at No. 14. His first album arrived a year later, also titled The Dollar. Unfortunately, The Dollar didn't make any waves and
BNA ended up dropping Johnson.
After his business relationship with BNA ended, Johnson concentrated on his music and
also took the time to evaluatethe way he was living. He quit drinking for a year and later on said that his rowdy reputation
most likely contributed to BNA's decision. On his website, he said, "They thought I was a little too wild. They did what they
had to do. If I was in their position, I'd have probably done the same thing." Johnson continued to soldier on with his songwriting,
which served him well.
One of Johnson's big claim-to-fame moments came with "Give It Away," a popular song he crafted
with Cannon and Whisperin' Bill Anderson. The tune earned George Strait his 41st No. 1 hit on the Billboard country music
charts. Johnson is also noted for "Ladies Love Country Boys" and "I Got My Game On," both recorded by Adkins. Joe Nichols
also did a couple of Johnson's tunes "Another Side of You" and "She's All Lady."
While Johnson was on hiatus, he assembled
an arresting collection ofsongs that culminated into an album: That Lonesome Song. Although many labels were impressed with
Johnson's work, it was Mercury Records that secured the deal with Johnson, not wanting him to change a thing.
Song arrived in 2008, and both the media and fans welcomed the effort with open arms. The album garnered five Grammy nods
and his heartfelt track, "In Color," claimed accolades as well.
Today, Johnson continues to work on his music and play
to sold-out crowds.
