About Jamey Johnson
Originating from sweet Alabama, Jamey was born in 1975 and would
spend most of his childhood growing up in Montgomery. He would catch the country music bug at a young age, listening to local
acts such as the aptly named Alabama and Alana Jackson. Jamey would eventually end up at Jacksonville State University for
two years before dropping out to join the marines. Jamey would already be involved in songwriting and would entertain his
fell corpsman with his tunes, and his time in the marines would influence his songwriting, especially during his early years.
Upon leaving the Marine Corps, Jamey would start performing locally before moving to the heartland music mecca of Nashville,
Tennessee to devote himself to his country music career.
Upon reaching Nashville, Jamey would self produce and self
release They Call Me Country, his first ever full length release. The album would open up avenues in the local music scene,
where Jamey would eventually meet Greg Perkins. Greg was a well connected local musician and would offer Jamey a spot singing
a duet tape with established artist Gretchen Wilson. Jamey would use the duet to become even more keyed into the local scene,
working with Nashville influential musicians: Buddy Cannon, Trace Adkins, Randy Houser, and Jessie James.
would sign Jamey in 2005, but the label wouldn't stand by Jamey as his second single failed to gain popularity and Jamey would
experience further turmoil at home as he and his wife divorced. This would spur Jamey to focus on songwriting, co-writing
a number of hits and even being a driving factor behind the Fox TV show Nashville. After years of hard work, Jamey would be
signed by Mercury Nashville Records in 2008, and not a year later, Jamey would be nominated for a 2009 CMA New Artist of the
Year award. Between Jamey's perseverance and his unmatched musical talent, he finally got the big break he always deserved.
Three albums and countless hits later, Jamey is one of the most dearly regarded Nashville acts playing today.
Jamey Johnson's first break into the mainstream was with his 2005 album The Dollar. Release on BNA Records, The
Dollar would come on strong carried by the similarly titled single "The Dollar" which would chart at #14 on the Billboard
Hot Country Songs chart. Jamey would receive sour news as his second single "Rebelicious" would not do as well and ultimately
end with him parting ways with BNA Records. After a brief hiatus, Jamey would be back at it, co-writing a plethora of huge
hits including "Give It Away" with Bill Anderson, "Ladies Love Country Boys" and "I Got My Game On" with Trace Adkins, and
"Another Side of You" with Joe Nichols.
After almost two years of being out of the spotlight, Jamey would release That
Lonesome Song in 2008 with hit single "In Color", which would break the Top 40 in 2008 peaking at #9. His second single "High
Cost of Living" would also perform well, and overall the album would be certified gold - a milestone for Jamey. His success
would be cemented with his 2010 release The Guitar Song, which would receive universal acclaim and hit #4 on the Billboard
200, as well as top the Billboard country album chart. The album would be carried by the single "Playing the Part" and would
be Jamey Johnson's biggest hit to date.
Johnson's single "Playing the Part" would have a music
video directed and starring Matthew McConaughey. McConaughey's big role in the music video? A dancing gorilla.
performed a collaboration album in 2012 which was a tribute to music icon Hank Cochran. The collaboration included artists
Elvis Costello and Willie Nelson, amongst others.
