Album Review

If this Alabama native and country music newcomer sounds like a veteran on his instantly infectious debut, that's because he is one. While in the Marine Corps Reserve from 1994 to 2002, Jamey Johnson perfected his singing style in the honky tonks of his home state. Upon moving to Nashville he did everything from selling signs to working for an industrial pumping company to rebuilding places devastated by natural disasters. And what makes a great artist in this genre if not these types of real-life experiences? The deep-voiced Johnson, who is also a lyrically insightful songwriter, once sang a duet with Gretchen Wilson on a demo for a publishing company, and he has the potential to be the Redneck Woman's male equivalent — or maybe the next Toby Keith — and not simply because one of the best tracks is the power ballad "Redneck Side of Me." It's also due to his colorful mix of hardcore honky tonkers (the title track, "Ray Ray's Juke Joint") and gentle ballads ("My Saving Grace") that blend the influences of great inspirations George Jones and Garth Brooks. Naturally, Jones' glorious harmonies are featured on the crunchy power ballad "Keepin' Up with the Jonesin'," giving Johnson an instant legitimacy as a potential country great. Comparisons aside, this hard-workin' artist has got the goods on a debut that can only be described as countrified brilliance.

great album

if you like this one, you like the other one. this man is bringing country back to where it should be. taylor swift, rascle flatts, sugarland and other like them are too comercial. crossover artists don't work with the true country format laid down by greats such as hank, waylon, paycheck, jones or merl, and carried on by the likes of alan jackson, toby keith, brooks and dunn, and aaron tippin. followed by shooter, hank III, jamey johnson, ray scott, trent tomlinson, jake owen, and chris young to name the few that stick out to me. i'm sure there are others that could be mentioned, but the majority of what is heard on country radio is not worth listening to. this album is full of good songs so take a listen and enjoy.

Real Music

This is real music. Nobody want to sings real country music anymore. They have no appreciation for real country artists. Most "country" artists now days are putiing on a show to make themselves feel better and then they label themselves country but the aint one bit. This is my music. I Love Jamey Johnson!

Great traditional

Yea! Hope we hear more of the classic country sound. So tired of country rock. Three cheers for Jamey.

Biography

Born: July 14, 1975 in Enterprise, AL

Genre: Country

Years Active: '00s, '10s

Singer/songwriter Jamey Johnson is just as comfortable mopping up the tears on the barroom floor with an old Hank Williams-style ballad as he is tearing the roof off with a honky tonk juggernaut. The Alabama native and former Marine rose to the top of the Nashville food chain through blood, sweat, and tears. Being raised in a devout and deeply musical family helped the new traditionalist find his voice, but it wasn't until he moved to Music City that the world began to take notice. After laying low...
