- The Basics
Jamey Johnson is that rare beast — a Nashville liberal — which has set him apart from most of his blue-collar contemporaries and aligned him with country-outlaw legends Merle, Willie, and Waylon, as well as more recent dissenters the Dixie Chicks. The fact that he's a former marine with the hirsute stylings of a backwoods mountain man, who has co-written great songs for others (including George Strait, Trace Adkins, and Jessie James), only adds to his intrigue. He's succeeded on his own terms despite ticking off the powers that be on country radio, and has earned himself a healthy mainstream rock and alt-country following, thanks in part to critical support from Rolling Stone, who warmed to his serious songwriting skills and willingness to confront thorny issues, like prostitution and drug-addiction: check out the gritty poetry on "High Cost of Living" from 2008's That Lonesome Song. Fourth album The Guitar Song (2010) was a real revelation, though — 25 outstanding, rough-edged tracks that take us from back-porch to barroom and back again, no quarter asked, none given.$17.16 The Basics

JJ is the greatest modern day singer hands down. It doesn't matter if he is covering a song or writing a song his music reaches through genres and makes you feel as if you have lived the song.
Hands down, the best country singer today. When country has turned pop and is losing ground in a big way, JJ is an artist you can count on to stay true to the trade. Each and every song tells a story and does not contribute to murder on music row.
jamey johnson is awsome cant wait till next cd
