I haven’t done much on Jamey Johnson – and I really like him. So, I’d say it’s about time I get something up here. Jamey is nominated for three Grammy awards this year. They are Best Male Country Vocal Performance for “In Color,” Best Country Song, also for “In Color, and Best Country Album, “That Lonesome Song.”
I know we’re all familiar with the song “In Color,” but if you haven’t had the pleasure of hearing any of Jamey’s other songs, you’ll want to visit his MySpace (this one is actually a fan site) page and hear some of the music he has on there. Of course, Jamey has some music on his MySpace page, too. and you can go there by clicking here.
Jamey has several upcoming shows on his MySpace page, which include Jan.22, at Woody’s in Evansvile, Ind.; Jan.23, at Joe’s in Chicago, Ill.; Jan. 24, at The Intersection in Grand Rapids, Mich.; Jan. 29, Dirty Boot Saloon, Lisbon, Ohio; Jan.30, Screamin’ Willies, Columbus, Ohio; Jan. 31, Cattle Annie’s, Lynchyburg, Va.; Feb. 6, The Beach Wagon,Myrtle Beach, S.C.; Feb. 7,Hollywood Hollow, Lawrenceville,N.C.; Feb.13,The Blue Note, Columbia, Mo.; and Feb.14, Longhorns Saloon, Manhattan, Kansas.
He sure is a busy man. And look, another Valentine’s Day show. I wonder if I’ll get any of those close to me. A country music show on Valentines Day would be a lot better than just a dinner out. So, I’ll see what I can find in this area between now and Feb. 14.
Here’s one of Jamey’s songs you may not have heard yet. It’s “They Call Me Country,” and it’s one of my favorite JJ songs.
Gotta run – more later! Write when you can – it’s always a real treat to hear from you guys.
