Eleven-time Grammy-nominated singer-songwriter Jamey Johnson is “one of the greatest country singers of our time,” according to the Washington Post. He is one of only a few people in the history of country music to win two Song of the Year Awards from both the CMA and ACMs.

His 2008 album, That Lonesome Song, was certified platinum for 1 million in sales, and his 2010 ambitious double album, The Guitar Song, received a gold certification.

In addition, he won two Song of the Year Trophies, for “Give It Away” and “In Color,” both from the Academy of Country Music and the Country Music Association. He has received tremendous praise from The New York Times, Rolling Stone,
The Wall Street Journal and other publications, many of which have
hailed his albums as masterpieces.

In 2012, the Alabama native released his fifth studio album, a tribute project to late songwriter Hank Cochran. The Grammy-nominated Living for a Song: A Tribute to Hank Cochran paired him with Willie Nelson, Alison Krauss, Emmylou Harris, Ray Price, Elvis Costello, George Strait, Vince Gill and Merle Haggard.

In 2013, the Nashville Scene’s 13th annual Country Music Critics’ Poll named it the year’s best album. (Two years earlier, the same poll named Johnson’s The Guitar Song as the year's best album, and Johnson himself as best male vocalist, best songwriter and artist of the year.)

Sometimes when you're chasin' dreams it's the chasin' that's important. Regardless of the outcome, gettin out of your comfort zone and goin for it is what it's all about.

Not so many years ago I loaded up the Ford Ranger and made my way out of my home town of Decatur, TN headed for Nashville. In the years that followed I have been blessed to have the opportunity to write with some of the most talented people in the world and play with the most talented musicians. I've also been blessed with cuts on records like Billy Currington's "A Little Bit Of Everything" as well as Kevin Fowler, Corey Morrow, Rodney Carrington, and Cody Johnson albums. Recently a song I wrote with my friends The Wild Feathers titled "Hennessee" was featured on the hit TV show "Nashville".

Since the Fall of 2012 I've been a member of one of the best bands on the road backing my good friend Mr. Jamey Johnson. With Jamey I've had the opportunity to share the stage with some of my musical heros like Willie Nelson, Emmylou Harris and Allison Krause just to name a few. I released "Hennessee Like Tennessee" in the Spring of 2011 and had great success with the single "Waylon Jennings Song". The followup to Hen Like Ten, "Revival" was released in 2012 and contains the single "Red Dress" among others.

One thing I know for sure, God has a plan for all of us and the odds are those plans are not exactly the plans we've made for ourselves. Just let him drive and enjoy the ride. He has blessed me with a beautiful wife and handsome son who support me 100 percent and the opportunity to play guitar and tell stories for a living. I couldn't ask for more.
