Song of the week- "21 guns" Jamey Johnson



About Jamey Johnson:

Jamey Johnson, who has received 11 Grammy nominations, is “one of the greatest country

singers of our time,” according to The Washington Post. 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.


His album That Lonesome Song was certified platinum for more than 1 million in sales, and his

double album, The Guitar Song, debuted at No. 1 on the Billboard country album charts and

was certified gold. He also released the Grammy-nominated Living for a Song: A Tribute to Hank

Cochran, which featured performances with Willie Nelson, Merle Haggard, Alison Krauss,

Emmylou Harris, Ray Price, Elvis Costello, George Strait and Vince Gill.


He is also widely regarded as one of the greatest country songwriters of his generation. He is

one of only a few people in the history of country music to win two Song of the Year awards--

for “Give It Away” and “In Color”--from the Academy of Country Music and the Country Music

Association. His songs have been recorded by George Strait, Trace Adkins, Willie Nelson, James

Otto, Joe Nichols and others.


He is also an in-demand musical collaborator. He recorded “I Forgive It All” for the Tom Petty &

the Heartbreakers tribute album, Petty Country: A Country Music Celebration of Tom Petty,

which will be released June 21. He and Elle Langley recorded “Young Love (Strong Love)” for A

Tribute to the Judds that was released in 2023.


He was honored to be invited to turn two of Johnny Cash’s unfinished poems into songs. He

completed “Spirit Rider” for the album called Forever Words, and he and Cash’s son, John

Carter Cash, turned the late icon’s words into a song called “California Poem.”
