Pop Isn’t Country: Meet Jamey Johnson
Living for a Song: Tribute to Hank Cochran
If you’re looking for a way to start that Country section in your record collection. Start with Hank Williams, any of the original artists of the Outlaw Country movement and Jamey Johnson. He is the modern modern day music rebel..
We suggest Jamey’s current project Living For A Song: A Tribute To Hank Cochran. Hank Cochran (1935-2010) was one of the most prolific and celebrated singer/songwriters of the 20th century. Writing song that became hits for the likes of Patsy Cline, Hank Williams Jr., Elvis Costello, Norah Jones, Keith Whitley & Elvis Presley(to name a very few).
Jamey’s Living For A Song is an all star bonanza of an album. This is a collection of song interpretation at its highest levels. Johnson is joined by Willie Nelson, Vince Gill, Merle Haggard, Leon Russell, Bobby Bare, George Strait, Alison Krauss and more!
I won’t go track by track but I will recommend “Love Makes A Fool Of Us All” w/ Kris Kristofferson, “I’d Fight The World” w/ Bobby Bare and the awesome “I Fall To Pieces” w/ Merle Haggard.
So it must be time to pay a visit to the ole record shops!
