All Jamey Johnson ever wanted to do was "ride around and sing country music."
And boy, has he.
Winning awards for 2005's "Honky Tonk Badonkadonk," which he co-wrote for Trace Adkins, Johnson went on to receive an Academy of Country Music Song of the Year award for co-writing the George Strait hit "Give It Away," and a Country Music Association award followed later that year.
His album, "That Lonesome Song" came out in the summer of 2008 and was a critical darling in "Rolling Stone," "The New York Times," "Esquire" and "The Los Angeles Times." The release led to an invitation from Willie Nelson to play Farm Aid and appearances on Letterman and Leno.
Johnson again won Song of the Year awards from the CMA and ACM for his album's breakout hit, "In Color," and went on to tour with Hank Williams, Jr., while racking up five Grammy nominations, and he now has been nominated for the prestigious award 11 times total.
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.
