Jamey Johnson grew up in a strict religious household, so it came as a surprise to his parents when he started playing music at an early age. By junior high, Johnson was adept at playing a variety of instruments and had music theory down pat. After an eight-year stint in the U.S. Marine Reserves, Johnson moved to Nashville to concentrate on music. Although he had a variety of day jobs, Johnson played music at night and eventually made contact with a circle of friends who got him "regular" work singing on their demos. Eventually Johnson signed to BNA and in early 2006 released his debut, The Book. With a hit single ("The Dollar") under his belt, Johnson hit the road -- and partied hard. Things started to unravel, first when his wife divorced him and then further when his record label dropped him. Lost and in shock, Johnson cut himself off from friends and family and became a recluse, writing smash hits for George Strait ("Give It Away") and Trace Adkins ("Honky Tonk Badonkadonk") to pass the time. In 2008, Johnson returned to the spotlight with the release of his sophomore effort, That Lonesome Song, a battered collection of songs dealing with loss, growing pains and regret.

Pass The Jar
Zac Brown Band
Runtime: 1 hr 56 min"Not only is this a stellar recording of a nearly flawless performance, but it's also peppered with star-studded cameos and a few cover songs of the household-favorite variety. More importantly, it reveals Zac Brown and his band in their most comfortable and confident element — the live setting. Nothing against Brown's recorded material, but after hearing this October 30, 2009 concert from Atlanta, there's really no argument that Brown and band prefer the stage to the studio. The fawning ""Whatever It Is"" opens the set with rootsy instruments twanging and grinding under Brown's good ol' boy drawl, but you can almost hear the high-fives in the crowd following an excellent cover of the Band's ""The Night They Drove Old Dixie Down."" They do similar justice to a barn-burning rendition of ""The Devil Went Down To Georgia."" Kid Rock lends his graveled growl on a Zippo-hoisting version of Marshall Tucker Band's ""Can't You See"" and it's great to hear Shawn Mullins pipe in on the Jimmy Buffett-esque ""Toes,"" though it's Little Big Town's lush harmonic panorama on the heartwarming ""Colder Weather"" that shines brightest here."
