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
In 2013, the Nashville Scene’s 13th annual Country Music Critics’ Poll named it the year’s best album.

Johnson himself as best male vocalist, best songwriter, and artist of the year.)
About Blackberry Smoke:
Throughout their career, Blackberry Smoke—vocalist/lead guitarist Charlie Starr, guitarist/vocalist Paul
Jackson, bassist/vocalist Richard Turner, drummer Brit Turner, and keyboardist Brandon Still—has
embodied Georgia’s rich musical legacy, honoring the people, places, and sounds of their home state. As
the band celebrates their 20 th anniversary this year, their reverence for Georgia has only deepened.
On their latest album, You Hear Georgia, Blackberry Smoke is further celebrating these roots with 10
new songs that feel like Georgia, accented by the addition of Grammy-winning producer and fellow GA
native, Dave Cobb. In addition to Cobb & the acclaimed band, the album also features Jamey Johnson
and Warren Haynes as well as background vocals from The Black Bettys.
