Jamey Johnson, "Living For A Song: A Tribute To Hank Cochran" (Mercury)
Hank Cochran was one of country music's greatest songwriters. He was also an opportunist, something Jamey Johnson discovered when he met him at a mutual friend's office several years ago.
Jamey Johnson sang at Hank Cochran's bedside in the hours before his death. Now he's showing his love for the legendary songwriter again.
Jamey Johnson is the young, wild-haired heir to country music's outlaw throne. The Blind Boys of Alabama are the enduring heralds of God's word through gospel music.
"This place was full of Nashville legends all week long and they were having fun," Johnson said. "They'd come in and listen to us cut a couple songs. They just wanted to hang out and be a witness to it. And I think it had to be doing the same thing for them that it was doing to us. It was soul-stirring music at its finest."
"Alabama is like anywhere else down there _ it's no different from Mississippi and parts of Georgia and Florida _ it's not just rooted in country music," Johnson said.
