Jamey Has Come Far! 12/09/2008

JAMEY JOHNSON makes his first appearance on CBS-TV’s Late Show with David Letterman tonight, performing the top-ten hit “In Color.” The show tapes in New York City, which is actually one of Jamey’s favorite cities. He tells us, quote, “New York City’s got a different kind of pace up there…I thought it was a really inspiring place to be [when I first went up there].” “In Color” is the first single from Jamey’s Grammy-nominated album That Lonesome Song.

It hasn’t been easy for Jamey, however.  After the loss of his record deal, Johnson divorced his wife and took on a reclusive lifestyle, residing in a friend’s basement while working on his songwriting. He wrote several songs for other artists.

Then, in 2006, George Strait reached Number One on the country music charts with “Give It Away”, a song which Johnson co-wrote, and the rest, as they say, is history!
