Johnson hails from Alabama and after a short stint at Jacksonville State University, the country music rebel enlisted with the US Marine Corps and stayed for eight years before moving to Nashville in 2000 to pursue his career. His songwriting talents were quickly noticed, and he penned the hit single "Honkytonk Badonkadonk" for Trace Adkins in 2005. It was soon after this that he signed a deal with BNA records to cut an album. The following year he released The Dollar, whose title track peaked at #14 on Billboard's Hot Country Songs chart. With only lukewarm sales, Johnson was soon dropped from BNA and he became somewhat reclusive. However, Johnson wouldn't be out of the scene for too long; he returned to his songwriting roots and penned George Strait's #1 country hit "Give it Away" and Joe Nichols' hit "Another Side of You." Without a record deal, Johnson self-recorded and produced 2008's That Lonesome Song, which caught the attention of label execs at Mercury Nashville. He was soon signed to the record label and released the hit single "In Color" the following year. In 2009, "In Color," was awarded with the Song of the Year award by the Academy of Country Music and was also nominated for two Grammy Awards. With critical acclaim and a gold-certified album, Johnson's return was one of redemption. In 2010, Johnson released the gold certified The Guitar Song, which featured the hit track, "Heartache." In support of the album, Jamey Johnson tour dates were scheduled at various locations throughout the US.
