Jamey Johnson

Respected in the industry but hardly a household name, maverick Jamey Johnson is best known for his CMA-winning hit “In Color.” But he’s released two classic albums filled with self-penned real country songs, including 2010’s knockout double-disc “The Guitar Song.” In concert, the hirsute singer — who looks more like a roadie than a star — is laconic and eclectic, throwing in covers of Bob Seger, Metallica, the Allman Brothers, George Jones and Hank Cochran, the late songwriting great whom Johnson saluted with a 2012 tribute album.
