Jamey Johnson covers Willie Nelson @ Grand Ole Opry

Wednesday, February 18th, 2015
by: Beville Dunkerley

Jamey Johnson has long been a disciple — and friend — of Willie Nelson, so when the Alabama native took the stage of the Grand Ole Opry last week, it was no surprise that he covered one of the Texas legend’s tunes. Watch above as the singer-songwriter performs the sonically sober, but lyrically intoxicated, “I’d Have to Be Crazy,” which originally appeared on Nelson’s 1976 LP, The Sound in Your Mind.

Since touring together in 2011, Johnson and Nelson have been frequent guests on each other’s albums. The younger singer joined his mentor on 2012’s Heroes, lending his voice to both “Hero” and “Roll Me Up and Smoke Me When I Die” — the latter alongside Snoop Dogg and Kris Kristofferson. Nelson returned the favor for Johnson’s 2012 Livin’ For a Song: A Tribute to Hank Cochran LP, singing “Don’t You Ever Get Tired of Hurting Me” and “Everything But You” (which also features Vince Gill and Leon Russell). And the only duet on Nelson’s 2014 Band of Brothers album is one with Johnson, “The Git Go.”

So, it will also be no surprise if the Redheaded Stranger is a guest artist on Johnson’s upcoming album. Details are few and far between at this time, but the project will be the musician’s first full-length since his Cochran compilation and first on his own label, Big Gassed Records. So far, he’s released two very different sounding songs from the indie project: the acoustic “Alabama Pines” and whimsical “You Can.”

Support the fight against Pancreatic Cancer; Get your ticket to the Full Moon Full Life Concert tonight

Tuesday, May 20th, 2014


Can’t make it to tonight’s concert at the BackYard?  You can still buy a ticket, to support the cause, even if you can’t make it to Texas:

Jamey Johnson, Jessi Colter and Shooter Jennings will headline the first annual Full Moon Full Life concert series on Tuesday, May 20 in Austin, Texas at The Backyard Live Oak Amphitheatre. They will be joined by several of their Texas friends, Lukas Nelson, Cody Canada, Ray Benson, Paula Nelson, Waylon Payne and more.

The live auction begins at 7:00 p.m, with the concert immediately following. Tickets are priced at $35.00 and can be purchased at or Proceeds from the concert and auction will benefit the The Nikki Mitchell Foundation which raises funds and awareness to prevent, detect and cure Pancreatic Cancer.

The theme for this year’s Full Moon Full Life event in Austin will be “A Night Of Influence, A Celebration of Waylon Jennings and Hank Cochran.” Waylon, who died in February 2003, will be inducted into the Texas Songwriter’s Hall of Fame later this year, making this event an early celebration for the occasion. Hank Cochran, who died of Pancreatic Cancer in 2010, was inducted into the Country Music Hall of Fame this month.

The foundation’s namesake, Nikki Mitchell passed away in July 2013 of pancreatic cancer. She served as President and CEO of Waylon Jennings’ music for more than 23 years. During her tenure there, she made history of her own with the Bridge of Wings flight in 1998, where she circumnavigated the northern hemisphere as co-captain in a single engine aircraft. In December 2010, Nikki was diagnosed with pancreatic cancer. Taking the bull by the horns she consulted with renowned medical professionals around the country and her zeal for life throughout her 31-month battle never diminished.

Pancreatic Cancer is the 4th leading cause of cancer death in the United States and is expected to become the 2nd leading cause of cancer death by 2020. Research for the disease receives only 2% of the National Cancer Institute’s budget. Nikki’s last dream was to save others from the devastating disease of pancreatic cancer, leading to the formation of the foundation.
