CINCINNATI (WKRC) — Willie Nelson and Jamey Johnson are added to an already impressive lineup for the new Buckle Up Music Festival this summer in Cincinnati.

Those acts join Alabama, The Band Perry, The Railers, Eli Young Band, J.T. Hodges, The Lone Bellow and Natalie Stovall and the Drive. Organizers say more acts will be announced in the coming weeks.

The Buckle Up Festival will debut in July of 2014 at Sawyer Point and Yeatman’s Cove. As many as 80 acts will perform over the three days on six stages.

In a release, festival founder Bill Denabedian says “Cincinnati has quickly proven itself as a perfect market for an outdoor summer music festival. As with Bunbury Music Festival, the goal with Buckle Up is to feature an eclectic mix of music combined with an unforgettable experience.”

One day tickets are currently $55. It’s $130 for all three days. Three day VIP tickets are available for $325. Organizers say ticket prices will go up after Memorial Day and again shortly before the festival.

If you live outside Texas, like me, but want to support the fundraising efforts, you can purchase tickets through Floore’s website.  Then, e-mail mark@liveatfloores.com and let them know you bought tickets you won’t be using.  Let’s join the Ben Dorsey Team.

Jamey Johnson will headline the Second Annual Ben Dorsey Day Concert on February 4th, at John T. Floore Country Store in Helotes, Texas.  There seems to be a group of friends in the music business who care about Ben and care for him, and it’s moving to witness that kind of friendship and community, at it’s finest.   Along with Jamey Johnson, Josh Abbott, Even Felker of The Turnpike Troubadours & more will perform.    All the artists and crew on this show will be donating their time and talent for free! It promises to be a great show to honor a long time member in the crew.”

I took this picture of Paula Nelson and Ben in Austin, on New Year’s Eve. When I showed Paula the picture, she told me Ben had his hand on her ass when I snapped this photo. Ha. The more things change, the more they stay the same.

Willie Nelson’s 4th of July Picnic 2013, a grand finale

Saturday, July 13th, 2013

billybob21

It’s always exciting at the end of a Willie Nelson & Family show when other artists or family members come on stage to sing with the band, and it’s especially fun at the Picnic, when the artists who played during the day sing gospel tunes with Willie, and whatever other songs Willie leads them in. . Some folks had to leave for other shows or other reason, but the stage was full.

Ever wonder what it feels like to have Willie Nelson put a bandanna on your head at his 4th of July Picnic?

Saturday, July 6th, 2013

billybob34

Jamey Johnson’s daughter joined her dad on stage for a few songs during his set in Fort Worth at Willie Nelson’s 4th of July Picnic, then she came out to join everyone onstage for the gospel set and finale.

She watched Willie taking bandannas from his amp, putting them on, then tossing them to the fans. At one point, when he tossed a bandanna, she ran and grabbed a bandanna and ran up to the edge of the stage where Willie was, and handed him the bandanna to put on. Something I’ve never seen, and it was so sweet. Then, after that one got tossed, Willie grabbed one and put it on her head, and you can see how much she enjoyed it.

2013

The hits just keep on coming!  Jamey Johnson has been added to the already stellar lineup for Willie Nelson’s 2013 Fourth of July Picnic, at Billy Bob’s Texas, in Forth Worth.  What a line-up!  Willie Nelson and Family, Jamey Johnson, Leon Russell, Kris Kristofferson, David Allan Coe, Ray Wilie Hubbard, Ray Price, Ryan bingham, Justin Moore, Lukas Nelson, Paula Nelson, Amy Nelson!  And more to come.

The picnic has been moved out to the ‘back 40 at famous Billy Bob’s Texas, where the picnic was for several years, before it became an an inside/outside affair for the past couple years, with two stages, one inside and one out.   This one will accommodate so many more fans, for this the 40th of Willie Nelson’s picnics.  The semi-airconditioning was nice, but Billy Bob’s will be open, and you can go in there for a cold drink and some a/c. 

If you’ve always wanted to go to your first Willie Nelson & Family Picnic, or if you haven’t been in a while — this is your chance to hear some great music, and spend the Fourth of July with Willie Nelson and his family and friends and other fans.

Tickets are on sale Monday!

Jamey Johnson: ‘Living For a Song: A Tribute to Hank Cochran

Saturday, December 1st, 2012

 

www.washingtonpost.com
by: Timothy Bracey

On his tribute to the late, legendary Nashville songwriter Hank Cochran, emerging star Jamey Johnson has recruited a veritable Murderers’ Row of country music greats, including Willie Nelson, Merle Haggard and Emmylou Harris. This is heavy company for anyone to hang with, but the 37-year-old Johnson more than holds his own while duetting with these titans of modern music. “Living For A Song” functions both as a moving elegy and a great introduction to the music of his mentor, with whom he had become close before Cochran’s death in 2010.

Opening track “Make The World Go Away” is a faithful but stunning reading of a timeless classic, with Johnson’s deep and winning tenor harmonizing beautifully with Allison Krauss on the desperate and yearning chorus. Highlights abound — from the Leon Russell-aided “A Way To Survive,” to the surprisingly great back and forth between Johnson and Elvis Costello on “She’ll Be Back,” which easily outdistances anything from Costello’s previous Brit-goes-country exertions.

This is clearly one of the best releases of the year and a fitting tribute to one of the crucial and under-appreciated figures in 20th century American music. “Living For A Song” establishes Jamey Johnson as both a custodian of country music’s finest traditions and a worthwhile creative confederate going forward. It can only be a matter of time before this gifted performer has consecrated a legacy of greatness all his own.
