Jamey Johnson 

When: Sun., April 28, 8 p.m. 2013
Price: $29.50 ADV, $32 DOS
An old school country guy who’s been kicking around for about a decade, Jamey Johnson raised eyebrows with 2008’s That Lonesome Song, an introspective album that came off as country music’s answer to Springsteen’s stark Nebraska. The album even commences with a skit in which a jailor sets Johnson free and tells him to stay out of trouble. Johnson originally self-released the disc in 2007 before Mercury Nashville took notice and then reissued it and with the push of a major label it would eventually go platinum. The songs on his 2010 follow-up, The Guitar Song, weren’t as deeply moving but they did confirm That Lonesome Song wasn’t just a fluke. On last year’s Living for a Song, Johnson pays tribute to the late country singer and songwriter Hank Cochran, and he gets a little help from friends such as Alison Krauss, Merle Haggard and Vince Gill in the process.
