Jamey Johnson coming to del Lago

jamey-johnsonDel Lago Resort & Casino’s The Vine is hosting eleven-time Grammy-nominated singer-songwriter Jamey Johnson.

“The Washington Post” calls Johnson “one of the greatest country singers of our time.” He is one of very few people in the history of country music to win two Song of the Year Awards from both the Country Music Association Awards and Academy of Country Music Awards. Those awards were for “Give It Away” and “In Color.”

In 2009 he was nominated as New Arts of the Year at the Country Music Association Awards, and in 2010 he was nominated as Top New Solo Vocalist at the Academy of Country Music Awards.

One of the Alabama native’s studio albums was a tribute project to the late songwriter Hank Cochran. “Living for a Song: A Tribute to Hank Cochran” earned him a Grammy nomination and paired him with Willie Nelson, Alison Krauss, Elvis Costello, George Strait, Vince Gill and more.

Johnson founded his own label, Big Gassed Records, a few years ago. His first release under Big Gassed Records was a holiday-themed EP, “The Christmas Song.”

Johnson takes the stage at 8 p.m. on Oct. 17. dellagoresort.com/events
