Jamey Johnson is hitting the road once again, but this time he’s co-headlining with one of the best southern rock bands in the game right now, Blackberry Smoke.
The tour kicks off August 12th in Lincoln, Nebraska at Lincoln On The Streets, and will be making other stops at major cities like Little Rock, Charlotte, Charleston, Pittsburgh, Franklin, Tennessee, and more.
Johnson weighed in on what we can expect on the tour:
“I don’t know what I’m going to do until I am standing there doing it. That is a freedom I have enjoyed ever since I began doing this, the ability to try something new. You’ll see me do a lot of my songs, including my old stuff.
If I have a new song that I want to share, you will hear that. When I’m not doing my songs, I’ll be doing everybody else’s that I like, from every format.
If I find a jazz song that I like, we’ll drop it in there. If I find a rock song that I like, we’ll do that. My taste is vintage, traditional, and that is not to say that everything I do is old.
There are a lot of new writers these days that are putting out great music that I find in the same vein as the old stuff I like and we may try some of that out.”
Ella Langley and Megan Maroney will be openers for the tour as well.
I’ll admit that I’ve been dying for some new Jamey Johnson music, considering he hasn’t put out an album in a decade, but damn it’s good to still see the hitmaker perform.
