Jamey Johnson Releasing Vinyl LP, Appearing on Tonight Show

Jamey Johnson will release a vinyl LP version of his Mercury album, That Lonesome Song on Jan. 27 and has scheduled a Feb. 5 appearance on The Tonight Show With Jay Leno. Johnson has received three nominations at the Grammy Awards show taking place Feb. 8 in Los Angeles. That Lonesome Song is up for best country album, and one of the tracks, “In Color,” is nominated for best male country vocal performance and best country song. Johnson co-wrote the song with Lee Thomas Miller and James Otto. Johnson says, “The critical acclaim for the album and the Grammy nominations are so cool, but what has been the most overwhelming thing for me so far is when we’re playing live and the crowd sings every word of ’In Color’ back to us. As a songwriter, I can’t even explain what that feels like.” In addition to his Tonight Show appearance, Johnson will be featured on the new CMT Insider episode debuting Saturday (Jan. 17) at 1:30 p.m. ET/PT.
