Unfortunately, this isn’t the announcement Jamey Johnson fans have been begging for concerning a new album. It’s been almost a decade, but fans will have to be a little more patient on that front. In the meantime, we’ve got other content to share with our Outsiders and it’ll give you a special kind of country nostalgia. Jamey Johnson joins the hoards of country stars using their music for a good cause. Most recently, Dolly Parton raised over $700k for Tennessee flood victims while also signing on to headline the first-ever “Kiss Breast Cancer Goodbye” benefit. Luke Combs also used his platform in recent days to remember victims of the Route 91 tragedy.
Jamey Johnson’s cause surrounded the Nikki Mitchell Foundation. At this annual Homecoming Concert for the foundation’s benefit, Johnson brought out Cody Jinks and Randy Houser to cover some classic Merle Haggard. Here’s what went down.
