Johnson has already received rave reviews for The Guitar Song:

The Wall Street Journal – “Jamey Johnson’s The Guitar Song is as ambitious in its intentions and successful in its execution as country music has seen in decades, able to hold its own with albums conceived as such by Waylon Jennings, Willie Nelson, Merle Haggard and Johnny Cash.”

The New York Times – “There’s dark country, and then there’s Jamey Johnson, who has a weathered voice and an even more weathered attitude. The Guitar Song, his new two-disc set, continues the improbable run that produced his 2008 masterpiece That Lonesome Song.”

The Boston Globe – “What is immediately evident is that this is a phenomenal collection of country music.”

The Philadelphia Inquirer – “Hardscrabble country baritone Johnson ups the ante in the heir-to-Merle Haggard sweepstakes.”

Fort Worth Star Telegram – “The Guitar Song ranks as one of 2010’s strongest releases, in any genre, and delivers a desperately needed shot in the arm to the too-often glib world of country music. This is what baring your soul sounds like.”
