Jamey on Grammys and Letterman
On December 3, 2008, Jamey Johnson was standing backstage getting ready to perform in Houston, TX when his friend and labelmate Lee Ann Womack introduced him to the crowd as a Grammy nominee. Until that moment, Johnson didn’t know he had received 3 Grammy nominations - one in the Best Country Song category as a co-writer on his single “In Color,” one in the Best Male Country Vocal Performance category and one in the prestigious Best Country Album category for his Mercury debut That Lonesome Song. Johnson was rendered speechless by the news.
It seems that multiple outlets agree with The Recording Academy on the impact of Johnson’s album by placing That Lonesome Song on their Best Albums of 2008 lists. The record appears on year-end lists by Rolling Stone, PASTE, The New York Times, Amazon.com, AOL and is the #1 Country Album on iTunes and #7 in all genres of music.
