That Lonesome Song's Gold Album Celebration
Mercury recording artist Jamey Johnson has always respected the heritage of country music. That fact has never been more evident to the Nashville music community than last night on the rooftop terrace at BMI. Mercury Records and BMI hosted Johnson’s gold album celebration for the critically acclaimed That Lonesome Song. Johnson’s guests included legendary songwriters Hank Cochran, Cowboy Jack Clement, Bob McDill, Dickey Lee, Allen Reynolds, Buddy Cannon and Bill Anderson.
His guests also included artists Little Big Town, Holly Williams, Heidi Newfield, Keith Anderson, The Oak Ridge Boys and the group Alabama’s Teddy Gentry as well as Tennessee Titans quarterback Kerry Collins.
Universal Music Group Chairman & CEO Luke Lewis presented gold plaques to Johnson and The Kent Hardly Playboys, who produced and played on the Grammy nominated album.
