Finding My Way to Jamey Johnson
July 28th, 2009
By: Alison Bonaguro
I adore Jamey Johnson’s new song, “My Way to You,” so much that I’m seriously considering going to hear him do it in St. Louis. He’s playing Farm Aid there on Oct. 4 (along with Willie Nelson and John Mellencamp, who I also love for their hardcore, genuine approach to songwriting). And while I know it sounds absurd to go all that way to hear one song, Johnson’s voice is just kind of a magnet that way. This particular song is especially mesmerizing because, like his other tunes, this one takes you to places you normally don’t go (down the wrong road, living by the wrong code and living fast as hell). But it does so with some more haunting instrumentation. And what I love the most about seeing Johnson live is that I always get that feeling he’s singing just to me.
