Jamey Johnson stands as the lone country artist celebrating the career of ZZ Top on the upcoming album, 'A Tribute From Friends,' due out October 8. Covering the band's 1973 classic 'La Grange,' the country rebel joins an all-star roster, including rockers Grace Potter & The Nocturnals, Daughtry and Nickelback.When asked about the project, founding ZZ Top members Billy Gibbons, Dusty Hill and Frank Beard responded, "When we were told there was going to be a ZZ Top tribute album a while ago and logically asked, 'Who are we paying tribute to?' Then we found out that a bunch of great artists were paying tribute to us and we were in disbelief. For the past 40 or so years, all we've done is get out there and crank it and try to have a good time while doing so. To a great extent, we've succeeded since we're still having a good time so that would be reward enough for the same three guys playing the same three chords. Now comes 'A Tribute From Friends,' and we're so delighted that our music resonates with these great musicians whom we so admire."ZZ Top has sold more than 50 millions albums worldwide, 25 million stateside. Best known for their classics 'Gimme All Your Lovin',' 'Legs' and 'Sharp Dressed Man,' the band scored eight Top 40 singles, including six mainstream rock No. 1 hits. ZZ Top was inducted into the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame in 2004.'A Tribute From Friends' Track List:1. 'Sharp Dressed Man' - The M.O.B. (Mick Fleetwood, Steven Tyler, Jonny Lang & John McVie)2.

Jamey Johnson Is One Of The Talents To Come Along In Honky Tonk Country Music Since The Great Billy Joe Shaver. With His True Country Songsmith And Modern Day Ways He Will Be On The Great List Before All Is Said And Done. He Performed Sept.24th.2011 @ The John Michael Montgomery Music Fest In Winchester Ky. And Stole The Show. Awesome Set. Need Him To Come Back Each Year..... Or @ Least Come To The Lexington Ky. Area.
THE SHOW IN RAINBOW CITY AL WAS THE BEST I KNOW THE TRIBUTR TO ZZTOP WILL BE TOO
This is great!!! I hope Jamey adds songs like this on his next album. I love to hear Jamey sing anything!
I am so excited to hear this! I can only imagine how great this will be. I'd be willing to say that he will sound better than ZZ top. What a perfect match!
