Country singer-songwriter Jamey Johnson to perform at Amp on July 10
The St. Augustine Amphitheater has announced that singer-songwriter Jamey Johnson and special guest Whiskey Myers will take the stage at The Amp on Saturday July 10 for a concert at full capacity.
Grammy-nominated singer-songwriter Johnson is “one of the greatest country singers of our time,” according to the Washington Post. He is one of the few people in the history of country music to win two Song of the Year awards from the Country Music Association and the Academy of Country Music.
Her 2008 album, “That Lonesome Song” was certified platinum for 1 million sales, and her ambitious 2010 double album “The Guitar Song” received a gold certification.
In addition, he won two song of the year trophies, for “Give It Away” and “In Color”, both awarded by the Academy of Country Music and the Country Music Association. He has received high praise from the New York Times, The Rolling Stone, The Wall Street Journal and other publications, many of which have hailed his albums as masterpieces.
In 2012, the Alabama native released his fifth studio album, a tribute project to the late songwriter Hank Cochran. The Grammy nominee “Living for a Song: A Tribute to Hank Cochran” paired him with Willie Nelson, Alison Krauss, Emmylou Harris, Ray Price, Elvis Costello, George Strait, Vince Gill and Merle Haggard.
In 2013, the 13th Annual Nashville Country Music Critics Poll named it Best Album of the Year.
The Whiskey Myers genre group have performed over 2,500 concerts since their emergence in 2007 and sold 95% of their headlining shows in the last year of touring in front of growing crowds. The group’s self-produced fifth studio album, “Whiskey Meyers,” now available on Wiggy Thump Records, debuted to top the Country and Americana / Folk sales charts, at No. 2 on the Rock charts and No. 6 on the all-kind Billboard 200 graphic. The eponymous project follows on from the previous album, “Mud”, which reached No. 1 on the iTunes Country Chart with the single “Stone” in the Top 10 All Genres.
