Acclaimed singer-songwriter Jamey Johnson plows up the roots of country music, unraveling timeless melodies, ruthless wit, and bone-chilling narratives in his riveting live concert. A true preservationist of classic western music with a blood type of Hank Williams, Jamey’s unflinching songs about sour times have earned him multiple Grammy nominations, the CMA Song of the Year award for “In Color,” and countless 10-gallon-hat tips from his peers. Armed with an evocative baritone, Jamey stirs the ghosts of country music past with his trove of odes to broken hearts, empty pockets, and saloon etiquette, including tracks from his ambitious double album The Guitar Song and his tribute record to country legend Hank Cochran.<p>
[Trace Adkins](http://www.traceadkins.com/) invites his fans for a peek inside his country-fried mind. His 16-year career has careened through hits such as “Honky Tonk Badonkadonk” and “Ladies Love Country Boys,” leaving him with four Grammy nominations, five ACM and CMT awards each, and a spare cowboy hat tucked under his belt. Belted out in his unmistakable bass-clef twang, Adkins's songs speak to all aspects of working-class life, from rough and rowdy times on a pickup truck to heartfelt ballads sung to a pickup truck. Between hits such as "Gone Fishin'" and "Ladies Love Country Boys," the troubadour regales his fans with the stories behind the songs, tales from the road, and yarns from his youth.
