The award nominations keep rolling in for [lastfm link_type="artist_info"]Jamey Johnson[/lastfm] and his album “The Guitar Song.” How many awards has he been nominated for? What are his chances to win any of the awards?
I’ve always believe you either love Jamey’s music, or ya don’t. If your on the “I don’t like it” list then personally I think your crazy and somewhat alone. ”The Guitar Song” which is the newest album from Jamey features 25 songs on 2 different CDs and was released late in 2010.
Since the album’s release it has been ranked No.5 on Rolling Stone’s Best Albums of 2010 and now is up for 2 Grammy Nominations. Today when announcements were made for the Academy of Country Music awards the awards kept rolling in with a nomination for Album Of The Year! The awards didn’t stop there for Jamey though, he also received a nomination in the category of Vocal Event of the Year With his buddy [lastfm link_type="artist_info"]Cold Ford[/lastfm] for “Cold Beer.”
“The Guitar Song” is a little over 105 minutes of fresh music, unlike anything else out there right now, and I think it would say huge things if Jamey and Colt took home an ACM considering there radio airplay is little to none in most towns. So far there has only been one song released off the 2 disc album, “The Guitar Song” called “Playing The Part.” I was lucky enough to play the song on The BIG SEXY Show, but check out this cool live video of the guys playing the song.
This song is off Jamey’s album prior to “The Guitar Song” still rings in as one of my favorite songs of all time. Check out “Mowing Down The Roses!”
Do you think Jamey has a chance at winning? How many do you think he will take home?
