Country star to play The Joint inside Hard Rock Hotel & Casino Tulsa
TULSA, Okla. — Country star Jamey Johnson is hitting the road this spring and making a June 16 stop at The Joint inside Hard Rock Hotel & Casino Tulsa.
Tickets start at $30 and go on sale April 20.
Johnson is an 11-time Grammy-nominated singer-songwriter, who has been called “one of the greatest country singers of our time” by The Washington Post.
He is one of only a few people in the history of country music to win two Song of the Year Awards from both the CMA and ACMs. Johnson won awards in 2007 for “Give It Away” and in 2009 for “In Color.”
In 2012, the Alabama native released his fifth studio album, a tribute project to late songwriter Hank Cochran. The Grammy-nominated “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. The album peaked at No. 3 on the country charts.
In 2013, the Nashville Scene’s 13th annual Country Music Critics’ Poll named “Living for a Song” the year’s best album. Two years earlier, the same poll named Johnson’s “The Guitar Song” as the year's best album, and Johnson himself as best male vocalist, best songwriter and artist of the year.
Johnson broke through with his 2008 release, “That Lonesome Song,” which was certified platinum for 1 million in sales. His 2010 follow-up, the ambitious double album “The Guitar Song,” received a gold certification and became his first No. 1 album.
He has received tremendous praise from The New York Times, Rolling Stone, The Wall Street Journal and other publications, many of which have hailed his albums as masterpieces.
Since January, Johnson has taken part in the The Last Waltz 40 Tour, which is a celebration of The Band’s epic concert film’s 40th anniversary. Johnson is playing alongside numerous talented musicians, including Warren Haynes, Dr. John and Don Was. The tour concludes in late April, when Johnson resumes his solo tour.
