Jamey Johnson | The Ritz | Clubs & Concerts | Indy Week
This is a past event.
When: Sat., June 27, 8 p.m. 2015
Price: $27.50


After self-releasing his critically lauded album That Lonesome Song in 2007, Jamey Johnson rode the fast-track to country music outlaw status, leading a modern revival of Waylon Jennings' spirited shake-up before it was co-opted by Music Row. (Brantley Gilbert, don't you think this outlaw bit's done got out of hand?) That success led Johnson to a platinum-selling major-label re-release, a few blips on mainstream country radio and a whole lot of creative freedom to explore modern music marketing no-no's, including a double-disc release and a posthumous tribute to his favorite songwriter, Hank Cochran. Eight years later, Johnson is embracing that independent spirit again with the launch of his own Big Gassed Records. He writes, records and releases songs as they come to him without much thought to the full-album release cycle. New singles "Alabama Pines" and "You Can" will likely be included in his Raleigh set, rumbling out in his signature baritone drawl. 8 p.m., $27.50, 2820 Industrial Drive, Raleigh, 919-424-1400, www.ritzraleigh.com. —Karlie Justus Marlowe
