Country music singer-songwriter Jamey Johnson made his official debut in 2006 with the release of his album, The Dollar, which peaked at No. 20 on the Billboard Top Country Albums chart. Reaching No. 14 on the Billboard Hot Country Songs chart, his first single, "The Dollar," was a success. Following The Dollar, he released three more studio albums, all of which peaked in the top 10 of the Billboard Top Country Albums chart, with 2010's The Guitar Song peaking at No. 1 and climbing to No. 4 on the Billboard 200.

Born in Enterprise, Ala. in 1975, Jamey Johnson enjoyed country music from a young age. While he was in the United States Marine Corps Reserve, Johnson played country music in bars around Montgomery. He moved to Nashville, Tenn. in 2000, earning a songwriting contract soon after. During this time, he co-wrote Trace Adkins' hit song, "Honky Tonk Badonkadonk." After signing a recording contract with BNA Records, he released his debut album, The Dollar in 2006, but was dropped from the label when his second single, "Rebelicious," failed to chart. Not giving up on his career, Johnson continued songwriting, producing more hits for Trace Adkins and Joe Nichols. He signed with Mercury Nashville Records after releasing That Lonesome Song online, re-releasing the album with the label later that same year. The album was certified platinum by the Recording Industry Association of America. Founding his own record label, Big Gassed Records, following a dispute with Mercury Nashville, Johnson released a Christmas EP in 2014. He followed up with two new singles in 2015 and is currently working on a new album.
