Jamey Johnson has once again brought us well written songs with the best honk-tonkin’ musicians around along with his unique outlaw style that we all love. This CD has a white and a black album with 25 great songs, including some timeless covers such as “Set ‘Em Up Joe” and “For the Good Times.” I love them all, but my personal favorite is “Dog in the Yard” penned by Johnson and Buddy Cannon. The musicians smoke it up on this and Jim “Moose” Brown just throws down on the steel guitar while Curtis Wright adds some great honky-tonk piano. “Thankful for the Rain,” another good one, reminds of Merle Haggard style. “I Remember You” is a soul touching tune giving honor to the Lord. I recommend everyone has this in their collection of treasured music.
