Jamey with his Elitist Les Paul Studio at the Wildhorse
Jamey Johnson rocked two big shows in Nashville this past
weekend, first headlining at the Wildhorse Saloon and at a combo show with
his “Trailer Park” comrades Jerred Niemann and Randy Houser at
12th and Porter.
"Ole Maple" shares the spotlight
The Saturday night show at Nashville’s famous Wildhorse
Saloon was packed as Jamey ran through a meaty set that even included a cover
of George Jones’s classic “He Stopped Loving Her Today”. Aside
from tunes from Jamey’s BNA release “The Dollar”, he also
stirred the crowd with Trace Adkins’ “Honkytonk Badonkadonk”,
of which Jamey is a co-writer. Jamey’s venerable
EJ200CE “Ole Maple” led the band, sporting some nice new Grover
Imperial tuners, courtesy of a visit to Dr. Epiphone. In both shows Jamey
played an Elitist Les Paul
Studio for some of the harder rocking songs like “Redneck Side of
Jamey's AJ-200CE accidentally
(???) being demolished!
Things got a little too rowdy at the12th and Porter show
when Jamey’s AJ200CE got “accidentally” demolished by fellow
headliner Randy Houser. Jamey pleaded “the fifth” when asked who
kicked the big holes in the wall of the dressing room. After the excitement
and alcohol wore off, Jamey expressed the need for the number of a good sheetrock
repairman or perhaps as he put it…"a drywall endorsement".
Anybody have a number for
a good sheetrock repairman?
When asked to comment, management of the club expressed
concerns over booking such Epiphone artists despite record bar sales, stating:
“Next time they might just burn the place down!”
