Jamey Johnson has put together a great new Hank Cochran tribute LP, Living for a Song: A Tribute to Hank Cochran
, which includes Merle Haggard, Willie Nelson, George Strait, and Emmylou Harris.
“If I had to dream up somebody like Hank to influence songwriters, I couldn’t have done a better job,” Johnson said in a press release. "If he knew you needed help with something, he could help you. He was there. And that’s what I want to be for the people in my life, same as Hank. He influenced me, not only as an artist and songwriter, but also as a person.”
Some of the highlights include "She'll Be Back" with Elvis Costello and "I'd Fight the World" with Bobby Bare. And all of the cuts feature Johnson's much-loved Epiphone EJ-200CE.
