The Dollar by Jamey Johnson

Alabama native Jamey has been a Marine and an insurance adjuster, but he has one of those rare voices that means he was destined to sing country music. It”s a hard-edged, lived-in, distinctly Southern instrument that conjures up images of honky-tonks and pickup trucks no matter what it”s singing about, and keeps tunes like his Top 30 hit “The Dollar” from drowning in sentimentality. With a few exceptions, the songs on Jamey”s debut aren”t quite as distinctive as that marvelous voice, but there's enough solid stuff here to suggest he”s an up-and-comer worth watching.
