Jamey Johnson: What A View Tour


Jamey Johnson – who is widely regarded as one of the best country songwriters of his generation and is known for songs such as “In Color,” “Give It Away,” “High Cost of Living,” “That’s Why I Write Songs” and “Can’t Cash My Checks” – will bring his What A View Tour to Albany Civic Center on Thursday, October 10.

While Johnson has spent the better part of more than two decades on the road, he took a break from touring much of last year to focus on songwriting. The name of the tour came from one of the songs written during this burst of creativity.

“It is the song that brought me back into writing songs,” he says. “It is the one that kicked off the desire to make new music. You can expect to hear more new music in our shows from now on.”

Johnson is also known for the breadth and depth of his ever-changing set lists, which include his hits, album cuts and covers of country standards, as well as new songs, so fans never know what they can expect.

“It will be fun,” he says. “We will do a lot of the old stuff and a lot of the new stuff.”

Speaking of new music, on May 24, the country music star and U.S. Marine Corps veteran released his much-anticipated new song called “21 Guns,” which was inspired by attending the funerals of fellow Marines who paid the ultimate price in service to their country.

Reserved seating tickets start at $49 and go on sale to the public this Friday, May 31 at 10 a.m. online at Ticketmaster and the Georgia’s Own Credit Union Box Office located at the front entrance of the Albany Civic Center.

Opening support will be announced at a later date.
