For over a year now I’ve been trying to figure out a way to see Jamey Johnson play before he moves out of the smaller venues and into the realm of super star and super speedway shows that I will never go to see. Who knows? Maybe his brand of old time twang isn’t what the masses want but it was sure one satisfying experience for my husband and me when we finally got to see Jamey play last night at the Norva. My God what a show.
Most of us have been to shows where the singer comes on stage and performs poorly. I always hold a bit of my expectation in reserve because I’m afraid my ticket money would have been better spent on an Itunes download and a bottle of wine but last night? Magic. Jamey Johnson’s voice is like a shot of ground glass chased with honey. He put on a show that quickly made it my top one favorite concert ever.
