Audio Mixer: T.W. Cargile. Recording information: Big Studios, Nashville, TN; Lionsound, Los Angeles, CA; Shrimp Boat Sound, Key West, FL; The Ryman Auditorium, Nashville, TN. Photographers: James Minchin III; Melinda J.P. Harlan. When was the last time anybody in country music released a double studio album? Following up his stellar 2008 recording, That Lonesome Song, songwriter Jamey Johnson returns with the ambitious, sprawling 25-track The Guitar Song.

The sound is rougher edged than contemporary country; it comes from the Waylon Jennings/Hank Jr./David Allan Coe era. It rocks, but it also rolls. Johnson's chameleon-like ability as a writer and singer also affords him the luxury to collaborate with many of Nashville's current writing crop as well as veterans, all without compromising his vision as a narrative songwriter. He allows tough topics to rise from the heart and speak directly with whatever emotions they carry coming to the fore. Check the title track (with a guest appearance by Bill Anderson); the broken love songs "Heartache," "Cover Your Eyes" and "Thankful for the Rain"; the brutally loneso...
