Jamey Johnson will pay tribute to the late Hank Cochran with his new album, Livin' for a Song: A Tribute to Hank Cochran.
The new tribute, produced by Buddy Cannon and Dale Dodson, pairs Johnson with a host of other country greats, including Willie Nelson, Merle Haggard, Alison Krauss, Vince Gill, Leon Russell, Emmylou Harris, Kris Kristofferson, Lee Ann Womack and more.
"If I had to dream up somebody like Hank to influence songwriters, I couldn't have done a better job," says Jamey. "That's what he was -- not just for me, but for Willie and for a lot of people -- just a helpful friend. 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."
Livin' for a Song: A Tribute to Hank Cochran is due out October 16.
