Texas-based songwriter and performer, Buck Johnson picks out a driving rhythm on guitar, singing his gritty, yet passionate, heartfelt original songs. He pulls an old lonesome sound together with country, rock and blues, to create his own high-energy blend of Texas honky-tonk.
What People are Saying
"Johnson’s sound is old school without being ancient, modern without being pop, country without being too western...[The Morning After is] one of the best debut offerings of 2010. Johnson’s album is Texan to the core and will no doubt get a second look from the nominating committee of the Texas Music Awards.
--Lucky Boyd, MyTexasMusic
"...A great writer and a true honky tonk stylist, reminiscent of the west coast California country sounds of Merle Haggard, Buck Owens and Dwight Yoakam; with an honest style all his own and who's obviously been doing this a long time. The kind of artist I truly look forward to working with. --John Beland, Producer
"WOW--fabulous job!! There's not a song on [The Morning After] that won't be a hit in its own time. You can guarantee that all the originals will have their share of airtime on my show."
--Dixie McCorkell, host of "Country Legends In The Making" syndicated radio program
