A new photography book follows country artist Jamey Johnson’s career from 2008 to 2010 and features over 450 images. This Ride…In Color, And In Pictures, by photographer Melinda J.P. Harlan, is set to release as a 2,500 copy, limited edition run on Sept. 25.
Harlan compliments the photographs with stories, quotes and observations from some of Johnson’s closest friends and mentors. George Jones, Bill Anderson, Jim “Moose” Brown, Rob Hatch, T.W. Cargile, Sharon Corbitt-House, Keith Bilbrey and Bill Cody are among those who share their experiences throughout the book. These insights give fans a rare peek into the life of Johnson. Of his life, Johnson says, “My dream already came true…All I ever wanted was to get to just ride around and sing country music.”
The books sells for $125 and a portion of the proceeds will be donated to five charities: Country Music Hall of Fame and Museum’s Hatch Show Print, Darryl Worley Cancer Treatment Center, Southeastern Beefmaster Breeders Association’s College Scholarship Fund, Alabama School of the Deaf and Blind’s Music Education Program, and St. Jude Children’s Research Hospital.
Each copy is personally signed and numbered by Harlan.
