Jamey Johnson is releasing new music through his own Big Gassed Records. The label’s first project is a five-song holiday EP called The Christmas Song, which unveils the first new Johnson composition in four years, “South Alabam Christmas.” The song was written with Bill Anderson and Buddy Cannon on the same day it was recorded in the famed RCA Studio A.

The Secret Sisters join Johnson on “Mele Kalikimaka,” and Hawaiian singer Lily Meola guests on “Baby, It’s Cold Outside.” The Christmas Song also includes “Pretty Paper,” which was written by one of Johnson’s heroes, Willie Nelson. Johnson recorded the vocals in the same studio in Garland, Texas where Willie recorded Red Headed Stranger. A limited number of autographed copies of The Christmas Song are available at www.jameyjohnson.com.

Through Big Gassed, Johnson says he will be releasing his new songs as soon as they are recorded, without waiting for a full album release. The label will put out its own projects as well as partner with other record companies to release music by other artists, which could include projects produced by Johnson.

Johnson has won Song of the Year Awards from the Country Music Association and Academy of Country Music.

 His Mercury Nashville 2008 album, That Lonesome Song, was certified platinum, and his 2010 double album, The Guitar Song, received a gold certification. His fifth studio album was a star-studded tribute project to late songwriter Hank Cochran.
