Sammy Kershaw Puts Jamey Johnson on ‘Rolling Stone’ Cover

Sammy Kershaw, Jamey JohnsonJamey Johnson has been in the pages of legendary rock magazine Rolling Stone, and now the singer joins Sammy Kershaw on an updated version of the 1973 Dr. Hook & The Medicine Show classic, ‘Cover of the Rolling Stone‘ for Sammy’s latest album.

Sammy has had luck with remakes before — his version of the Amazing Rhythm Aces‘ ‘Third Rate Romance‘ became a smash for the singer, who tells the9513 he always tries to include a cover tune on each project.

“On every album, I go back and re-record a song that was a hit 20 or 30 years ago. And I got lucky with [that song]. It ended up being a big ole hit record for me. So I was thinking of what song to do and I was sitting in a Lowe’s parking lot one morning. I was listening to satellite radio and a song from 1973 came on. So I decided on the song and then thought to myself that I have to make this a duet. So I called Jamey and asked if he would do a duet with me. [He] said he’d love to do it, and he showed up one afternoon and we did it in one take. It turned out great. Jamey’s such a great vocalist.”

A version of the song by members of the rock group, the Pixies will also be included on ‘Twistable, Turnable Man,’ the tribute disc to the song’s writer Shel Silverstein, which is set for release in June.
