Jamey Johnson is a dour traditionalist who mysteriously snuck past the mainstream-Nashville gatekeepers. Now he’s persuaded them to release a double album of the hard stuff. The Guitar Song.

The 25-song collection feels longer than Johnson’s infamous owl sanctuary of a beard, but it’s unlikely any country purists will complain. B+
