The smooth and mellow, cool and country vocals are what make him the new sound of Country. Reminiscent of Southern back roads, Saturday night anthems, and down-home friends and family brings to you, singer/songwriter Derek Johnson. The grandson and son of cotton, soybean, and cattle farmers, just good ole southern people…his roots are the definition of the songs he sings. Born in the deep south, Mobile, Alabama, he grew up in small nearby towns of Saraland, Excel, and Perdue Hill. He has also resided in Mississippi, Virginia, Texas, Tennessee, Oklahoma, California, and Colorado, all of which has molded him into who he is today. At age 5, he started learning guitar from his Grandfather who was a roommate to and worked side by side with Hank Williams Sr. at the Alabama Dry-docks, in Mobile, Alabama, before Hank’s rise to fame. He also kept company with nothin’ but the best and toured the same circuits as Hank, Bob Wills, George Morgan, Red Foley and several more. After graduating from the University of Alabama with a Bachelor’s in Business, Derek moved to Nashville and worked on Music Row with many notable artists, songwriters, and producers from 2008 to 2011. It was there where he developed key relationships on Music Row that would end up bringing him back to Music City. Derek Johnson tunes upIn mid-2011, he had a heart-felt calling to wear a different pair of boots. He enlisted in the United States Army (yes, enlisted with a degree) and served as a 14S (Air and Missile Defense; 11th ACR Blackhorse). He had his Warrant Officer Packet submitted with dreams of becoming a Pilot, but those were cut short due to multiple severe injuries earning the titles: Disabled Veteran and Wounded Warrior. After walking on a cane for a few years, along with extensive rehabilitation and therapy, he shed the cane and now walks with a noticeable limp. Despite the continued aches and pains, you cannot find him without the lack of humor or positivity, as he’s coined his own motto: “I walk with a limp, not just cause I’m country!” After retiring from the Army, he moved back to Nashville in 2016 and reunited with several colleagues including hit songwriter’s and producer’s Phil O’Donnell and Billy Lawson to launch his career as a singer/songwriter. His debut Album was produced by Phil O’Donnell. Phil has written three #1 singles for Blake Shelton (“Doin What She Likes”), George Strait (“Give It All We Got Tonight”), and Montgomery Gentry (“Back When I Knew It All”);
