In an homage befitting an American master who had songs on the country charts for nearly half a century, “Living For A Song” tells the story of the making of this loving tribute album from Jamey Johnson that features songs and commentary from Nashville legend and producer Buddy Cannon. This tribute is now available on ID Radio.
Cochran, who died at age 74 in 2010, is considered one of the greatest songwriters in the history of country music. He helped create the template for writing the perfect country song and had an uncanny knack for capturing the gut-wrenching depths of heartache so powerfully, yet so simply.
This radio special covers the songs and the making of the record that is one of the most anxiously awaited album releases of the year, featuring artists like Willie Nelson, Elvis Costello, Emmylou Harris, Merle Haggard, Kris Kristofferson along with Jamey Johnson.
