Visting Choctaw, Mississippi – this unforgettable country singer and one of his closest friends dusted off this 80s hit for a performance that nobody will soon forget!
A flat-out flashback, Jamey Johnson, and fellow singer Cody Jinks unveiled their choice in surprise songs to the crowd and received an overwhelming response back – especially when the audience figured out what they were about to sing.
“I don’t even have to ask – I know you know this one,” Johnson said with a chuckle as he strummed his guitar. “I don’t think we’ve ever done this with the band! They’ve never done this…in fact, I don’t think anybody’s done this song since about 1980!”
With just the first few plucks of his guitar strings, everyone caught onto the song he was talking about and excitement washed across the entire crowd.
Singing “The Good Ol’ Boys” from television’s Dukes Of Hazzard, both Johnson and Jinks brought this song back to the forefront of everyone’s mind in a very special way.
The song, which was originally written and performed by none other than the legendary Waylon Jennings, was released as a single and had a separate version used for the TV show with varying instrumental spots and chorus repeats.
Back in 1980, Waylon’s hit soared to the #1 spot on the American Country chart and peaked in the Top 20 of Billboard’s Hot 100.
