Live music with Ronnie Johnson
For over three decades the Valdosta, Georgia native has been wowing audiences with his mix of original and cover songs, playing from Antarctica to South America and from South Carolina to merry old England. Ronnie’s resume is seasoned with gigs and jam sessions that would make other budding artists envious.
Ronnie has shared the stage with Rock n’ Roll Hall of Famer Chuck Berry, and opened for many big name entertainers including the ageless and legendary Tom Jones. Throughout his lifetime Ronnie has jammed with the who’s who of session musicians and counts fellow guitarist Jeff Cook, founding member of Alabama as a close friend.
A gifted songwriter, Ronnie did taste success on the Billboard Top 100. Back in 1986 his original composition 'For Old Times Sake' recorded by Jerry Naylor peaked at #75. Naylor a rockabilly and country singer, garnered success two decades earlier as the lead singer of the newly reformed Crickets, Buddy Holly's former back up band.
