“Sometimes you hear a musician and one or two of his songs touch you but I have to say...Chuck Johnson...every one of your songs is solid platinum. I can't say I really have one favorite....except, maybe this one now. Thanks to WestArtVideo for filming this and Shane Combs for posting it. Heartbreaking yet heartwarming and beautiful at the same time.”
"If you haven’t seen Chuck Johnson perform live, you are missing more than a down home slice of Americana but an engaging show where you feel a part of the experience. Between songs, and sometimes during, Chuck converses with the patrons and encourages their participation. As he belts out songs from his CD, Cotton Ain’t King, in a throaty and heart felt style, he tells stories about the figures in his music and occasionally about some of the folks who regularly come out to his shows."
"Congrats to Chuck Johnson “The Charlyhorse” for winning the Charlotte Music Awards, Singer/Songwriter of the Year!!!"
“Cotton Ain’t King by Chuck Johnson is one of those easy sounding discs that works its way into you mind. There is nothing complex about this artist; his music is simple, heartfelt and captures the essence of the songs and the south. Cotton Ain’t King is the track that stands out; with its emotion and passion, it captures the true Southern rock style in the vein of Gregg Allman’s Laid Back album from the seventies. With its understated guitar work and simple arrangements, you can hear the longing for times past that haunt the images of the track. The guitar work has a very subtle effect, much the way J.J. Cale plays, never over playing as so many guitarists do. ”
“Awesome Chuck, You Rock! ”
“Enjoyed your set on Friday night at the Neighborhood Theatre in Charlotte, NC. It was a pleasure to share the stage with you and look forward to doing it again in the future. ~RBB”
“Chuck put on a vocal demonstration as his powerful voice resonated through the Muse - an original bluesy rock-a-billy ballad by this singer-songwriter titled "There's a Rain Coming".”
“Chuck Johnsons natural ease with word pictures spun from an authentic observation of his life, city madness, the experiences he shares, and country charm bring the listener to a place where they feel they know him and can call him friend. This is music from the soul of a passionate heart and well worth the time John Crafton President and Director...Soft Wind Productions and Wind Studios and Associates”
"Chuck Johnson's powerful song 'Cotton Ain't King' is hauntingly authentic. His heartfelt lyrics evoke the sadness of the decline of the southern textile industry." . John Tosco owner and President of tosco music party
