Singer/songwriter Buck Johnson hails from the back roads of Shady Grove, Alabama - which is just outside Birmingham. During his childhood he toured with his family singing Gospel music throughout the South. Buck was influenced by music of the South... namely Country, Gospel, Blues and Rock. Since the age of 4, Buck has always been singing on stage whether in churches, bars or concert halls.
He has had the privilege of touring and recording with such notable artists as: Aeromsith (currently), The Doobie Brothers, Tal Bachman, John Waite, Shawn Mullins, Matthew Sweet, and Timothy B. Schmit of the Eagles.
As a songwriter, Buck co-wrote the international hit single for Carlos Santana “Just Feel Better,” featuring Steven Tyler from Aerosmith. And also co-wrote and produced the song "You Came Along" for Billy Ray Cyrus featured in the Lifetime movie "Flying By" starring Billy Ray Cyrus. Buck also has had numerous songs in T.V. shows and in major film releases.
In 2006 Buck joined the Country band Whiskey Falls, which released its debut album in September of 2007 on Midas Records featuring the Country Top 40 hit singles “Last Train Running” and “Falling Into You.”
After extensive touring with Whiskey Falls, Buck was inspired to start a new musical project that reflected his life journey with all its ups and downs. Songs like “Enjoying The Ride” and ”Live For The Song” describe the musical road of a “lifer” singer-songwriter/musician with all the twists and turns. “Country Rockin’ and Reelin’” talks about his musical roots, influences, where he’s from and the musical place he lives today. ”Southern Belle,” a fun, CCR-influenced romp, is about the attraction to a beautiful, and fiery Southern woman. And “After All These Years” is an emotional ballad about the love shared with and commitment he has to his wife beautiful Kym.
All the songs were written by the writing team of Buck Johnson and producer/songwriter Charlie Midnight (James Brown, Joe Cocker, The Doobie Brothers, Joni Mitchell, Jamie Johnson, Cher, Hillary Duff), with additional collaborations on “Enjoying The Ride” and “Live For The Song,” with hit Nashville songwriter James Dean Hicks (“Goodbye Time”, Blake Shelton, “Jesus And Mama,” Confederate Railroad, “National Woman’s Working Holiday,” Sammy Kershaw). Buck is produced by producer/mixer Mark Needham (Chris Issak, Fleetwood Mac, The Killers) and Charlie Midnight.
