“I like the positive message. It reminds us that this too shall pass. Good luck Johnny and keep telling people that everything will be alright! Love you!”– Willie Nelson
“Great to hear not only a legend’s voice but a great friend singing on this album. It’s truly awesome! Love you Johnny Lee!” – John Daly, golfing legend
“I didn’t know how much I needed new music from Johnny Lee until I heard this magnificent, well crafted new project. The veteran country star has plotted new turf as his matured and extremely sincere vocals take you on one journey after another. Everything’s Going to Be Alright? … indeed… If Johnny says it … I believe it!” – Joe Bonsall, The Oak Ridge Boys
I’ve always been a fan of Johnny Lee’s voice and his ability to hold an audience in the palm of his hand, but his new album has renewed my appreciation for Lee as a songwriter. Originals such as “Annie,” “Highways Run Forever,” “Sawin’ on the Fiddle,” “Did You Enjoy Hurting Me” and the title track spotlight his gifts as a writer. And the bonus track, “Father’s Daughter,” written and performed by his daughter Cherish Lee shows the apple doesn’t fall far from the tree. It’s an outstanding album all around, a landmark achievement in an already impressive career.” – Deborah Evans Price, Sounds Like Nashville
“Johnny Lee is in great form on this new collection of songs, which features more of his own original writing than ever.” – Rick Moore, American Songwriter
“You can hear echoes of Leon Russell as Johnny Lee tackles “A Song for You.” Russell was known as the Master of Space and Time. Johnny Lee teams with Toni Jolene Clay to prove that this song is timeless.” – Jimmie Tramel, Tulsa World
“Johnny Lee serves up another delightful throwback country song; this time it tells the tale of relationship tension and a pain mixed with pride. With lines like “the bottle kept” him “warmer than the two loving arms” would, this is an automatic classic. Pick up the album and add it to your country legends shelf.”– Melissa Clarke, Americana Highways
“There Never Was A Doubt In My Mind,” a new track from Johnny Lee’s new album will make you fall in love with him, all over again. Timeless. Classic. Unmistakably, Johnny Lee.”– Laura Wood, Road Dog Media
