Americana Highways presents this premiere of Johnny Lee’s song “Livin’ Hell” from his forthcoming album Everything’s Gonna’ Be Alright. The album was produced by Johnny Lee and Buddy Hyatt, engineered by Zach Allen and mixed by Buddy Hyatt. “Livin’ Hell” is Johnny Lee on vocals; Brent Mason on guitar; Lonnie Wilson on drums; Duncan Mullins on bass; Buddy Hyatt on piano; Joel Key on acoustic guitar; Scotty Sanders on steel guitar; and Megan Mullins on fiddle. In addition, on the album, the song “Did You Enjoy Hurting Me,” features Willie Nelson on guitar.
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.
I would like to thank Americana Highways for premiering ‘Livin’ Hell.’ I wrote this song after playing a show with Johnny Paycheck many years ago. He was going on vacation the next day and missed his flight, so he had to call home. Well the conversation when he came back became the meaning for this song. Thank you Johnny Paycheck! — Johnny Lee
