Previously a married man, Jamey tied the knot with a woman named Amy. However, he hasn't disclosed the year of his wedding or his first meet with his ex-wife.
Jamey and his then-wife also had a child from their relationship, a daughter named Kylee Johnson.
Further, Jamey was also prospering professionally. He had signed his first record deal with BNA in April 2005 and even released his debut album titled The Dollar the next year in January. However, both his professional and personal life soon turned to chaos as Jamey started losing things that were once the most valuable to him.
Soon after he finished touring for the promotion of his first album, the Alabama native was dropped off from the label after his second song, Rebelicious, failed to gain popularity which even soured his relationship with his wife.
The couple eventually divorced, but fans are still unsure if the reason for his divorce was Jamey's sudden exile from BNA or whether it was just a trigger for a long unhealthy marriage. Only Jamey can answer this.
The son of Howard Johnson, Jamey, was raised in a family of music enthusiasts. After his isolation following the divorce, he started living with a friend while also writing songs and even turned to alcoholism.
During his isolation period, Jamey co-wrote the song titled Give It Away, which became a number one hit in the US charts and even won the Song Of The Year at the CMA Awards in 2007. While accepting his award, Jamey thanked his ex-wife and mentioned that Amy also deserved half the song's credits. He told during his acceptance speech,
"I want to thank my ex-wife, Amy…. She surely deserves half of this song and half of this award, too."
Although Jamey, who ages 45, never got back together with his wife, he still holds high regard for their once adorable relationship. Further, he is close to his teenage daughter Kylee and even brings her to attend different events.
Kylee made her appearance with his father at the funeral event of late George Jones on 2 May 2013.
