About Us:
Mike Johnson is Country Music's No.1 Black Yodeler. In April 1981 he did his 1st recording session at Jim Maxwell's Globe Recording Studio in Nashville Tennessee. From that came his 1st commercial release, a 45rpm single "King of the Fish" on Side-1 and "Please Don't Squeeze the Charmin" on Side-2. His 2nd 45 rpm single "Hooked On Rodeo" with "I Hear Her Words Ringin'" came from a recording session at Jim Stanton's Champ Recording Studio on Church Street in Nashville. Stanton founded Rich-R-Tone Records in Johnson City, Tennessee in 1945, and later moved to Nashville. Mike Johnson formed Roughshod Records in 1987 and in November 2014 the label produced its 49th and 50th CDs. "Old Time Country Songs Are They Really Dead and Gone?" featuring James Adelsberger and "Doggone It I've Written A Sad Song Again" featuring Mike Johnson. These and a number of Johnson's music productions have been acquired by the Library of Congress Recorded Sound Reference Center and the Performing Arts Reading Room over the years. Johnson has written over 1200 songs, including over 150 yodeling songs and in September 2002 he was inducted into America's Old Time Country Music Hall of Fame by the National Traditional Country Music Association in Avoca, Iowa.

Thanks Dan and welcome aboard. "To a time when things were different." You wouldn't happen to be a first generation baby-boomer like me, would you?
