Welcome to Derek Johnson Country! Known for his two Billboard Top 40 Hits: "Real Cool Kinda Hot" and "Right Beer Right Now"!
Thanks for droppin' and checkin' out the coolest all-American Country Artist and Songwriter who's writing his story more and more day by day!
Born and raised in the Deep South, Derek is a 5th generation farm-boy from small-town USA! Hailing from towns the size of T-shirt pockets! He's lived in 8 states coast to coast! He's a small town rambler and dirt road king... his life ain't nothin' but a country song! It doesn't take long to hear those roots come out by dabbling around the songs he's writing and singing.
He's most notable for his two Billboard Top 40 Hits: "Real Cool Kinda Hot" and "Right Beer Right Now." Other tunes such as: "Put Me In A Truck," "South Side of Heaven," "That Guy," and "Red and White and Blue and Beer" are amongst perfect examples of all things small town with a dose of slang layered thick with a whole lotta twang!
His Grandfather was roommates with legendary Hank Williams Sr. and toured the circuits in the 1940's and early 50's around some of Country's biggest legends: Red Foley, Bob Wills, Hank Snow, etc. He started teaching Derek guitar at the young age of 6. It was through the heart of a Grandpa that instilled the ‘chasin’ that neon rainbow’ fire into the heart of this future star.
He's a US Army Veteran and avid in multiple philanthropies of veterans. He holds a Bachelor's in Business from The University of Alabama and MBA from Colorado State University, the first Country Artist with a Masters Degree.
When he's not writing or playing, he can be found somewhere fishing, hunting, riding dirt roads, sittin' by a campfire, chillin' on the tailgate or in a lawn chair by the creek!
He doesn't just sing country songs... he is THE country song!
