Acting Crazy

Album: Nothing Shines Like Neon (2016)
  • Randy Rogers told The Boot how this hell-raising duet with Jamey Johnson came about. "Jamey and I have been writing songs," he said. "We wrote that particular song, 'Actin' Crazy,' and that's kind of why that came along. It just fit; it's his song, too."

    "We played shows with Jamey; we were on the same record label forever together," Rogers added. "There's a bit of friendship there, so that's how that happened."
