Part of being a well rounded musician is to take a creation and make it your own. Jamey Johnson has had a way to take individual cover songs, massage them, and create masterpieces that are complimentary to the original version. He has a way to preserve the heritage of classics, yet put his own twist.

Case in point is his latest release, "You Are My Sunshine." The happy summer camp tune that we all have grown up singing takes on a totally different and darker meaning. With the help of Twiggy Ramirez from Marilyn Manson's band, along with Shooter Jennings, the trio brings out the darkness with the haunting vocals and solitary guitar ringing throughout. The musical take makes the song take on the meaning of sadness, darkness, and eerieness with the overall production.

Tuesday night during the Sons of Anarchy episode, "You Are My Sunshine," the song was predominate in the ending sequence that fit just perfect.

The song is now available on iTunes, Amazon, as well as limited edition physical formats in vinyl and cassette at
