    Default Jamey Johnsons's drummer at Farm Aid?

    Does anyone know who played for Jamey Johnson at Farm Aid. 2009? It wasn't his regular drummer. (who is very good). This guy was an absolute buzz saw and was the busiest Country drummer I've ever seen. He and the bass player were very tight and were playing very syncopated licks and accents together. It was Country Rock on steroids. The fill before the lead break in "The Cost of Living" was the absolute perfect fill for that song.

    Who is this Guy? Does anyone know?

    You can see him play on a clip of the concert on you tube (some fan with a hand held camcorder). I have him on Tivo but that's the only time I've seen him. I don't have any pics. He's Playing Gretchen Wilson's Drummers kit. (Silver Sparkle Ludwigs) with "Ludwig" taped over on the head (I guess he endorses some other company)

    His name is Mike Kennedy. He is George Strait's drummer, but when George isn't touring, he plays with Jamie. I interviewed him last summer and will be posting it soon!
