The New York Times boasts about Johnson and "With You I Am" claiming, "Johnson sings with levels of dignity and reserve that appear to have up and left Nashville. This song, from Mr. Johnson's album ‘Gotta Be Me’ -- one of the years sleeper country gems -- is meditative, a little stoic, convincingly plain, and plainly convincing."
Johnson has earned the respect of fans and critics with his unwavering, unapologetic brand of traditionalist-meets-today country music. Fans have streamed his music more than 140 million times and flock to sold-out shows coast to coast. Johnson's wildly impressive touring business landed the coveted cover of Pollstar last month and continued to turn heads this month as he blazed a trail along the West Coast.
