  • The most underrated musician / singer of all! A shame. He made so much better songs than "Take this job and shove it" or "She's all I got"... - "Angel of the highway" is a fuckin' legendary masterpiece.. Put Johnny Paycheck in the Country Music Hall of Fame!
  • Great Singer

  • What a great man. One of the best musicians. Legends like you will never die! Your songs are unforgettable... - Johnny Paycheck, George Jones, Waylon Jennings and Hank Williams must rise again to bring REAL COUNTRY back (together with David Allan Coe, Rebel son and Hank 3!) - R.I.P. Johnny Paycheck!
  • hey barmaid,set us up with some of that colorado kool-aid!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
  • Steel guitar never sounded so good...
  • Johnny Paycheck gets terribly overlooked. He's so much more than "Take This Job & Shove It". Just looking at the guy, it's hard to believe he had the vocal range and talent that he did, not just for performing, but songwriting too. I mean, look at song titles like "He's In a Hurry (To Get Home To My Wife)", "If I'm Gonna Sink(I Might As Well Go To The Bottom)" & "I'm The Only Hell (Mama Ever Raised)". They're as witty and great as they sound. RIP Johnny. You left the world some fantastic country music which deserves to be passed on for generations.
