Looking like a cross between metal musician Rob Zombie and legendary comic book writer Alan Moore, sporting big, shoulder-length locks and a wispy, face-consuming beard, it's hard to imagine that country singer and songwriter Jamey Johnson spent eight years as a clean-cut Marine. Mixing elements of traditional country and outlaw Southern rock, Johnson is hitting his commercial stride with the release of his latest record, “The Guitar Song,” a collection of 25 tunes divided into a tonally fitting “Black Album” and “White Album.” Johnson is scheduled to play the National on Sunday, Sept. 19, at 6 p.m. $27.50-$30.
