NASHVILLE, Tenn.– Nashville-based singer/songwriter Paige King Johnson relays genuine talent and passion for her craft with the release of the “Just Like You” music video premiering on CMT. The music video, co-directed by Pam Tillis and producer Josh Sikkema, sports a unique twist and provides a visionary perspective on young love and a relationship that is perfectly imperfect but most importantly, one that belongs to the couple. The single, produced by Bill McDermott and written by Johnson and Regan Rousseau, is Johnson’s first release with the distinguished PCG Artist Development Records based out of Nashville, Tennessee. “Just Like You” is available to download and stream on all digital platforms with the music video premiering on CMT on November 19.

"This release with CMT is so much more than just another thing to put on paper for me. I spent my entire childhood sitting in front of the TV on Saturday and Sunday mornings anxiously waiting for the newest music videos from all my favorite artists to come on CMT, and now my own music is gonna be playing there alongside so many other great artists! After almost 5 years of living in Nashville and working so hard to create music that is worthy to be placed beside the top runners of this town, I’m absolutely humbled and so excited,” shares Johnson.
Aside from working hard to deliver the “Just Like You” music video to fans, Johnson is currently crafting a Christmas cover of “Santa Train”, to be premiered acoustically by Country Rebel on November 25. Originally performed by Patty Loveless, this could not come at a better time, serving fans a needed dose of holiday cheer. With a rare work ethic and a humble heart, there is no project too big for Johnson to tackle!

About Paige King Johnson:
Born in a quiet North Carolina town just 22 miles south of Raleigh, as a young 9-year-old girl, Paige King Johnson spent her summers under the crepe myrtles imitating the styles of Loretta, Patsy, Waylon, and Merle. Having a grandpa as her biggest fan also meant receiving the gift of her first guitar – a baby Taylor - and enrolling in lessons. After her grandpa passed, the bright-eyed dreamer carried on his memory by taking her newfound discovery to local fairs, festivals, and any other stage she was allowed to stand on. As she grew older, Johnson added “opening act” to her resume, supporting chart-topping artists like Scotty McCreery, Neal McCoy, Luke Pell, and James Otto. And with high school graduation came the realization that this was more than a hobby. The Angier native traded in horse pastures and back roads for the bright lights of Music City in 2015. Upon starting school at Belmont University for Music Business, Johnson honed in on the magic that had heavily influenced her as a child: the art of storytelling through songwriting.
The famous Bluebird Café was just one of many writers’ circuits around Nashville that provided a safe space for Johnson to meet other writers, try out new tunes, and get feedback. In return, Johnson began captivating audiences with her down-home stage presence, cut straight to the bone stories and raw country voice, reminiscent of the classic country era. In the last four years, Johnson has traveled back and forth between Nashville and the Carolinas, playing shows like the North Carolina State Fair and running her dinner theater, Country on the Outskirts of Town, that she founded in high school. Johnson’s quarterly show provides an atmosphere for locals to enjoy Southern cooking, fellowship with friends, and the sounds of classic and current country music with some gospel thrown in. A three-time Carolina Music Awards Nominee for Best Country Female Artist, Johnson’s devoted homegrown fan base continues to expand farther than just her backyard.
