Johnson first came to national prominence in the mid ‘90s as the lead vocalist and guitarist for Alabama based rock band, Brother Cane. The band released three albums on Virgin Records (selling a cumulative of over 500,000 records) that would yield three #1 singles on rock radio ("Got No Shame," "And Fools Shine On," and "I Lie in the Bed I Make").  Brother Cane toured extensively as a headliner and was also support act for rock legends Van Halen, Aerosmith, and Robert Plant.
