Johnny Bush began his career as a member of Ray Price's Cherokee Cowboys. He then joined Willie Nelson as a drummer and member of his Record Men. Bush and Nelson remained close and would aid each other with a hit song.

His recording career began to take off in the late 1960's with songs like "My Cup Runneth Over" "There Stands The Glass" "Undo The Right" "Green Snakes On The Ceiling" "My Joy" and "You Gave Me A Mountian." He received the Most Promising New Artist from Record World in 1968 and 1969. Music City News named Bush the Most Promising Male Vocalist in 1970. The credits continued to come in 1970 as BMI chose Bush for their BMI Songwriter Achievement Award.

Bush rose to fame throughout the country music industry with his recording of "Whiskey River" in 1973. The Library of Congress now recognizes the song as one of the all time Top 20 country music standards. The song has also earned Bush a BMI Million-Air Award.

The National Council of Communicative Disorders and the American Speech-Language-Hearing Association honored Bush with their 2001 Annie Glenn Award at the 20th Anniversary Communication Awards at the Kennedy
Center Terrace Theater. The Annie Glenn Award, first presented to James Earl Jones, is presented annually to an individual who has had a communication disorder and through his success, serves as an inspiration to others. Other recipients of the Annie Glenn Award have been Sen. John Glenn, President Bill Clinton, Jenny Craig, Sen. Bob Dole and Mark Herndon of Alabama.

In August of 2003, Bush was inducted into the Texas Country Music Hall of Fame. The award was presented to Bush for his major contributions to Texas Country Music in the annual ceremony in Carthage, Texas. Willie Nelson inducted Bush into the Hall of Fame along with Kris Kristofferson and Lefty Frizzell.

The University of Texas Press released Bush's biography "Whiskey River Take My Mind" covering his entire life and career from Houston, Texas, to the Texas Country Music Hall of Fame. Willie Nelson wrote the introduction for the book.

Bush has most recently recorded some projects for Heart of Texas Records including "Lillies White Lies" "Texas Legends" "Who'll Buy My Memories?" and "Reflections." His latest project is on the BGM label and titled "The Absolute Johnny Bush."
