You might be a frat if; you listen to "country" music, but you don't know who Waylon Jennings is.
I think EVERY country station should play Waylon Jennings. and not just once in a blue moon. Who cares what the younger listeners want.
But by 1970 it had already been covered several times, including by John Denver, Waylon Jennings and a pre-fame Elton John.

Here's what I know, there is absolutely no sense in trying to compare Jason Aldean, Luke Bryan or any new age country star to Artists like George Jones, Waylon Jennings or hank Williams it's just not comparable I feel like "new country" is basically it's own genre which most call "bro country" including myself. So bottom line in my opinion classic country and bro country not the same thing, if you don't like it then don't listen to it. Music is always evolving with society and the stars who produce this music are going to produce what people want because music is their passion and they want to be heard, and now that's what people want "bro country" I personally enjoy both and have an appreciation for all you have a problem with them calling themselves "country" but I'm pretty sure you're not upset about any girl who has lived in the city her whole life never stepping foot in the country wearing cut offs and boots and a revealing "flannel" even though 90% of people don't know what legitimate flannel even i ...

Elvis week is almost upon again, the Memphis Boys have been a regular part of Elvis Week for a few years now. Bobby Wood remembers well the day he became a member of Chips Moman's American Sound Studios house band of the late '60s and early '70s, The Memphis Boys. The New Albany, Miss., native recounts in his memoir, "Walking Among the Giants: From Elvis to Garth: The Bobby Wood Story," his days as a struggling solo artist with one minor hit (1964's "If I'm A Fool For Loving You"), and how Moman, after years of trying, lured him to play piano with his roster of ace session players. Those players included guitarist/bassist/producer Tommy Cogbill, guitarist Reggie Young, keyboardist Bobby Emmons, drummer Gene Chrisman, and bassist/string arranger Mike Leech. With the addition of Bobby Wood, the line up was complete on one of the most successful bands of all time. Between 1968 and the closing of the studio in 1972, the band played on an unmatched 122 Billboard hits, including classic cuts by Springfield ("So ...

Not only Metallica covered Bob Seger's "Turn the Page." It was also covered by Waylon Jennings back in 1985. IMO, Waylon's version was the best (and most soulful) of the three. He really kills this song:
Waylonfest is calling on all you truckers out their!!! For all of you that know the story with the Jennings family and Charles Bryon III Dorner then you'll know how special this is. waylon Dorner was a man named after the legend waylon Jennings, although waylon was a legend in his on time.. with a heart of gold and the road on his mind he was a ramblin man just the same as the man he was named after.. although they were both ramblin men their wasn't a child they didn't have time to stop and help.. so let's come together for the waylon Dorner/miss jessi tribute fund which benefits the make a wish foundation and help as many kids as we can!

On this day in 2001 we lost one of the best guitarist that ever picked a guitar.. Chester Burton "Chet" Atkins (June 20, 1924 – June 30, 2001) an American guitarist, occasional vocalist and record producer who, along with Owen Bradley, created the smoother country music style known as the Nashville sound, which expanded country's appeal to adult pop music fans as well. Atkins' signature picking style was inspired by Merle Travis. Other major guitar influences were Django Reinhardt, George Barnes, Les Paul and later Jerry Reed. His trademark picking style and musicianship brought him admirers within and outside the country scene, both in the United States and internationally. Atkins produced records for The Browns, Hank Snow, Porter Wagoner, Norma Jean, Dolly Parton, Dottie West, Perry Como, Elvis Presley, The Everly Brothers, Eddy Arnold, Don Gibson, Jim Reeves, Jerry Reed, Skeeter Davis, Waylon Jennings and many others. Among many honors, Atkins received 14 Grammy Awards as well as the Grammy Lifetime ...

Whittle With Shine All Night…Bail Hay Every Day! I was watching an episode of Guitar Center Sessions on television tonight in which Gary Allan was the featured artist. He and the host were discussing the current condition of country music. Allan was more or less defending contemporary country that the host was rightfully “calling out.” Attempting to play both sides, Gary Allan was also trying to establish his credibility as a fan of traditional country music. He said something along the lines, “Yeah, I cut my teeth on the Highwaymen, those guys- Kris Kristofferson, Willie Nelson, Johnny Cash, and Roy Orbison.” As a major country recording artist for some time now, how does Gary Allan confuse Roy Orbison for Waylon Jennings? Even the British host caught the error but never brought it to Allan's attention. Worse yet, how does Allan leave Waylon Jennings out of the Highwaymen, period? C’mon man, this is your supposed to be your passion, your industry, and your livelihood. This blunder is compara ...
Which concert disappointed you? Which exceeded your expectations? For the latter, I would say The Marshall Tucker Band. Every song had a long guitar solo, and each solo sounded the same. I had friends who were big fans just get up an walk out. The ones that exceeded my expectations were the Kinks (An unknown John Cougar was the opening act), and Waylon Jennings. Waylon had Asleep At the Wheel and the Crickets as the opening acts. The Crickets also served as his band.

I had played mostly originals and songs from "Old Time Family Jam" with Mama Madgelee Hanes Moore the 1st two hours and when my friends got up to jam we lit into two *** kickin' rounds of classic country and bluegrass jams.

Thank God for Waylon Jennings. Saw him live at The Bottom Line in NYC. 89 or 90. Tiny intimate venue. Robert Duvall was at table next to me. Thanks Dad for teaching me who he was from Buddy Holly to all his solo success.

(thanks Tammy) This one was easy to do, because I already knew the words, and I'll bet you all do too! Admit it! We were all glued to the TV on Friday evening at 8:30 PM to watch it. You're a liar if you say that you weren't. Brad Hey!! Don't forget the liking and sharing stuff too.
I have two extra tickets to the redneck country club to see Captain Legendary Band playing a Waylon Jennings tribute concert tonight. Anyone interested in going with Melissa and I?
Hank Williams, Hank Williams Jr, George Jones, Johnny Cash, Waylon Jennings, Willie Nelson, and that's just a few.
Tonight’s oldie is song featuring the distinctive voices of two artists who are members of two truly great bands. Stevie Nicks and Don Henley enjoyed successful solo careers when they weren’t performing with Fleetwood Mac and The Eagles. In 1980, these two recorded a duet written by Nicks that was originally intended for Waylon Jennings and Jessi Colter. Released in 1981, “Leather and Lace” became a big hit for Nicks and Henley. By early 1982 this single, which is certified gold, reached on the pop chart and on the easy listening chart.

My favorite photo of Waylon Jennings is when he is meeting former First Lady Rosalynn Carter . He's taking a drag off of a cigarette .
All right country music people. Who else is out there that I might like? I strongly dislike most country I hear, but I do love Johnny Cash, The Avett Brothers (not really country I know, but influenced by it), Zac Brown Band, Waylon Jennings, Old Crow Medicine Show, Willie Nelson, The Civil Wars, Alison Krass, Nicklecreek (see Avett Brothers above), and some of the stuff I've hear from Kacey Musgrave. So?

Friends! Tennesseans! Countrymen! There are some covert agents, neigh, a plague!, sent into the country music world by the dreaded pop music culture whose mission is to shake the genre to its core and possibly destroy it all together! Fueled by "pretty boys" and drama infused rich girls whom only put on boots as a fashion statement and have never once experienced work or a blue collar saturday night, this plague, known on the charts as "Luke Bryan" and/or "Florida-Georgia Line", has acted in the absence of such great country guardians as Johnny Cash, Waylon Jennings, and George Jones, to merge the country with the dreaded Pop. Our chief savior, King George, has become weak from carrying the burden by himself and needs our help. (Cue sad music) Please stop asking them to be played on the radio before they gain too much power and we are soon all transformed into fairies like themselves. Its a small step, but a step in the right direction; s step back to the time when men were men! (Cue patriotic country m . ...

I very rarely show my eyes, because that is where all the pain lies. But I never been more focused, all the let downs, all the betrayels, and failures are buried in the past.

Waylon Jennings and John Anderson together is da bomb
I'm kind of embarrassed to say that Bobbi and I just saw Tony Orlando (without Dawn) and we both agreed it was one of the most entertaining shows we have ever seen! His band was as talented as any with a range of songs from Led Zeppelin to Waylon Jennings, Willie Nelson and James Taylor. Yeah, I know all of you are saying "they really are so old"! .But let it be known there were young people in the audience who were dancing in the aisles!

Here's a FUNNY from tonite's show at Shamrock Sports Bar & Grille in Addyston,Ohio. As I am rolling on thru a 4 hr solo acoustic set of my music playing about 90% originals with songs by Waylon Jennings, Kris Kristofferson, David Allan Coe, Chris Knight, John Prine, Hank Williams and Johnny Cash peppered in, this fella comes up and asks if I play any Luke Bryan. When I informed him that NO INDEED,I do not play any Luke Bryan songs, the young fella's response was " That's OK man, not many people can actually play COUNTRY music like Luke Bryan or Brantley Gilbert. You sound real good and are probably better off sticking to playing all those Rock N Roll songs you've been playing all nite. They're probably better for the soul," I politely nodded to the fella and made my Bourbon disappear whilst I went on about my business. I guess I WILL stick to playing my "Rock N Roll Songs" and I reckon I'll get along just fine,LOL! Another Day Alive Raisin' *** & Slingin' Gravel.
BEHIND THE SONG: Suspicious Minds This was the last hit for Elvis during his lifetime. A remixed version of "A Little Less Conversation" hit in the UK in 2002. Memphis singer Mark James wrote this. He recorded and released his own version, but it didn't go anywhere. Memphis Soul producer Chips Moman brought this to Presley in 1969, and Elvis immediately fell in love with it and decided he could turn it into a hit, even though it had flopped for James. This was recorded between 4-7 in the morning, during the landmark Memphis session that helped Elvis reclaim his title of "The King." This was a big comeback song for Elvis. It was 7 years since his last hit. Elvis' publishing company, along with his manager Col. Tom Parker, tried to get their usual cut of the royalties from this and threatened to stop the recording if they didn't. Elvis insisted on recording the song regardless. This song was inducted into the Grammy Hall of Fame in 1999. Artists to cover this song include Dwight Yoakam, Waylon Jennings, The ...
Willie Nelson, Waylon Jennings, Johnny Cash, Kenny Rogers & George Strait are by far my favorite artists.

February 13 was the twelfth anniversary of the death of Waylon Jennings. In 2012, CounterPunch editor Jeffrey St. Clair published the following: Remembering Waylon Jennings: An Honest Outlaw “To live outside the law you must be honest,” sings Bob Dylan in “Absolutely Sweet Marie,” a tune that has always struck me as a comic rejoinder to Leadbelly’s great prison song “Midnight Special.” But those lines by Dylan could also be an epitaph for the life and career of Waylon Jennings. Jennings was an outlaw in all the right respects, not least as an outlaw to an atrophied and corrupt recording industry that was exploiting him and his cohorts. At great professional risk, Jennings defied the pious and rigid lords of Nashville, the country purists of the Opry, who sneered at pop sounding songs and banned full drum sets from their stage. He fought as fiercely as Chuck D or Pearl Jam against the bosses of the record biz, who defile the sound and content of recordings and treat performers as cattle. When ...

Waylon Jennings' life should have come to an end when he was 21 years and 7 months old, but through a twist of fate he became a part of rock and roll folklore, and the central character for one of my favorite trivia stories of all time. Waylon had been hired by Buddy Holly to play bass guitar in his band during the Winter Dance Party of 1959. I've often told the story, but it always bears telling one more time, especially on this day. Buddy had chartered a small airplane to fly himself, along with Tommy Allsup and Waylon from their show in Clear Lake, Iowa to Moorhead, Minnesota because their tour bus kept breaking down during the sub-freezing conditions and Buddy wanted to fly ahead to rest-up and do laundry before their next concert. Following the show, J.P. Richardson asked Waylon if he would give up his seat so The Big Bopper didn't have to ride another leg on the bus, and Ritchie Valens won a coin toss backstage with Tommy for the final seat. As the friends said goodbye outside the Surf Ballroom ...

Learn Our History Today: On February 3, 1959, three rising American rock and roll stars, Buddy Holly, Ritchie Valens and J.P. "The Big Bopper" Richardson were killed when their chartered plane crashed during a Midwest tour. The event has become known as “the day the music died.” At the time of the deadly crash, Holly, Valens, and Richardson were some of the most famous musicians in America, with Holly having recently released the smash hit song, “That'll Be the Day,” Valens the songs, “Donna” and “La Bamba,” and Richardson the song, "Chantilly Lace.” On February 3, in the midst of a terrible winter storm, the trio’s tour bus had been frequently breaking down and they needed to get to their next stop quickly. Holly decided to charter a plane for the group, but the plane was too small to hold all the performers and their bands, so some would fly and others would try to drive. Ritchie Valens won a coin toss for a coveted spot on the plane, and Holly band member Waylon Jennings, who had al ...
In one night we lost three seminal rock and roll singers...but little known is who was also on stage that night. The Big Bopper (JP Richardson), Buddy Holly and Ritchie Valens, who, along with Dion & The Belmonts, were headlining the Winter Dance Party 1959. Buddy's guitarist for the tour was Waylon Jennings, who'd go onto becoming a country music legend. Later that evening Bobby Vee, whose vocals sounded very similar to Holly's joined, along with Frankie Avalon and Fabian. Bobby Vee - who everyone said I was the spitting image of as a teenager - finished the tour for Holly and became a star on his own. We met one night at KHJ-TV in L.A. I was walking down a dark corridor to the bathroom from the newsroom and he was coming the other direction. When we met I shook his hand and said "Bobby, people have always said I look just like you." Without batting an eye he instantly replied "Hey, everyone always told me I looked just like you." Duh, did I feel dumb. "La Bamba," the film about Ritchie Valens was filme ...
Billy Joe Shaver with Waylon Jennings - Heart of Texas: via Where I am!
I had the opportunity to shoot an interview with Jimmy Webb last week. We had a great conversation about the Main Point. Even though he only played there twice (1970 and '71) he had vivid memories of his time there. He talked about how he came to write about it in his song "if You see Me Getting Smaller". He told me how he wrote the song for Waylon Jennings but he ended up recording it himself also(both came out in 1977 - Waylon's album was "Ol' Waylon" and Jimmy's was "Mirage"). If you don't remember the song the 2nd verse is: God bless old Philadelphia they were standing in the rain Out in front of the Main Point, a wet and lonely train Who knows who they came to see a mad man full of beer A four piece band and a charter bus my border-line career If you see me gettin' smaller I'm leavin' don't be grieving Just got to get away from here If you see me gettin' smaller don't worry I'm in no hurry I've got the right to disappear I'm going to try and post some of the interview soon...

Spent the last week listing to Classic Country on Slacker Radio. I just logged into FB and it suggested I like Merle Haggard, Waylon Jennings, Tracy Lawrence, Charlie Daniels and Lupe Fiasco. I'm not sure if I'm more disturbed that FB knows what station on listing to on a separate app, or that it makes a connection between Waylon Jennings and Lupe Fiasco.
So I got from the library an audio dramatization of the The New Testament. It is done the same way as before they had television when everyone would gather around the radio. This audio theater stars Jim Caviezel as Jesus, Richard Dreyfuss, Michael W Smith, Marisa Tomei, and john Schneider from the original dukes of hazzard. It would be perfect if Waylon Jennings did the narrator or better to say the balladeer of the New Testament!!! He could even do the theme song about Jesus called the good old boy!

AFRICAN AMERICAN HISTORY MOMENT January 28,1985: Supergroup USA for Africa (United Support of Artists for Africa) records the hit single "We Are the World", to help raise funds for Ethiopian famine relief. "We Are The World" was written by Michael Jackson and Lionel Richie, and produced by Quincy Jones and Michael Omartian for the album We Are the World. With sales in excess of 20 million copies, it is one of the fewer than 30 all-time singles to have sold 10 million (or more) copies worldwide. LEGACY: ●"We Are the World" has been recognized as a politically important song, which "affected an international focus on Africa that was simply unprecedented". It has been credited with creating a climate in which musicians from around the world felt inclined to follow. ●According to The New York Times' Stephen Holden, since the release of "We Are the World", it has been noted that movement has been made within popular music to create songs that address humanitarian concerns. ●"We Are the World" was also in ...
lol It was just a Waylon Jennings joke. Timely, I know.
If any one performer personified the outlaw country movement of the '70s, it was Waylon Jennings. Though he had been a professional musician since the late '50s, it wasn't until the '70s that Waylon, with his imposing baritone and stripped-down, updated honky tonk, became a superstar. Jennings rejec...

The country singer Eric Church might have written a bad song once or twice, but he’s never recorded one. Church arrived in 2006 with a debut album, Sinners Like Me, that was, in a word, sharp: a dozen sharp-witted and sharp-elbowed songs, delivered by Church in his piercing, slightly nasal voice, a sound that comes slicing right at you, like a table saw running through your speaker cabinet. Since then, Church has released a new album roughly every two and a half years, each stronger than the previous, proving himself not just the most consistent male country star of his generation but one of the brightest lights in any genre—right up there with Kanye West, Beyoncé, Vampire Weekend, et al. Church’s new album, The Outsiders, is, in keeping with the pattern, his best yet; it’s also his most blustery, with the guitars and the outlaw swagger turned up, as the poet said, to eleven. It opens with the title track, an absurdly bombastic biker-bar anthem that Church likened, in an interview with the websit ...

I like Marty Robins, Merle Haggard, Willie Nelson, and Waylon Jennings. The only country artists in the current era that I like are Kenny Chesney, Brad Paisley, and Josh Turner. So yes, I'm a rock/metal drummer that likes country music still. Surprise!

Country music felt a seismic shift this year as some of the people most intimately linked to the format took their final bow. Among these were the master vocal stylists George Jones and Ray Price and the less-heralded Tompall Glaser, who was instrumental in birthing the Outlaw movement that helped make superstars of Waylon Jennings and Willie Nelson. Few might recognize the name Charles Carr, but most would have heard of the shadowy figure at the wheel of the 1952 powder-blue Cadillac convertible who drove on as Hank Williams was drawing his last breaths in the back seat. This year, it was Carr's turn to take that final ride. Departing also were two pop stars who made significant forays into country music, back in the days when the division between pop and country was more porous -- Patty Andrews (of the sweet-singing Andrew Sisters) and the inimitable Patti Page (of "Tennessee Waltz" fame). CMT lost one of its own stalwarts, too, with the exit of editorial director Chet Flippo, a renowned journalist and ...

Today, we celebrate a real renaissance man in rock music history, Lenny Kaye. Kaye, first and foremost, was the lead guitarist in The Patti Smith Group, producing her earliest work and playing with her throughout the ‘70s, and then rejoining her in the mid-‘90s. He also played in other bands, including the Jim Carroll Band. Before his professional rocking days, he was a music critic and magazine editor, publishing some of Stephen King’s first work. He later put together the historic double album compilation Nuggets, spurring the first garage rock revival. He is also an accomplished historian and author, writing books about everything from Waylon Jennings to ‘20s and ‘30s crooners. In honor of this fascinating career, please grab your iPod or MP3 player, hit shuffle and share the first 10 songs that come up.   1. The Who – Squeeze Box (The Who By Numbers): This novelty song was the only hit single from this underrated mid-‘70s Who album, but I remember it best for its inclusion in an episode ...
