A Look Back At The Incredible Career Of Waylon Jennings

I was an outlaw fan, plain and simple.

What is called ‘Outlaw Country’, at least for me, hit in the mid 1970′s.  All of a sudden I was hearing Country Music that…well, didn’t sound like my Daddy’s Country Music.

And it didn’t look like it either.

I suppose being about 20 years old at the time, this music hit me right in my ‘wheelhouse’.  While I still liked Clapton and Wonder, the Beatles and Stones, there was something new coming into my world.

I became a huge fan of the music of names like Willie, Johnny, Jessi, and….

Waylon.

I’m not sure ‘Outlaw Country’ can really, accurately be described.  It was more of a feeling in the sound (and I suppose the look). But to give you something of an idea, let’s take a look back at the career of one of the leaders of this kind of music.

He was a man who did it his way, come hell or high water.  And he had a lot of both.
