One-hour music intensive radio special pays tribute to American music icon Waylon Jennings.
Waylon Jennings became a country star doing it Nashvilles way. But he became a legend doing things his way. In the early 1970s, his and fellow Texan Willie Nelsons successful fight for creative control of their records launched countrys Outlaw movement. From a career that began in 1958 with a single produced by rock icon Buddy Holly until his death in 2002, Waylon created edgy, timeless, straight-talking music like This Time, Luckenbach, Texas (Back To The Basics Of Love) and Good Hearted Woman (with Willie).
Waylon Jennings: Nashville Rebel looks back on Waylons whole career - from the first Holly-produced single (Jole Blon), a tune from his early 60s days in Phoenix (Stop the World), his early RCA hits, all the Outlaw masterpieces, and I Do Believe as part of the Highhwaymen. Host Cowboy Jack Clement tells the story with help from Waylons wife Jessi Colter, musicians and collaborators Kris Kristofferson, and Richie Albright, and writers Lenny Kaye and Anthony DeCurtis.
He took his name to heart, and then made music from its foursquare beat, and listened to what his inner sense of the music was telling him, and chewed on his songs, because thats what he liked to do best, and let them live out his life, more than one chorus at a time." Lenny Kaye
