The Essential Highwaymen
Frequently referred to as "the Mount Rushmore of country music," the Highwaymen—Johnny Cash, Willie Nelson, Waylon Jennings, and Kris Kristofferson—were American country music's first supergroup, an epic quartet comprised of the outlaw country genre's pioneering stars. The Highwaymen were active from 1985 to 1995, and this 2-CD collection highlights their greatest hits including “Highwayman”, “Luckenbach, Texas”, and “Live Forever”. Also included are selections from each artist’s solo albums, giving a well-rounded portrait of these fabulous performers.
MIM’s celebration of country music includes exhibits in both the United States / Canada Gallery and Artist Gallery. Displayed in the Carter Family and Johnny Cash exhibit is Cash’s “Man in Black” stage suit and Martin D-42JC Johnny Cash Signature Model guitar. Videos of Waylon Jennings and Willie Nelson are included in the comprehensive Country exhibit in the United States/Canada Gallery.
