Waylon: An Autobiography
Waylon Jennings enjoyed a stellar music career for four decades and this no-holds-barred autobiography reveals the story of a man who infused conservative country music traditions with the energy of rock and roll to rewrite the rules of popular music in America. His 1976 anthology album, The Outlaws, was a stunning platinum success, and from 1985 to 1995 Waylon, Willie Nelson, Johnny Cash, and Kris Kristofferson formed the Highwaymen-- an epic quartet comprised of the outlaw country genre's pioneering stars and frequently referred to as "the Mount Rushmore of country music"
With anecdotes, portraits, and little-known facts about Jennings’s fellow country music stars, this book overflows with the honesty, true humor, and down-home charisma of an authentic honky-tonk hero.
