Today would have been Waylon Jennings’ 94th birthday! Waylon was best known for founding the ‘outlaw country’ movement. Once regarded as ‘too rock’ for country, Jennings is a favorite among modern country fans. Adored for his ‘traditional’ sound today, there’s irony in the modern perception given how rebellious Waylon was in his day.
Despite being an outlaw, he had no problem topping the charts all throughout the 70’s and 80’s. Songs like, Amanda, Luckenbach, Texas, and our Rewind Song of the Day made Waylon a household name in that era. Check him out and celebrate his birthday with some outlaw attitude!
