Publisher's Summary

Waylon Jennings gave up his spot on a flight that changed music history. His mentor, Buddy Holly, took that seat and was killed when the plane crashed.

Born dirt poor, Jennings went from country disc jockey to country superstar, leading the revolution in country music with his platinum album The Outlaws. Through his eyes we see the Nashville scene in the early days, and through his honest, no-holds-barred storytelling, we follow his struggle to overcome drugs and impending bankruptcy to establish himself as one of the living legends of country music.

    "A magical listening experience for a Waylon fan!"

    As a Waylon fan I can't think of a better way to experience his story than through his own voice. It was magical!

    "Great memories!"

    As young newlyweds we used to go to JD's and listen to the music of Waylon and the Waylors. This thoughtful autobiography read by old Waylon himself is enjoyable and entertaining.
