Overview
Equal parts outlaw, renegade, and legend, 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. It chronicles all the chapters of Jennings s incredible life, including his beginnings as a dirt-poor son of a farm laborer; his role as Buddy Holly s protege; his influential friendships with such luminaries as Johnny Cash, Willie Nelson, and George Jones; the stunning success ushered in by his platinum 1976 anthology album, "Wanted: The Outlaws";" "the drug habit that nearly destroyed him; andhis three failed marriages and the journey that lead him to Jessi Colter, the woman who would become his wife for 25 years. 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."
