Waylon Jennings, a former Lubbock dj who played bass for Buddy Holly,
was one of the original Nashville "outlaws". After a decade of shallow
country-pop hits, Jennings began producing and playing in a more virulent style
(reminiscent of both honky-tonk and rock'n'roll)
on Honky Tonk Heroes (1973), mostly written by Billy Joe Shaver.
His classics include:
Good Hearted Woman (1972),
You Ask Me To (1973),
My Heroes Have Always Been Cowboys (1976),
Luchenbach Texas (1977),
Red Headed Stranger (1978),
Ed Bruce's Mamas Don't Let Your Babies Grow Up to Be Cowboys (1978),
Bob McDill's Amanda (1979).
