Waylon Jennings – Jessi Coulter Works for His Legacy
The year was 1976. The country was obessed with the Bicentennial.
But Country fans were also obsessed with a group of outlaws. When Waylon Jennings, Jessi Coulter, Willie Nelson and Tompall Glaser got together, no one knew that their album, Wanted! The Outlaws would be the first country album ever to sell one million copies.
We can never speak for the late Waylon Jennings, of course. But you have to think he’d be just fine with the collaborative effort of some excellent artists as they produce Waylon: The Music Inside Vol. II. The list of artists performing on the disc include Jack Ingram, Pat Green, Dierks Bentley, Montgomery Gentry and Hank Williams Jr., Waylon passed away in 2002.
According to his widow, the first volume was a big seller and she sees the same kind of success for this one.
This second CD is actually part of a trilogy that is foreseen by Waylon’s fans and family. No word yet on who is being lined up for the third disc.
Jessi reveals that when her husband came to the end of his life, it wasn’t her place to question it but rather to just cherish their time together and the legacy he left.
Waylon died almost 10 years ago. He had suffered from Diabetes for years and the complications from that is what eventually led to his death.
‘Waylon: The Music Inside Vol. II is in stores now.
