TBT: Happy Birthday Waylon Jennings!

Today would've been Waylon Jennings' 80th birthday.

I've seen Willie Nelson and Kris Kristofferson live. I saw Merle Haggard just months before his death. What I would give to say that I was able to see Waylon Jennings take the stage and to hear Are You Sure Hank Done It This Way, Good Hearted Woman, Luckenbach, Texas (Back to the Basics of Love), or Mammas Don't Let Your Babies Grow Up to Be Cowboys live.

Waylon Jennings is one of my greatest inspirations for my own songwriting. He didn't give a damn what anyone told him about his music, which is the true meaning of an Outlaw. Sure, he had his history of vices, but that's not what defined his music career. If you don't listen to this legend, I can't help you.

Happy Birthday, Waylon.
