As one of the principal figures of the Outlaw Country movement, Waylon Jennings took Country back to its Honky Tonk Roots. It was in the 70’s that Jennings produced his best work and developed a huge and devoted fan base. His music inspired a lot of Southern Rock, and is considered an icon among Alternative Country circles. Jennings is already in the Country Music Hall of Fame, and it is not impossible for him to enter the Rock and Roll version as well.

your write up did not mention that Waylon was Buddy Holly's bass player on this final tour, and Waylon gave up his seat on Buddy's plane to The Big Bopper.. thus becoming the man who survived the Day the Music Died
