When : 5:30-8:30 pm
In the mid 70's Waylon Jennings and his band The Waylors were a pivotal force that knocked Nashville and Country Music back on its boot heels, away from it’s current Nashville studio orchestrated sound and back to it’s honky-tonk roots, all taking place at a studio affectionately called Hillbilly Central. The press quickly dubbed the movement Outlaw Music. It was Waylon and a few other rebels who stood up for their right to create their music on their own terms. For Waylon that meant using his own band in the studio to recreate the live show feel instead of the usual session artists, as Ken Burns describes in his most recent PBS documentary; COUNTRY MUSIC. And now you can see the band that Waylon wanted in the studio on the road with him and that started the OUTLAW movement!
Forty years after it all started, members of the same Waylors band are back on the road as Waymore's Outlaws, re-creating the classic sound they introduced in the Golden Age of Outlaw Country music. Their new tour is called "Runnin' with Ol' Waylon"- The Music and Memories of Waylon Jennings, and it combines all the hit music with memories of their lives in studios and on tours with the Legend himself.
The Waymores include: Richie Albright, Jerry Bridges, Fred Newell, Barney and Carter Robertson, and featuring Tommy Townsend, who was mentored as a youth by Waylon himself, on lead vocals. Besides behind the scenes stories, get ready for the classic hits like Are You Ready for the Country, Luckenbach, Texas, Are You Sure Hank Done It This Way, Theme from Dukes of Hazzard (Good Ol' Boys), Ain't Living Long Like This, Bob Wills Is Still the King, Good Hearted Woman, and many more of Waylon's gold and platinum classics.
Gates open at 5:30pm with dinner available until 7:00pm featuring some of the area’s most popular food trucks. Food is not included in the ticket price. Opening music by Nashville singer/songwriter and local country legend Tom Jackson!
