Product Description

About the Artist

Waylon Jennings is one of a handful of undeniably towering figures in country music history. A true stylist, he brought the charisma of rock and the purity of blues to bear on his distinctive take on country music. In the process, he earned a place on the Mt. Rushmore of modern country legends and left the generations that followed a standard worth striving for.

An album in tribute to such an artist is a high-wire act, an attempt to re-capture lightning in a bottle. Rarely do such projects do justice to the artists they seek to honor.

Judging from the reaction of those at the heart of The Music Inside, Volume I, the first of a three-CD set, this all-star tribute to Waylon is one of the few. Produced by Witt Stewart and featuring Kris Kristofferson, Jamey Johnson, Trace Adkins and the reunited Alabama, among many others, The Music Inside had the full and enthusiastic involvement of Waylon's widow Jessi Colter and his son Shooter Jennings.

Jessi and Shooter were involved every step of the way, approving the project's tracks and contributing a song each on Volume 1, with another from Shooter and two more from Jessi slated for the upcoming volumes.

"This has been a true passion project for a lot of artists and friends who truly wanted to remember and give back to the wonderful man he was," says Shooter.

A Scatter Records release distributed by the Big Machine Label Group, The Music Inside also features Randy Houser, John Hiatt, Patty Griffin, James Otto, Sunny Sweeney and newcomer Chanel Campbell. The breadth and depth of the talent assembled for the project insured the kind of scope and nuance that marked Waylon's work.

"I told every one of them," says Stewart, "to make the song they were doing their own. I wanted their take on it. As I told Randy, 'We're not doing a Waylon karaoke thing here.'"

The public's first listen to the project is its first single, Alabama's take on the classic, "Are You Sure Hank Done It This Way," a cut that reminds us how much early Alabama drew on the Waylon sound. It also displays the power of Waylon's legacy in its ability to draw the band out of retirement.

The cuts range from Kristofferson and Griffin's haunting "Rose In Paradise" to Otto's raucous "Don't You Think This Outlaw Bit's Done Got Out Of Hand," from Shooter's heartfelt "Belle of the Ball" to Sweeney and Colter's upbeat "Good Hearted Woman."

"We recorded this album live in the studio," says Stewart. "When you get great musicians and a great song together and let an artist interpret it, then you're just trying to catch a moment."

"Reggie, having played with Waylon so much, just brings that spirit of Waylon to it," says Stewart. "He played on every track on Volume I and was really, along with his wife Jenny Lynn Young, the heart and soul of this project.

"There was a Waylon Jennings music room there, with a piano and a recording console, and I got to thinking about a tribute album for Waylon that might raise some money to upgrade the room. That's when I first reached out to Jessi. In one of our first conversations, we agreed that the only rule would be that we had to be open to letting magic happen, and, time after time, it did."

The unity of Waylon's music and vision changed all of modern music for the better and his legacy resonates as strongly as ever among those who make music. From the beginning, Stewart was aiming to reacquaint the listening public with the impact his genius still has among musicians.

"My goal," he says, "was to make a record that would shine a light on Waylon to younger people. I wanted to find people who love and respect his music and we found a lot of them. But above all, I wanted to make something he would like and be proud of and according to the people who knew and loved him best, we accomplished that."

I got this album on pre-order and glad that I did. I love every song on this album. Although Trace Atkins version of "You asked me to" is somewhat on the slower side for my taste, he still does it justice. Randy Houser's "This Time" is awesome, as is Alabama's "Are you sure hank done it this way", John Hiatt's "just to satisfy you", and of course Waylon's own "Go down rockin". The Jessi Colter and Sunny Sweeney collaboration on "good hearted woman" is really cool, being that it's two female leads, rather then two dudes. The duo are very effective. Newcomer Chanel Campbell really took me by surprise. She sounds so much like Jewel. Since I got the CD, I've been listening to it every day in my car. I recommend the CD to every waylon fan. Can't hardly wait for Volume 2 to come out.

Love LOVE this album! I think Waylon would love the way his songs are celebrated by those that love him. Very creative production, an instant classic.

There have been several tribute albums to Waylon Jennings, but none have stood up against his original recordings. This cd is no different, although there are a few bright spots. The first track, "This Time", is one of my favorite Waylon songs, and Jamey Johnson does it justice. Alabama changes a couple of words in "Are You Sure Hank Done It This Way", but the song comes out good, even though I'm not a fan of Alabama. "I'm A Ramblin' Man" is a different arrangement than Waylon's, and it may be my favorite cut on the cd. If someone is going to cover a classic, it should be different from the original. I also like "Good Hearted Woman" by Sunny Sweeny and Jessi Colter. I can't remember a woman covering this song before, and they did an excellent job. Another good one, "Go Down Rockin'", is an old Waylon track with newly recorded music. The rest of the recordings, in my opinion, are mediocre. I'm a big fan of Kristofferson, but even his version of "Rose In Paradise", with Patti Griffin, falls short of my expectations. I don't know why I should listen to covers, when I can listen to the original, and superior, recordings of Waylon.

Makes you feel Waylon is still with us. Great to have Jessie's and Shooter's vocals as
well. What a debt of gratitude we owe Jessica for her dedication to this project. Make sure to check out the first projectissued as well. If you love true country, there is none better.

I'm glad country music is doing this album series, another is to follow on Waylon. I just hope it gets the kids into Waylon! radio doesnt play much Waylon anymore, or any Classic country artist! It's a real shame too, so many GREAT songs just left unheard now. So many of Waylon's songs could be re-released now and be a hit. You hear classic rock on radio but not classic country. Most waylon's songs could fit onto classic rock stations, but people are just too narrow these days.
It was good to see Alabama with the lead off single here and it failed to chart. Aint that something? Alabama one of the greatest country bands of all time, if not the best country band of all time, comes out with it's first single in 8 years and fans today can care less....just sad! Today's country is all LOVE songs, just listen to 2 hours on any country station, it's all LOVE songs every darn one of them! Country music is much more than Love songs! Plus most artists today do not even write their own songs, it's all production line written and produced. WAYLON was an ARTIST! It's a big difference from being a Singer. Young kids of today, I hope you enjoy this album, if you do, go back to WAYLON and hear some music that will send your senses into over drive !

What can I say about Waylon that hasn't been said before. His songs were clean, to the point and mesmerizing. This tribute cd is the best. Looking to buy another cause we are wearing it out.
