Editorial Reviews

Review

"Waylon: Tales of My Outlaw Dad is a quick, fun read that offers the reader an intimate look inside a world that doesn't exist anymore."―VICE

"In his revealing new book, Waylon Jennings' son Terry discusses his father's legacy and what he really thought of the 'outlaw country' movement."
Wide Open Country

"[A] tender but lucid memoir that doesn't sugarcoat Waylon's raucous life"
Garden & Gun

"Waylon Jennings and I first met in the mid '60s backstage at JD's in Phoenix. We would go on to record duets, write songs, cut records and tour together for over three decades. We had our differences, but our friendship always endured. I considered Waylon one of my best friends. Packed with funny, insightful tales of life on the road, this book is a terrific tribute, from a son to his father. A father who happens to be one of Texas and Nashville's greatest musicians. Every country music fan, Outlaw or otherwise, should have it on their shelf."
Willie Nelson

"I'm so excited about Terry's new book. Waylon Jennings has always been one of my favorite singers of all time. I loved his voice. He was completely different from anybody else. And I always wanted to either do a whole album with him or at least a duet song; but I never got the chance. That will always be one of my great regrets. Waylon was a wonderful human being as well. He reminded me very much of my own people in his tenderness, kindness, his understanding and his personality. I think of him often."
Dolly Parton

"I've played country music my whole life, and it's the evolutions (sometimes revolutions) that have ensured that it stays ever changing, ever growing, and constantly relevant. When I first heard Waylon sing the opening verse of 'Are You Sure Hank Done It This Way' it was like a mini sermon. It's also the first country song I played for my wife, and she was hooked immediately. As his son Terry wonderfully captures in this book, Waylon was an outsider trying to figure out how to be in a town like Nashville and stay true to his music and who he is. And, boy, can I relate to that. Waylon had a power, a gravitas to his music that hit me in a religious way. It was music where I could smell the beer soaked carpet, see the neon, feel the stomping and sliding of boots on hardwood floors, and almost taste the air thick with smoke, sex and whiskey. It's authentic, it's raw, and it's unapologetic in every way...and for a kid growing up on the other side of the world who never got to see Waylon 'live' or meet him, I feel like I've done both. God bless you Waylon ... and please know I'm taking great care of your leather-bound 1950 Broadcaster."
Keith Urban

5.0 out of 5 stars The Real Deal!
By A. Ayala on April 19, 2016
This is a GREAT book. I hate spoilers (even tiny ones) but I can say it has been one heck of an emotional roller coaster ride. I've laughed, I've sighed, wanted to punch something (or someone), and I've cried. It's INTENSE and I can't walk away from it. Who knew the son is as great of a storyteller as his dad was a singer/songwriter. Dee

5.0 out of 5 stars Are you ready for the Country?
By Missyhoward on April 3, 2017
I was introduced to Waylon Jennings by my uncles, they were some cool cats, used to take me and my brothers out fishing, and well I could write a book on that one.
I grew up listening to Waylon loving every minute of it.
I've always been curious about what happens on the road, what goes into productions like a traveling band.
This book takes you on every side road and highway there was in the 70's through 2000.
I enjoyed learning more about one of my heroes, and being a father, the relationship between a father and a son.
Terry has done an outstanding job in delivering in both of these areas and so much more.
This book is a must read for every real country fan and father out there, as Terry quoted Buffet" some of its magic, and some of its tragic, but I had a good life all the way"!
Thank you Terry for showing us the inside of the Waylon machine, Godspeed brother!
