Waymoreâ€™s Outlaws: Runninâ€™ with Olâ€™ Waylon
Sat, Jun 16 8:00 pm
In the mid-70's Waylon Jennings and The Waylors were a pivotal force that knocked Nashville and country music back on their heels with their own way of doing things, standing up for their rights to create their own music, a movement they called Outlaw music. A few years after the passing of Waylon in 2002, his Waylors' band members, Richie Albright, Jerry Bridges, and Fred Newell, formed Waymore's Outlaws to honor Waylon and to keep his music alive. A year later they invited Tommy Townsend to join their Outlaw band on lead guitar and vocals. In the years that followed they recorded three albums, toured the nation, Canada, and Europe with their outlaw spirit playing Waylon's songs and one of theirs now and then. In January 2014 they began a four year touring engagement with Waylon and Jessi's son, Shooter Jennings, opening his shows and backing him on stage. In January of this year, Barny and Carter Robertson, who became Waylors in 1975, joined Waymore’s Outlaws.
