Description
When "outlaw" country music star Waylon Jennings died in 2002, he left behind a collection of vocal/guitar tracks that remained unproduced until his wife and longtime bandmates brought them to fruition. Among the most poignant tracks are "I Do Believe" (about a man grappling with faith), a remake of 1977's "Belle of the Ball" (which his wife, Jessi Colter, said was the favorite song he ever wrote), Tony Joe White's "Goin' Down Rockin'," and Willie Nelson's "Sad Songs and Waltzes."

"The album sounds like classic Jennings, with a voice that's sometimes a little rough, a little ragged, but never false."—NPR

"Raw songs delivered in a weary but still magnificent baritone."—Rolling Stone

"There never was an artist like Waylon Jennings. It's such a joy to hear his honest voice, his integrity, and his quintessential badassness on this new record."—Rosanne Cash

"He left behind one of country music's most important legacies…. He was a voracious listener who wasn't afraid to incorporate folk or rock or pop into his voluminous repertoire. His unwillingness to bend to the will of record labels in Nashville was country music's highest paying gamble. He held out for a better contract, then turned around and released Wanted: The Outlaws, the first platinum-selling country album. Albums like Honky Tonk Heroes and Lonesome, On'ry and Mean helped redefine country music, moving it from regional art form to pop culture phenomenon."—APWorldstream
