Final Waylon Jennings Recordings to be Released

New music will be released from outlaw country legend Waylon Jennings on September 11, 2012. Ten years after his 2002 passing, Goin’ Down Rockin’: The Last Recordings of Waylon Jennings will be available on Saguaro Road Records.

The tracks were recorded during the last few years before his death, originally with Jennings and his guitar accompanied by longtime bassist Robby Turner.

Turner returned to finish the recordings in Jennings’ honor with musicians who had long worked with the country legend, including Reggie Young, Richie Albright and tourmate Tony Joe White.

Jennings wrote 11 of the 12 songs, which make personal statements about his life. In addition to his own songs, the album includes White’s “Goin’ Down Rockin’” with White making a guest appearance.

“Waylon knows he’s surrounded by friends and all that hear this will feel as if they know Waylon in all his authenticity,” explains his widow, country singer Jessi Colter.

Of his 54 albums, 11 hit No. 1 on the country charts. Jennings charted and more than 100 singles and took 16 to the No. 1 position. He was inducted into the Country Music Hall of Fame in 2001.
