Jennings Tribute Album in the Works

RCA Records will release a Waylon Jennings tribute album in February. “It seems fitting that RCA should take the lead here,” says Jennings widow, Jessi Colter, “since [RCA’s] Studio B is where Waylon began the revolution in country music.” Journalist Hazel Smith will serve as executive producer of the project, which will include 16 tracks by artists from a range of musical genres. “He took a stand,” says Smith, “that the established way might not be the right way, and he did it his way.” 04/29/02
