Waylon Jennings’ Final Recordings Slated for Oct. 21

The late Waylon Jennings’ final recordings will be released on Oct. 21 on Vagrant Records, backed by son Shooter Jennings and his band, the .357s. Waylon approached Shooter about making the album in 1995, but the final recording sessions took place in 2006 after Shooter moved the original tapes to ProTools. “The tracks I originally made were a little young and messy, but they were still really wild,” the younger Jennings says. “Now I feel like I’ve been given the chance to take my years of experience and match them to his.” The project’s eight songs include “Ain’t Livin’ Long Like This,” “Lonesome, On’ry and Mean,” “Waymore’s Blues” and “Are You Ready for the Country?” Waylon Jennings died in 2002.
