The first recording we have of Waylon will be available at record stores on this Saturday, April 18th for Record Store Day!
Yes! You can buy a real vinyl from a real person in a real store!
This record features Waylon when he was only 18 years old. He sounds so young and he always knew how to bring people together.
Shooter Jennings Official and I are very proud to release this historical recording. Please share!
From Rolling Stone:
In 1955, an 18-year-old Waylon Jennings hosted a radio show on KZZN, a small station in his Littlefield, Texas, hometown. For nearly 35 minutes, the future Outlaw Country progenitor performed songs and traded stories with a group of local musicians in a loose guitar pull. Remarkably, the program was recorded on reel-to-reel and put into storage — in the ultra-secure location of a box shoved underneath the bed of one of Jennings' siblings. The tape would eventually land in the hands of Shooter Jennings, Waylon's son with wife Jessi Colter. On Saturday, Jennings and his Black Country Rock label will release the full program — titled Waylon 55 Live — on vinyl as part of this year's Record Store Day.
