Waylon Jennings became a country star doing it Nashville's way. But he became a legend doing things his way. In the early 1970s, his and fellow Texan Willie Nelson's successful fight for creative control of their records launched country's Outlaw movement. From a career that began in 1958 with a single produced by rock icon Buddy Holly until his death in 2002, Waylon created edgy, timeless, straight-talking music like "I'm A Ramblin' Man," "Dreaming My Dreams With You," Luckenbach, Texas (Back To The Basics Of Love)" and "Good Hearted Woman" (with Willie). Nashville Rebel is a comprehensive, compelling 4-CD, 92-track, career-spanning overview beginning with the first Holly-produced single, a tune from his early '60s days in Phoenix, his early RCA hits and all the Outlaw masterpieces. Previously unreleased numbers include a never-heard 1978 duet with longtime pal Johnny Cash. A lavishly-illustrated book packed with rare photos and memorabilia showcases essays from guitarist-songwriter-critic Lenny Kaye (collaborator on Waylon's best-selling autobiography) and country historian Rich Kienzle.
