Movie Lounge: Waylon Jennings and Friends
Filed under: Movie Lounge | Posted by:

Here is one of the episodes of the 8-episode television special, Waylon Jennings and Friends. This particular segment features Waylon leading a gang of some of the most talented country music singers and songwriters of all time in a loving tribute to Sue Brewer, the country music patron who used to host guitar pulls at her house, aka the”Boar’s Nest” (read more about Sue here).

Watch what Waylon calls “an organized riot”, with the musicians sitting around, sharing stories (like the time Willie Nelson frenchkissed Faron Young) and performing hit after hit including: Kris Kristofferson’s “Sunday Mornin’ Comin’ Down”, Webb Pierce’s “There Stands the Glass”, Mack Vickery’s “Honky Tonk Wine”, Willie Nelson’s “I Gotta Get Drunk”,  Roger Miller’s “In The Summertime”, Faron Young and Willie Nelson’s “Hello Walls”, Buck Trent’s “Banjo Buck”, Little Jimmy Dickens’  “Take Me As I Am (Or Let Me Go)”, Harlan Howard’s “Busted”, Mickey Newbury’s “Sweet Memories”, Merle Kilgore’s “She Went a Little Bit Farther”, Hank WIlliams, Jr.’s “All My Rowdy Friends Have Settled Down”, Mac Wiseman’s “Jimmy Brown The Newsboy” and Waylon Jennings’ “Nashville Bum”. The amount of talent in that one room is absolutely astonishing and it is seriously NOT TO BE MISSED.
