Black Country Rock and Cracker Barrel are proud to present a brand new Waylon Jennings CD that will be exclusively available in all Cracker Barrel stores and on their website beginning April 27th which is this upcoming Monday! Some stores already have it on their shelves — so call your local CB to find out!
“Live in Concert” is a collection of live tracks that span Waylon’s entire discography. This diverse CD release include hits like “Rainy Day Woman” and “Luckenbach, TX” alongside a duet of “Suspicious Minds” with Jessi Colter, as well as deep cuts from Jennings’ 1995 release, “Right for the Time.” Waylon’s banter in between songs is worth the price of the CD alone!

Paste Magazine published an article today featuring Shooter Jennings talking about Waylon, Mr. Belding, his label, and their upcoming Record Store Day Projects. An excerpt:
“Shooter Jennings prides himself on creating the unexpected. As the only son of Waylon Jennings and Jessi Colter, he’s dabbled in everything from southern rock ’n’ roll to outlaw country to traditional country and even psych-rock. Jennings joined his father’s former band, Waymore’s Outlaws, for a recent sold-out show in Baltimore. Their 40-minute set included everything from classic Waylon to classic Shooter to an enchanting cover of the Ramones’ “She Talks to Rainbows.” “You know, I haven’t sold out shows like this for years,” Jennings said backstage after the show. “We’d sell out one here or there, but we have no idea why that is happening now.” Jennings isn’t touring as much these days, which may have something to do with the spike in ticket sales. If you’re hoping to catch him live soon, it’s best not to dawdle.
Jennings took some time out of his schedule to talk with Paste about Nine Inch Nails, working with Dennis Haskins and his releases for Record Store Day on April 18.
Paste: Tell me a little about your work as a producer. What drew you to that?
Shooter Jennings: My dream was always to be on the production side of things. Even as a little kid when my dad would bring me to the studio, I always loved that. ”
