Editors’ Notes

This 2008 collection of “Outlaw Country” features everyone from its founders, Waylon Jennings and Willie Nelson, to Southern Rockers such as the Allman Brothers, Lynyrd Skynyrd, the Marshall Tucker Band and Molly Hatchet, and even Waylon’s son, Shooter Jennings, who’s emerging as an alt-country star, and mainstream traditionalist Gretchen Wilson. At this juncture thirty years since Willie and Waylon turned off the Nashville assembly line and refused its tendency towards ‘pop’ sweetenings such as strings and excessive backing vocals, “Outlaw Country” has become a genre more defined by the characters making the music than an actual sound. Roughly defined it’s tough guitars, real fiddles, barroom pianos, and driving beats that stake their territory in these well-known favorites, from the Allmans’ “Ramblin’ Man” and Johnny Paycheck’s “Take This Job and Shove It” to Nelson’s “Whiskey River” and Johnny Cash’s live take on “Cocaine Blues.” David Allan Coe made a career of being an un-PC, unrepentant dirty talker. Only Tanya Tucker and Travis Tritt seem ill-cast.

BIGFAN

IM a huge fan of old country grew up listenin to david allan coe hank johnny.... this album rocks!!

On Target and Still Tracking

The music on this album with a couple of exceptions takes me back to a time of cool evening bonfires, good Tennesse Whiskey and the shining faces of several young country ladies. It was some of the best times of my life. The music is from the heart and it tells stories that we can all relate too. You can't go wrong with these atists as they were on the cutting edge of their times.

just aint right.

I like to think Southern Rock and Outlaw Country are two different things. Different sound but good either way. I will never be able to figure out why Gretchen Wilson is on here considering she isnt Southern Rock or Outlaw Country. She is just part of the Redneck movement and will fade away. Oh Yea! That already happened.
