In 1975 Waylon Jennings topped the charts with “Are You Sure Hank Done It This Way” — an Outlaw’s response to critics saying his music was nothing like the traditional sound of Hank Williams, Sr. What’s funny is, today’s country artists are often criticized because their music is nothing like the traditional sound of Waylon Jennings.
With tomorrow’s premiere of GAC’s The Music Inside – Waylon Jennings: Breaking the Myth, we thought we’d post this classic clip of Waylon singing “Are You Sure Hank Done It This Way.” You’ll notice Waylon’s sharing the stage with Johnny Cash, Willie Nelson and Kris Kristofferson. The legendary foursome toured and recorded off and on as The Highwaymen from 1985-1995.
