Waymore’s Outlaws are currently presenting a show called "Runnin’ With Ol’ Waylon," featuring the stories and music of Waylon Jennings' band The Waylors. It is a living documentary, giving their audience a unique opportunity to experience the memories and music from the players who lived it. Some have said it’s like having your own backstage pass.
Waymore's Outlaws today is a reunion of five Waylors: Richie Albright on drums, Jerry Bridges on bass, Fred Newell on pedal steel, Barny and Carter Robertson, keyboards and vocals. Covering Waylon's vocals and guitar is Tommy Townsend who, early in his career, was mentored by Waylon.In the mid-70's Waylon Jennings and The Waylors were a pivotal force that knocked Nashville and country music back on it’s heels. By Waylon standing up for the right to create music in his own way, a movement was born called Outlaw Music.
A few years after his passing in 2002, Waylors' band members, Richie Albright, Jerry Bridges, and Fred Newell formed Waymore's Outlaws to honor Waylon and to keep his music alive. A year later they invited Tommy Townsend to join the band on lead guitar and vocals.
In the years that followed they recorded three albums, toured the nation, Canada, and Europe with their outlaw spirit playing Waylon's songs and one of theirs now and then. In 2014 they began a four year touring engagement with Waylon and Jessi Colter’s son, Shooter Jennings, opening his shows and backing him on stage.
In January of this 2018, Barny and Carter Robertson, who became Waylors in 1975, joined Waymore’s Outlaws.
Collectively, The Waylors', Albright, Bridges, both Robertson’s and Newell, played on the recordings of Waylon's mega hits such as I Ain't Living Long Like This, Theme Song from the Dukes of Hazzard (Good Ol' Boys), Luckenbach Tx (Back To The Basics Of Love) and Rainy Day Woman, as well as countless other gold and platinum hits.
