Waymore's Outlaws today is a reunion of five former members of Waylon Jennings recording and touring bands, The Waylors, and Waymore's Blues Band, which features Waylon’s original drummer, longtime friend and right hand man, the legendary Richie Albright, Alabama Music Hall of Fame Award winning bassman Jerry “Jigger” Bridges, the only female member of Waylon’s band during the Outlaw era, artist and vocalist Carter Robertson, Grammy award winning producer Barny Robertson on keyboards, ACM award winning Nashville veteran Fred Newell on steel and guitar. Covering Waylon's vocals and guitar is Tommy Townsend who, early in his career, was mentored by Waylon. Collectively, the band has performed 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 Texas" and "Rainy Day Woman," as well as countless other gold and platinum hits.
"Runnin' with Ol' Waylon" - Music and Memories of Waylon Jennings, is the new tour, presenting a concert experience that chronicles one of the most powerful movements in Country Music history. In the mid-70’s, Waylon Jennings and his band The Waylors were a pivotal force that knocked Nashville and country music back on its heels. By Waylon standing up for the right to create music in his own way, a movement was born called Outlaw Music. This new sound and approach propelled him and other artists like Willie Nelson, and Jessi Colter to a level traditionally known to only rock and pop artists.
Runnin’ With Ol’ Waylon gives the audience a unique opportunity to experience the fascinating personal stories, never before seen video and images as well as great performances of Waylon’s music, all from the band who lived it.
Some have said it’s like having your own backstage pass!
"His very tight back-up band, The Waylors, would open Waylon’s performance with a few tunes that usually featured female vocalist, Carter Robertson. When the band began to play, the crowd’s energy always became electric. They knew Waylon was not far behind. Richie Albright would kick a steady heart beat on his bass drum. The electric bass would then double that rhythm. Thousands of fans would clap hands, cheer, and generally go nuts. It was a musical drug dispensed to ten thousand eager addicts. It was a universal beat called "four on the floor,” and was common throughout country and rock music."
