ing place over the next few weeks including CMT Insider, GAC On The Streets, GAC Headline Country and The Daily Buzz. Montgomery Gentry and Colter each perform a classic Waylon Jennings hit on the newly released tribute album, the second volume in the three-part series dedicated to one of country music’s greatest outlaws. Additional artists include Dierks Bentley, Hank Williams, Jr., Justin Moore, Josh Thompson, Jack Ingram, Jewel, Colt Ford, Pat Green and Wyatt McCubbin. The artists involved in the making of Volume II couldn’t be more thrilled to be a part of the project and have expressed their deep adoration for Jennings and the impact he had on the industry. “The thing about him (Waylon), or me… we’re not going to put ourselves in a pigeonhole,” says Hank Williams, Jr. “We’re not going to say, we’re country. We’re not going to do that. We play music.” Josh Thompson notes, “Waylon was the reason I picked up a guitar in the first place. Loving that music drove me to play and that’s why it was important for me to be on this record.” “I don’t know why certain people can just see what’s needed and do it,” says Jessi Colter on the legacy of her late husband. “Those people are the starters, the leaders, the movers-and-shakers. He was a leader.”
