Outlaw country music icon Waylon Jennings’ son, Terry, provides an intimate and revealing look at the life and times of his father, on and off the stage.

Born when Waylon was only nineteen years old, Terry grew up more like Waylon’s brother. On the road together, they toured with legends such as Johnny Cash, Willie Nelson, and Kris Kristofferson, leading a reckless lifestyle centered around music, hard drugs, and women. Critical acclaim, bestselling albums, and sold-out tours were at times overshadowed by the darker aspects of fame, from drug use to womanizing to debt and depression.

Debunking myths and sharing stories never before told, Waylon is a loving and strikingly honest portrait of a father by his son, one that will resonate for generations of fans.

Quotes & Awards

  • I've played country music my whole life, and it's the evolutions (sometimes revolutions) that have ensured that it stays ever changing, ever growing, and constantly relevant. When I first heard Waylon sing the opening verse of 'Are You Sure Hank Done It This Way' it was like a mini sermon. It's also the first country song I played for my wife, and she was hooked immediately. As his son Terry wonderfully captures in this book, Waylon was an outsider trying to figure out how to be in a town like Nashville and stay true to his music and who he is. And, boy, can I relate to that. Waylon had a power, a gravitas to his music that hit me in a religious way. It was music where I could smell the beer soaked carpet, see the neon, feel the stomping and sliding of boots on hardwood floors, and almost taste the air thick with smoke, sex and whiskey. It's authentic, it's raw, and it's unapologetic in every way...and for a kid growing up on the other side of the world who never got to see Waylon 'live' or meet him, I feel like I've done both. God bless you Waylon ... and please know I'm taking great care of your leather-bound 1950 Broadcaster. Keith Urban
  • In his revealing new book, Waylon Jennings' son Terry discusses his father's legacy and what he really thought of the 'outlaw country' movement. Wide Open Country
  • "Waylon: Tales of My Outlaw Dad is a quick, fun read that offers the reader an intimate look inside a world that doesn't exist anymore. VICE
  • [A] tender but lucid memoir that doesn't sugarcoat Waylon's raucous life Garden & Gun
  • I'm so excited about Terry's new book. Waylon Jennings has always been one of my favorite singers of all time. I loved his voice. He was completely different from anybody else. And I always wanted to either do a whole album with him or at least a duet song; but I never got the chance. That will always be one of my great regrets. Waylon was a wonderful human being as well. He reminded me very much of my own people in his tenderness, kindness, his understanding and his personality. I think of him often. Dolly Parton
  • “Packed with funny, insightful tales of life on the road, this book is a terrific tribute, from a son to his father.”

    Willie Nelson

  • Waylon Jennings and I first met in the mid '60s backstage at JD's in Phoenix. We would go on to record duets, write songs, cut records and tour together for over three decades. We had our differences, but our friendship always endured. I considered Waylon one of my best friends. Packed with funny, insightful tales of life on the road, this book is a terrific tribute, from a son to his father. A father who happens to be one of Texas and Nashville's greatest musicians. Every country music fan, Outlaw or otherwise, should have it on their shelf. Willie Nelson
  • “As his son Terry wonderfully captures in this book, Waylon was an outsider trying to figure out how to be in a town like Nashville and stay true to his music and who he is. And, boy, can I relate to that.”
