Who’s ready for another contest?  I know I am.

This February will mark the ten-year anniversary of the death of the legendary Waylon Jennings.  On February 7, the new Waylon Jennings tribute album The Music Inside:  A Collaboration Dedicated to Waylon Jennings, Volume II will be released.  The eleven-track collection includes contributions from the likes of Dierks Bentley, Hank Williams, Jr., Montgomery Gentry, and Jewel, among others, plus Jennings’ widow Jessi Colter and son Shooter.

The 1-to-10 Country Music Review has two copies on reserve to ship off to two readers, courtesy of Girilla Marketing.  To enter to win, simply leave a comment below answering this one question:  What made Waylon Jennings a great artist?  Or if that question is a bit too heavy, I’d be glad to hear what your favorite Jennings songs are instead.

The deadline for eligible comment submission Saturday, February 4.  Comments must include a valid email address so that I can contact you if you win (Your email address will not be shared publicly).  In the case of users posting multiple comments, only the first comment will be considered eligible.  Two winners will be chosen with the aid of a random number generator.  After the deadline, I will post a comment announcing the winners.

    I can still remember when he first came out…he sang from the bottom of his boots to the sweat that always seemed to be on his brow. I feel, there were times in his history, that even he admits without Jessie in his life, he would never have been the person he became. I am glad he settled down and lived to be a grandparent…one of the greatest blessing on the earth.

    It’s easy for artists to get a little success under their belt and begin to sing what they think we want to hear, as they play to an image. Waylon, on the other hand sang what he felt and what he wanted to sing. In short, Waylon was authentic in his music. That authenticity is always going to resonate with fans. We want to hear something that we believe is real, not something with a manufactured feel. He sang about all kinds of topics, but when you listen to them, you don’t get the feeling that he just made music for the sake of fulfilling a contract with your record executives.

    Since we’ve only gotten two entries, it looks like Sharon and Collin are both getting CDs. I’ll be contacting you for your addresses soon.

    The first time I heard Waylon sing Wille Nelson’s composition, “It’s Not Supposed to be that way,”
    a little frisson went up my spine. I was so moved by the depth of emotion in his voice. And what a voice! I think what made Waylon great was the emotion and also the tenderness in voice. He could take a song and make it his, put that indelible stamp on it. And his slow, deep guitar licks (so effective on the above song, coupled with that driving rhythm, so evident on songs like “Waymore’s Blues,” further set him apart. Even the humor, the “ribbit, ribbets” he loved to inject in his songs and his offhand “Hoss” remarks, endeared him to his fans. I think he felt the music deeply, that he loved what he was doing, and that he cared so very much about his music. He was a sensitive, soulful man. I miss him greatly.
