At the age of just 12-years-old, Waylon Arnold Jennings began his road to fame. He scored a time spot on a Texas radio station, formed a band, and the rest is history! As a young boy chasing his dreams, nothing could get in his way. Waylon Jennings didn't know it back then, but he would become what some fans consider, a Country music pioneer.

Born on June 15, 1937 to mother, Lorene and father, William Jennings. Waylon was a mixture of Irish, Dutch and Cherokee, with the original name of "Wayland", meaning land by the highway. Later on his name was changed to Waylon, but not by choice. In his autobiography, Waylon stated, "I didn't like Waylon. It sounded corny and hillbilly, but it's been good to me, and I'm pretty well at peace with it right now."

Jennings got his first big break in 1958, after some time creating jingles for the radio station he was approached to tour with Buddy Holly and began his own climb to fame. His powerful voice, edgy sound, and no nonsense personality made him a star. 

During his career Jennings has 54 albums chart, with 11 of them reaching #1. He also influenced many Country music artists, including Travis Tritt and Hank Williams Jr. 

He will forever remain a Country music idol, and is missed dearly! In 2002, Jennings passed away in his sleep due to complications with diabetes. However, his music and legacy continue to move forward and influence many. 

Take look at some of Waylon's best songs and performances below!
