Country Music’s Original Supergroup, The Highwaymen, Sing Their Song “Highwaymen”

Perfect Posters and Pics,

It’s safe to say that the country music supergroup, The Highwaymen, may have been one of the greatest things to ever happen to country music. Joining forces in 1985, the group took the industry by storm as their combined talents stunned fans across the world.

The Making Of The Band

Originally, the group didn’t have an official name even though they’d released two albums already. Later finding inspiration from the 1977 Jimmy Webb song, “Highwayman,” the four talents found their golden title. Their first album became a #1 platinum-selling album, while the song “Highwayman” hit #1 on the Billboard Hot Country Songs chart for twenty consecutive weeks.

So it was no surprise that any time these four got together – fans were in for a treat. As Johnny Cash, Willie Nelson, Waylon Jennings, and Kris Kristofferson took the stage together for one rockin’ performance, the crowd went wild.  This performance must just be one of their greatest of all time!

On-Stage Chemistry

Before the group started their performance at the 1993 Farm Aid concert, Johnny took the stage and said a few kind words about his fellow group members and friends.

“It’s great to be here, thank you. We’ve had a pretty good run, these guys and me. These are the three fellas, we’ve been across the country and around the world together.” Cash gushed, “And there’s still no one I’d rather introduce than my musical comrades, Kris Kristofferson, Waylon Jennings and the baby-faced kid from Texas, named Willie Nelson. They call us The Highwaymen.”

It’s clear that The Highwaymen made more than just music but also long-lasting friendships and endless memories.

Singing “Highwayman,” the legends took over the venue with their incredible talent and unique vocals. Every single one of them brought their own beauty to the performance – but you should see for yourself.
