AllMusic Review by

Outlaw Country pioneer Waylon Jennings started out in music just a few years after hard living caught up to legend Hank Williams in the back of a Cadillac at the age of 29. The influence of the latter on the former was obvious not merely in style, but in the manner in which both vanguards forged rebellious paths. On WAYLON SINGS HANK WILLIAMS, Jennings pays tender tribute to many of the master's classics such as "Jambalaya" and "I'm So Lonesome I Could Cry," along with lesser known tracks like "Why Should We Try Anymore."
