REMEMBERING WAYLON JENNINGS

Today marks the one-year anniversary of the death of Country Music Hall of Fame legend Waylon Jennings.

Jennings died in his home in Phoenix, Arizona at 64 years of age. He had battled health problems for years, and had to have his left foot amputated due to complications from diabetes.

Jennings and longtime friend Willie Nelson defined the "Country Outlaw" movement of the mid 1970s, as well as mainstream success with hits such as "Good Hearted Woman," "Mama's Don't Let Your Babies Grow Up To Be Cowboys," and "Luckenbach, Texas."
