Waylon Jennings, Buck Owens and K.T. Oslin Honored by Texas Heritage Songwriters’ Hall of Fame
They join previous honorees Kris Kristofferson, Townes Van Zandt, Willie Nelson and Lyle Lovett.
Texans are a mighty proud bunch, and on June 22, the Texas Heritage Songwriters’ Hall of Fame shows how proud they are of their songwriting community when they honor Waylon Jennings, Buck Owens and K.T. Oslin.
Among Waylon's songwriting credits are “Good-Hearted Woman,” “Are You Sure Hank Done It This Way” and “Theme from The Dukes of Hazzard (Good Ol' Boys).” Buck is known for writing such hits as “Foolin’ Around,” “I’ve Got a Tiger by the Tail,” and “Waitin’ in Your Welfare Line.” K.T.’s songwriting credits include “80’s Ladies,” “Do Ya” and “I’ll Always Come Back.”
The Hall of Fame awards show annually welcomes new inductees whose “sound and personalities are as large as the state itself.” The event, which takes place at the Moody Theater in downtown Austin, features performances from past inductees as well as other well-known songwriters and recording artists, including Toby Keith, Jack Ingram, Larry Gatlin and Ronnie Dunn.
Previously announced members included Kris Kristofferson, Townes Van Zandt, Willie Nelson and Lyle Lovett.
