Scatter Records and theBig Machine Label Group are pleased to announce the February 8th release of a star-studded tribute compilation honoring one of the greatest Country music icons of our time – Waylon Jennings.
The three volume celebration, The Music Inside: A Collaboration Dedicated to Waylon Jennings, features some of the biggest stars of Country music -from legends Kris Kristofferson and Alabama to hit makers Jamey Johnson and Trace Adkins to critically-acclaimed Patty Griffin and Sunny Sweeney – performing and paying tribute to Jennings’ most-celebrated songs. (The official Vol. I track listing is below.)
Every artist on the project possesses either a personal or professional connection to the Texas-born Jennings, and no one more so than Country star and Jennings’ widow Jessi Colter, who performs a heartfelt duet of “Good Hearted Woman” with Sunny Sweeney. Their son Shooter Jennings also pays tribute with “Belle of the Ball,” appearing on Vol. I. In addition, every performance on the compilation earned Jessi and Shooter’s blessing.
“There have been several tribute albums made in my father’s honor, all of which were great tributes to his legacy. But this one has been a true passion project for a lot of artists and friends who truly wanted to remember and give back to the wonderful man he was,” says Shooter. “In the years since my dad passed away, I’ve grown as an artist and I feel this is the first time I’ve been able to give back truly to the man who inspired, influenced and nurtured me and my musical passion.”
