Flashback to 2002: Where Were You When Waylon Died
It is always fun to look back at the "This Day in History" sites. One of my favorites to visit is This Day in Country Music. I decide to check out some of the things that happened on this day in Country Music History this afternoon and one of them I remember vividly. It is truly one of those I remember exactly where I was moments.
February 13th 2002, I had been out shopping for my self purchased Valentine's Day gift, Wagner cast iron pans (insert laugh track here), and when I walked in the door my significant other at the time was sitting in the living room glued to the TV with a video of Waylon Jennings playing. Turns out while I was at Walmart the world found out that Waylon had passed away in his sleep from complications due to a long battle with diabetes. Funny how you can't remember a lot of stuff been then something are so clear.
Waylon had a lot of country music history to his name including a series of duet albums with Willie Nelson in the late 1970s. He was the reason we have the "Theme From The Dukes Of Hazzard", and he was a member of The Highwaymen with Willie Nelson, Johnny Cash, and Kris Kristofferson.
