Waylon Jennings had his first recording session arranged for him by Buddy Holly, and later Holly hired him to play bass. Waylon was to fly on the plane that crashed and killed Holly, but he gave up his seat for J. P. Richardson. Jennings had numerous jobs as radio DJs during the late 50s and early 60s. When he signed with RCA, he also gained creative control, and that produced a number of hit albums. His biggest single was, “Luckenbach Texas”. He was a member of, “The Highwaymen” along with Johnny Cash and Kris Kristofferson. The hit TV show, “The Dukes of Hazzard”features Jennings’ voice.
