As young newlyweds we used to go to JD's and listen to the music of Waylon and the Waylors. This thoughtful autobiography read by old Waylon himself is enjoyable and entertaining.

On the plus side, and it is a huge plus, this is Waylon narrating his own book. From his childhood in West Texas to a career as one of the greatest musical artists of his generation, Waylon weaves a magical narrative. Waylon was most influenced by the legendary Buddy Holly (Waylon gave up his seat on the ill-fated plane to the Big Bopper) and staying true to what Buddy inculcated in him was a big part of the impetus behind his resistance to Nashville's conformist mindset. It's all here--the music (book starts with Waylon singing his hit song "I've Always Been Crazy"), the marriages, tragedies, triumphs. Waylon is brutally honest about the negative impact that the years of amphetamine and cocaine abuse did to his health, relationships, and finances, but he is refreshingly aware enough to take responsibility for it. The only downside of the book is that it is an abridged version of the book but it is good nonetheless. That is the only reason I didn't give this book five stars straight across!
