20 Years Ago Today – Waylon Jennings Plays Nashville’s Ryman Auditorium For Final Time

20 years ago today (1/5/00), country legend Waylon Jennings played the Ryman Auditorium in Nashville for the last time as he kicked off the first of two shows at the legendary venue he frequented many times over the course of his 50 plus year career. Waylon was backed by the all-star Waymore Blues Band, whom Jennings called “the band I always wanted,” and joined onstage by his wife Jessi Colter, and by guests John Anderson, Travis Tritt, and Montgomery Gentry. Waylon passed away in February of 2002 from diabetic complications at the age of 64.
