Overview

Release Date:11/11/2013;Notes:Honky Tonk Heroes is a country music album by Waylon Jennings, released in 1973 on RCA Victor. With the exception of "We Had It All", all of the songs on the album were written or co-written by Billy Joe Shaver. The album is considered an important piece in the development of the outlaw subgenre in country music as it helped revive the honky tonk music of Nashville by injecting a rock and roll attitude. Jennings had invited the then unknown Shaver to Nashville to write the songs for Jennings' next album after hearing him sing "Willy the Wandering Gypsy and Me" just before the 1972 Dripping Springs Reunion. When Shaver arrived in Nashville he spent six months chasing up Jennings before again convincing him to make an album of his songs. Jennings had renegotiated his contract with RCA Records, who gave him creative control over his work to avoid losing him to Atlantic Records. So when his usual producer, Chet Atkins, was reluctant to release a record consisting of songs written by an unknown songwriter, Jennings replaced him with Tompall Glaser and the two co-produced the album at Glaser's Hillbilly Central Studio in Nashville. Jennings replaced the typical Nashville session musicians with his own band, The Waylors. The executives of RCA Records were reluctant to release the album, and delayed it until July 1973. It had a mixed reception by the critics on release, though has gained in status and is now regarded as an important album in outlaw county, and is listed in Robert Dimery's 1001 Albums You Must Hear Before You Die. It reached number 14 in Billboard's Top Country albums chart. The singles "You Ask Me To" and "We Had It All" did well, reaching number 8 and 28, respectively.;Track List:1.
