We love country music. We especially love outlaw country. And among the outlaws there are none better than the Highwaymen.
Though Johnny and Waylon have left us, Kris and Willie are still around. Though unfortunately Willie is going through some health troubles.
We love to celebrate their music because it reminds us of a time when country was real. When it actually reflected the struggles of the everyday man.
Outlaw country is about overcoming darkness and being rebellious. What is more American than that?
Their ballad “Ghost Riders in the Sky” is my favorite of theirs. Check out this rare live version below:
Doesn’t get any better than that.
Just four of the greatest musical outlaws. True American independents who lived life their own powerful ways.
