Lonesome, On'ry, and Mean: A Tribute to Waylon Jennings (2003)

Details Release Date: Apr 15, 2003; Lead Performance: Various Artists

Jennings' death at 64 in 2002 closed the casket on a Johnny Cash-like resurgence. That's a shame: Songs like ''Are You Sure Hank Done It This Way'' shivved establishment Nashville and made Jennings the outlaw prophet of alt-country. He bowed to Austin, not Music City, and this loving tribute teems withTexans (Guy Clark, Alejandro Escovedo). Perfect for melancholy night drives, although Norah Jones' ''Wurlitzer Prize'' will make you so weepy, you may crash your pickup.
