The Drifter (2004)

Details Release Date: Jun 22, 2004; Lead Performance: Waylon Payne

Being Waylon Jennings' godson gives this aspiring neo-outlaw automatic cred, but Waylon Payne seems hamstrung by country mythology on The Drifter. Though he tries on ''Ain't Got No Match,'' he can't out-party Hank III. And covering mediocre Shelby Lynne (''Jesus on a Greyhound'') is no way to out-Christian Johnny Cash.
