WAYLON JENNINGS & THE WAYMORE BLUES BAND
"Never Say Die: The Final Concert Film"

DVD + 2-CD (Columbia/Legacy)

Arrives in stores July 24, 2007

OVERVIEW:

Waylon Jennings, his health failing, played his last major concert at Nashville's historic Ryman Auditorium in January of 2000.

Backed by the all-star Waymore Blues Band, whom he called "the band I always wanted", his afflictions evaporated on the Ryman stage.

Joined by wife Jessi Colter and guests John Anderson, Travis Tritt and Montgomery Gentry, he delivered a moving, exhilarating performance revisiting some of his greatest songs. While the concert was filmed and recorded, only a truncated single CD appeared at the time.

Now, for the first time, the complete show is available on 2 CDs and DVD!!

It's Waylon's triumphant last hurrah, done -as always- on his terms.

To borrow from what Chet Flippo once wrote:

Once upon a time in country music, there were giants walking the land....

Waylon Jennings WAS the tallest of them all.
