Rebel • Outlaw • Legend: West Texas Birthday Salute to Waylon Jennings

The Cactus pays tribute to a favorite son of the South Plains....the one and only WAYLON JENNINGS - on the occasion of what would have been his 80th Birthday. We'll remember the early days in Littlefield and Lubbock...chart the course from Clovis to Phoenix....and on to Nashville. We'll revisit and pay tribute to the man through the songs that made him the legendary musician that rose from humble beginnings in the "suburbs of a cotton field." 

Confirmed performers on this truly all-West Texas tribute include:  Kenny Maines, Jerry Brownlow, Mark Paden, Jeff Bailey and Amber Pennington....all backed by the fantastic talents of The Rhythm Machine.

Just a small sampling of the stellar song list we'll feature from the early days in Lubbock and onto Phoenix: "My Baby Walks All Over Me" and "Anita You're Dreaming"; to the early RCA days: "Stop the World and Let Me Off", "Mental Revenge" and "Only Daddy That'll Walk the Line".  We'll chronicle the monster success of the "outlaw" movement: "Honky Tonk Heroes", "I'm A Ramblin' Man", "Rainy Day Woman", "This Time" and many more.  Finally, we'll throw in a few surprises and the stories behind them as we cap the evening with a song from the last recordings.  If you are a Waylon will be thrilled with this heartfelt tribute to the one and only Waylon Jennings.  

Get to the show early so you don't miss the pre-show "bonus" fun as we highlight Waylon's career through vintage clips and interviews.  From legend...this tribute concert will chronicle the songs that carved out his lofty place in country music history. Join us for this very special night as some of the region's great vocalists and pickers join us for this evening of music and memories.  

One night only....don't miss it!  Reserved floor seats only $20; standard balcony $15; limited box seats $40 (included concessions).
