Airs Friday, November 8 at 11 p.m. This radio documentary pays tribute to American legend Waylon Jennings, tells the story behind his final concert at Nashville's Ryman Theatre, and features many musical highlights of that historic night. By 2000, Waylon Jennings had over 40 years of experience on stage. He started as the bassist for Buddy Holly in the late 1950s, and over the years, Waylon continually grew as a musician and bandleader. Health problems took their toll on Waylon in the 1990s. He suffered from emphysema, diabetes and had a mild stroke. Despite all that, Waylon wanted nothing more than to get back on stage. In early 2000, he put together a band with many of his favorite musicians and called it, "The Waymore Blues Band." At the time, Waylon may not have known that it would be one of his last concerts. He may not have even cared. His only concern was to pull out all the stops and make this just as memorable as every other time he took the stage.
