365. Waylon Jennings

As one of the principal figures of the Outlaw Country movement, Waylon Jennings took Country back to its Honky Tonk Roots. It was in the 70’s that Jennings produced his best work and developed a huge and devoted fan base. His music inspired a lot of Southern Rock, and is considered an icon among Alternative Country circles. Jennings is already in the Country Music Hall of Fame, and it is not impossible for him to enter the Rock and Roll version as well.         The Bullet Points:   Eligible Since: 1989   Country of Origin: U.S.A.
