WHEN I FIRST STARTED PERFORMING; I KNEW THAT FROM "DAY ONE" THE AUDIENCE COMES FIRST...  WHEN YOU CAN TRULY "ENTERTAIN" AN AUDIENCE; YOU HAVE A "HAPPY" AUDIENCE...THEY WILL GO HOME FEELING SATISFIED FROM YOUR PERFORMANCE.  THEY WILL BUY YOUR CDs...AND THEY WILL WANT A RETURN ENGAGEMENT.  THEY BECOME "YOUR FRIENDS"...  I PUT A LOT OF THOUGHT INTO WHAT MAKES AN AUDIENCE HAPPY.  IT TAKES FAR MORE THAN HAVING A GREAT VOICE AND MASTERING A MUSICAL INSTRUMENT.  YOU HAVE TO REACH OUT AND MAKE EVERY INDIVIDUAL IN THE AUDIENCE THINK THAT YOU'RE SINGING JUST FOR THEM...  YOUR SONG MUST MAKE THEM HAPPY, MAKE THEM SAD, BUT ABOVE ALL; IT MUST MAKE THEM "FEEL GOOD".

A LARGE PART OF THIS "FEEL GOOD", IS PLAYING AND SINGING "THEIR SONG".  JUST SO HAPPENS; THE WAYLON JENNINGS SONGS THAT THEY HEARD ON THE RADIO MADE THEM "FEEL GOOD".  I FOUND OUT EARLY ON THAT I COULD SING HIS SONGS.   AND... I HAVE BEEN TOLD I BEAR A STRONG RESEMBLANCE TO THE MAN.   THAT, IN ITSELF; HAS BROUGHT ON "MORE THAN SEVERAL" INSTANCES OF "MISTAKEN IDENTITY"... (CHICAGO, OMAHA, DENVER, DALLAS, CHEYENNE, NASHVILLE, AND A "LOT" MORE) THERE ARE SOME INTERESTING STORIES INVOLVED HERE.  REMIND ME TO TELL YOU SOMETIME.  BUT WAIT UNTIL THE "STATUTE OF LIMITATIONS" RUNS OUT...   FOLKS IN THE AUDIENCE LIKED IT.  AND THAT'S WHAT EVERY ENTERTAINER SHOULD NEVER FORGET :  "MAKE YOUR AUDIENCE HAPPY"... 

FOR A LOT OF YEARS;  WAYLON'S SONGS HAVE DONE JUST THAT. 

NOW THAT HE IS GONE; I DO MY BEST TO KEEP HIS MEMORY ALIVE; SIMPLY BY SINGING HIS SONG...  WITH EVERY YEAR GONE BY, WITH EVERY TOWN I'M IN, WITH EVERY AUDIENCE I SING TO; I PROUDLY SING THE SONGS THAT MADE SO MANY PEOPLE LOVE WAYLON JENNINGS.  WE MISS YOU, "HOSS".
