“Are you sure Hank done it that way?”

It seems like long gone are the days of Waylon Jennings, Merle Haggard, Willie Nelson, Jessi Colter and the rest of the Outlaw Country movement, but there are still plenty of great country artists that live under their influence and carry with them the “outlaw spirit.” Artists doing it their own way, achieving success playing by their own rules, but most of all, making great country music.

You could say that they’re doing the way Hank would’ve done it.
