‘Highwayman’ is the first studio album released by country supergroup The Highwaymen, comprising Kris Kristofferson, Johnny Cash, Waylon Jennings and Willie Nelson.
These men are legendary country music singers on their own, and when you combine them, you get something very special, a supergroup. The songs are mostly covers, drawn from a diverse selection of songwriters including Bob Seger (“Against The Wind”), Woody Guthrie (“Deportee”), Jimmy Webb (“Highwaymen”), Ed Bruce (“Last Cowboy Song”) and Cindy Walker (“Jim I Wore A Tie Today”). There are also a couple of Johnny Cash oldies, “Big River” and “Committed To Parkview.” A true masterpiece.
