Book Launch: Brian Fairbanks - Willie, Waylon, and the Boys: How Nashville Outsiders Changed Country Music Forever

The Garden District Book Shop is thrilled to announce that author Brian Fairbanks here for the launch of his new book Willie, Waylon, and the Boys: How Nashville Outsiders Changed Country Music Forever. 

Entry to the event is free and open to the public but the shop encourages interested parties to RSVP to ensure entry and reserve a copy of the book, as space is limited. Additional copies will be available to purchase.

The evening features live music by Conor Donohue, Glizzie’s hot dogs and happy hour offerings. Fairbanks will then sit down to regale guests with the history of Willie, Waylon and the Boys before answering guest’s questions. Afterward, he will be available to personalize copies of his book. 

Willie, Waylon and the Boys is the tragic and inspiring story of the leaders of Outlaw country and their influence on today’s Alt-County and Americana superstars, tracing a path from Waylon Jennings’ survival on the Day the Music Died through to the Highwaymen and on to the current creative and commercial explosion of Chris Stapleton, Brandi Carlile, Zach Bryan, Jason Isbell, and the Highwomen.

Fairbanks draws a line from Buddy Holly through the Outlaw stars of the 60s and 70s, all the way to the country headliners and more diverse, up-and-coming Nashville rebels of today, bringing the reader deep into the worlds of not only Cash, Nelson, Kristofferson, and Jennings but artists like Chris Stapleton, Simpson, Bingham, and Isbell, stadium-filling masters whose stories have not been told in book form, as well as new, diverse artists like the Highwomen, Brittney Spencer, and Allison Russell. Thought-provoking and meticulously researched, Willie, Waylon, and the Boys ultimately shows how a twenty-one-year-old bass-playing plane crash survivor helped changed the course of American music.
