1035x1143-Highwaymen_Live_AmericanOutlaws_FINAL

Folks yesterday night I released a mega article of 2016 deaths in Country Music, and it contained one of the Legends that wrote one of the songs that made these men famous as a band..Guy Clark. The song “Desperados Waiting For A Train” is on this boxed set on CD 2 and it also included album number 1 that was self titled and produced by another person on the list and that was Lincoln Moman.

In 1985 the four of these Legends began an iconic journey through the trails of the world as quite possibly one of Country Music’s most popular super groups The Highwaymen. They were actors each on their own rights and together they re did John Wayne’s Stagecoach.

PBS premieres a new installment of its American Masters documentary series, The Highwaymen: Friends Till the End, and Legacy teams up with Columbia Records to release a four-disc CD/DVD package, The Highwaymen Live – American Outlaws. The live box set hits stores May 20th, while the documentary premieres a week later on May 27th.

The concert video has them in their prime as they promote their second album from 1990 and features every one of them in the spotlight along with some Legendary musicians like Robby Turner on steel. This band was kind of like the Eagles where they each perform their own well known hits and also their own signature songs.
