Willie left Nashville for Texas, but returned. Waylon married Jessi and reluctantly gained some Angels as bodyguards. Kris found Hollywood. And Atkins had to step aside for the outlaw path.
I was torn about this book.
On one hand, “Outlaw” is filled with all kinds of names that only the biggest fans will recognize. Yes, the musicians you loved are mentioned in this book, but so are a lot of minor players from thirty and forty years ago.
And yet, I liked this book. Author Streissguth shares tidbits, tales and telling facts about the three main outlaws who started a revolution and changed an American institution.
