Cover picture for the articleOn her forthcoming album, Shannon McNally shares her perspective on the many moods of Waylon Jennings. McNally enlisted Jessi Colter, Buddy Miller, Rodney Crowell, Lukas Nelson and others to evoke the spirit of the country icon on The Waylon Sessions, which will be released by Blue Rose Music and Compass Records on May 28 (and is now available for pre-order). She reveals, “I have always loved his defiantly existential but immediately accessible common man’s music and how it boogies.” McNally, who covers 11 tunes on the record, both compositions written by Jennings and others long associated with him, adds, “My goal wasn’t to force anything onto the music that wasn’t there already. There’s a feminine perspective hidden somewhere inside each of these songs. My job was to find a way to tap into that and draw it out.”
