Visitor Tips and News About Waylon Jennings Museum and Drive-Thru Liquor Store
Waylon Jennings was an old-time rocker who later went on to pioneer "outlaw" country music. He lived a substance-fueled life, so it's fitting that his home town museum is in a liquor store. Actually, "museum" is an exaggeration -- it's just a converted storeroom in an old gas station run by his devoted younger brother, James, who turned the place into a drive-thru package store a couple of years after Waylon died in 2002.
Waylon's gold records and first guitar are now displayed among bottles of beer and booze, and James will sometimes drive fans around in his pickup truck to the Waylon-centric parts of town.[RoadsideAmerica.com Team, 12/16/2009]
