and the
GEORGIA HIGHWAYMEN

ABOUT THE GEORGIA HIGHWAYMEN

The Georgia Highwaymen is a tribute to Willie Nelson, Johnny Cash, Waylon Jennings, Kris Kristofferson, and includes the artistry of Terry Johnson on lead vocal as Shotgun Willie, Thayer Naples on Lead Guitar, Gar Hogan on Rhythm Guitar and background vocals,  Jim Hampton on bass, Brett Mitchell on keys, and George Sandler on Drums.  All are accomplished musicians.  

 

Georgia Highwaymen honors Outlaw Country music,  a subgenre of American country music created by a small group of iconoclastic artists active in the 1970s and early 1980s. Known collectively as the Outlaw Movement, they fought for and won their creative freedom outside of the Nashville establishment that dictated the sound of most country music of the era. Willie NelsonWaylon JenningsJohnny CashKris Kristofferson, and David Allan Coe were among the movement's most commercially successful members.

The movement began as a reaction to the slick production and limiting structures of the Nashville sound developed by record producers like Chet Atkins. The musicians of the  Outlaw Movement were able to secure their own recording rights, and began the trend of bucking the "Nashville sound"
