Drifting off

…And now for something completely different for the weekend. I just discovered gay country artist Waylon Payne. Waylon Payne is the son of country singer Sammi Smith ("Help Me Make It Through the Night") and longtime Willie Nelson guitarist Jody Payne, as well as the godson and namesake of Waylon Jennings.



I just ordered his cd The Drifter you can pick it up pretty cheap on ebay if you look. It’s worth a listen in its bluesy alt-country groove.

If you saw Walk the Line he played Jerry Lee Lewis.




I admit I was first attracted to him for that stare but listening to snippets from his website http://www.waylonpayne.com/main.html there is real talent there.


Check it out.

I'm not big on country music, but I've got to give him kudos for trying to make it out of the closet in such a non-accepting industry.

That tattoo looks like 'BTH' to me, but I could be mistaken. Perhaps it means 'Bring Them Home', or he's just a real big fan of the Business, Transportation and Housing Agency.

I have no idea what BTH stands for but I'd have to put that tattoo in the category of drunk thoughts that seemed like a good idea at the time.

Terri said...

Ahhh.....I guess that does look like a "T".. not a "W"

I agree w/ Brian....


It could be his boyfriends initials...
