Luke Bryan recently did an interview where he dissed Outlaw Country. Mainly the three main members of it (Waylon, Willie and Merle) and their lifestyles.. Here is his statement,
“I think that people who want Merle, Willie and Waylon just need to buy Merle, Willie and Waylon. … I’m not an outlaw country singer. I don’t do cocaine and run around. So I’m not going to sing outlaw country.
“I like to hunt, fish, ride around on my farm, build a big bonfire and drink some beers—and that’s what I sing about,” Bryan said. “It’s what I know. I don’t know about laying in the gutter, strung out on drugs. I don’t really want to do that.”
Obviously one would expect a rebuttal from one of the Outlaws and we got it. Kathy Jennings is married to Buddy, Waylon’s son. She didn’t just sit back and let Waylon’s memory get disrespected. Not only did she release a statement but she also did a YouTube video just so everyone would know how to interpret the statement! Now that’s Outlaw Country!
“To Luke Bryan:
I hope your family members are proud of you for using your WORLDWIDE platform to take the time to disrespect my father-in-law. You have managed to PROVE to the world your true self.
Albeit that Waylon’s drug use is well documented and something he overcame, I assure you, he was never “laying in a gutter.” At the peak of his career and drug abuse, he was making history and setting records. He single handedly paved the way for you and everyone else to make music the way the artist wanted to make it. I’m not willing to waste my time to debate your “music” and / or the fact you have zillions of fans – I will however, not sit back and be quiet when you have so blatantly disrespected Waylon.
I recall the time I was at the Grand Ole Opry to visit with Andy Griggs, you were making your debut appearance. My friend that was with us had just seen your video. As we stood at the side of the stage, Jeannie [Seely] was talking to us, and you walked over to introduce yourself to her and told her how much you admired her. She in turn introduced you to myself and my husband. I almost got a cavity because of the sweetness of the words coming out of your mouth – you told us Waylon was one of your musical heroes. You went on and on and on.
This is not about music, outlaw country, whatever – it’s about DISRESPECT.
You are a platinum, disrespecting, no singing, whining, grasping for media attention, a–hole. Use your platform for something good, instead of bashing the LEGENDS that came before you.”
Here is the video! Be warned, she drops the F-Bomb!
