I keep coming back to ol’ Tompall Glaser, the Nebraska kid with the sweet harmonizing voice who hit the charts with his brothers before turning into a Nashville mogul, thanks to a little sing-song ditty (“Gentle on My Mind”) that they happened to publish and stars just couldn’t stop singing. Waylon’s best pal during the Outlaw heyday until they had a fight and stopped talking. Now…where’d he go? Get back out here and sing us another round.
In the meantime, check out “Gideon Bible,” from his 1973 solo album Charlie.
