I Don't Think Hank Done It This Way

This is brilliant piece of outlaw country from Waylon Jennings, not a genre I usually dip too far into. Are You Sure Hank Done It This Way? is a gimlet-eyed view of touring and 'making it', coupled with some short shrift to the Nashville country establishment and their comparisons with Hank Williams, country music's first bad-boy, outlaw superstar. If you only need one Waylon Jennings song on your hard-drive, how about this one?

It forms part of an interesting double act with Kris Kristofferson's 'If You Don't Like Hank Williams' - that song even name checks Jennings, as a "table-thumping smash".
