Young Waylon Jennings Performing “Nashville Rebel”

0  comments

We heard of country stars starring in several films and trying out acting for the first time. Many of which like Dolly Parton still appear in a movie or two and has really enjoyed this other kind of storytelling. Other might recall George Strait from the movies Pure Country which debuts George Strait in an acting role and lead actor of a movie. Mostly, country artists would play as a Southern cowboy depicting the southern life but there are those who have channeled a totally different role from their persona. Take, Dolly Parton’s ‘Best Little Whorehouse in Texas.’ Well, Waylon Jennings definitely had his fair share of giving some of his acting abilities for the viewers. Before his appearance on Sesame Street, Jennings did a classic movie called ‘Nashville Rebel.’

 

Nashville Rebel, Waylon Jennings

As per IMDB summary, the 1966 film ‘Nashville Rebel’ follows, ‘Down a dusty road in the deep South, wanders a young man, Arlin Grove, with a guitar and his earthly belongings on his back, just released from the U. A. Army, with no place to go. When a Hootenanny comes to town, it just discovered that Arlin not only has an exciting voice, he also is a gifted guitar player. He is soon appearing on the Grand Ole Opry stage in Nashville.’

The film definitely experienced a modest success and if anyone out there is asking if it had a sequel, this is the one and only Waylon Jennings film available. In his autobiography, Jennings himself said that his performances referring to his acting and singing parts were not as exemplary as it should have been and he even cautioned fans against seeing the film.

On this video below, we see a young Waylon Jennings probably on his way to become a cemented country outlaw with legitimate love for music than this supposed boy next door.

Watch the video and tell us what you think:
