It’s often hard to pinpoint who started a movement. But in every musical offshoot there is inevitably someone who rises to the forefront and whose name becomes synonymous with the new direction. When it comes to the Outlaw Movement, that someone is Waylon Jennings, who was born on June 15, 1937, in Littlefield, Texas, and died on Feb. 12, 2002.
