A mighty guitar pull, hoss. Filmed in Nashville for television in 1984, we find Waylon Jennings playing host to bevy of living legends in celebration of the late Sue Brewer. Decades long de facto den mother, and champion of upcoming Music City singer-songwriters, Brewer’s 18th Avenue apartment served as a makeshift clubhouse / after-hours performance space for the scene’s burgeoning community including Kris Kristofferson, Waylon Jennings, Roger Miller, Harlan Howard, and Willie Nelson. To be the fly on those walls.
Commemorating the newly formed Sue Brewer Fund, the circle Jennings rounded up for the special included Mickey Newbury, Willie Nelson, Webb Pierce, Kris Kristofferson, Merle Kilgore, Hank Williams Jr., George Jones, Faron Young, Roger Miller, and more. And special it is.
