Jackin' Around Podcast- Episode 2 - Jack Ingram Interviews Waylon Payne

Jack Ingram has released ten studio albums, six live projects, and charted 12 singles on the Billboard Hot Country Charts, including a #1 hit, during his career. He recently won an ACM for Best Country Song in 2018 as co-writer of Miranda Lambert's "Tin Man," which was also nominated for a Grammy and a CMA award. He also has hosted my Golf & Guitars Music Festival over the years, helping raise nearly a million and a half dollars to help veterans, disadvantaged youth and those with disabilities in Northern California. For that, I'll be forever grateful. This is is his new Jackin' Around Podcast.

Jack Ingram’s guest, Waylon Payne, for Ep #2 comes from country music royalty.  His namesake & Godfather is Waylon Jennings.  His father, Jody Payne, played guitar for Willie Nelson for 35 years, and his mother, Grammy award winner Sammie Smith, was one of the first outlaw country music singers best known for her 1971 crossover hit, “Help me Make it Through the Night.”.  He has recorded two records; the "The Drifter", produced by Keith Gattis (2004) and the critically-acclaimed "The Harlot, the Queer, the Pusher & Me", produced by Frank Liddell (2020).  Waylon has also acted in nearly a dozen movies including the Johnny Cash movie, as Jerry Lee Lewis in “Walk the Line”.
