Saguaro Road Records have set a September 11th released date for Goin' Down Rockin': The Last Recordings of Waylon Jennings.

The Recorded shortly before his death in 2002, the songs have been met with bittersweet excitement and warmly embraced by those who knew him best.

Rosanne Cash marveled, "There was never an artist like Waylon Jennings. It's such a joy to hear his honest voice, his integrity and his quintessential badassness on this new record. What a great thing for posterity that these recordings exist and were finished by Robby Turner with such care and honor."

Kris Kristofferson, who toured alongside Jennings in the Highwaymen, added, "The pure beauty of Waylon's voice - unlike any other I ever heard - has the powerful honesty and heart of the man himself. Like his outlaw companions Willie Nelson and Johnny Cash, they broke the mold when they made him. I do believe 'I Do Believe' is the only one of these I've heard before, and I could listen to it forever."

Jennings wrote 11 of the 12 songs on Goin' Down Rockin', 11 of which have never been released before. He recorded them with his accompanist Robby Turner, but died before they could be completed. A decade later, Turner painstakingly finished the tracks to Jennings' specifications, working with musicians such as Reggie Young, Richie Albright and tour mate Tony Joe White.
