Excellent movie and singing with Waylon Jennings staring.
7 November 2013 | by robinhooddSee all my reviews

I saw this movie the first time in Lai Khe, South Vietnam. Yes we did get to see movies over there. Of all the movies we received, this was my favorite. I liked the music in the movie so much that I bought the album, wore it out and bought another. Now I can't find the movie or album anywhere in the states. Big disappointment. I would love to have a copy of both. Nashville Rebel and Green River are my favorites of all his songs. If you are a Waylon Jennings I would recommend trying to find this movie and watching it. He actually has short hair and no beard. He was so good in this movie I don't know why he didn't make another.
