Waylon Jennings and the Kentucky Wildcats
Back in time in 1988, Waylon Jennings, as well as his wife Jessi Colter and son Shooter Jennings, who was 9 years old at the time, invited some pretty cool guests to their home. Those guests were the Kentucky Wildcats basketball team. They were visiting Nashville to take on Vanderbilt University. What did they have for dinner? Well ribs covered in Waylon Jennings west Texas style bbq sauce of course. They also had a special cake done up and you can see it in the video from the Eddie Sutton Show.
To this day, Shooter Jennings has been a fan of the University of Kentucky Wildcats. He is known to visit the area as Judd Films have filmed several of his videos in and around Lexington. He also produced Lexington, Ky natives, Fifth on the Floor, album, “Ashes and Angels.”
