I was thinking about that song a few days ago. Waylon was anti-Nashville Establishment. He did not like the politics of the Nashville recording industry. That is one of the reasons he & a few others were known as outlaws. He did run afoul of the law sometimes. Hiis voice was unique not mistaken for other singers. His recording of MacArthur's Park was a departure from tradtional country music. Another was 'Rose In Paradise'.
