Waylon Jennings was born in 1937. During his youth he became a friend of Buddy Holly and Holly produced his first single, "Jole Blon," in 1958. Jennings was on the same tour as Buddy when the latter was killed in a plane crash—Jennings had planned to travel in the plane with Buddy, but allowed the Big Bopper (J.P. Richardson) to take his seat. Jennings returned to radio presenting and playing as a session musician in the 1960s, but returned to big-time performing in the 1970s as part of The Outlaws movement in Country music and became a very big star. Waylon Jennings died in February 2002. The title of Jennings' original was "You Ask me To."
