Today In 1985 The Highwaymen Were Number One
On Aug. 17, 1985, Waylon Jennings, Willie Nelson, Kris Kristofferson and Johnny Cash topped the charts with 'Highwaymen'......
The song was written by country songwriter Jimmy Webb who originally recorded it, and was later cut by Glen Campbell in 1979. When The Highwaymen’s version of the song was released, not only did it shoot to number one, but it also won a Grammy for Best Country Song in 1986.
