The group was founded on friendship and honesty, according to Johnny Cash’s son and wife, who witnessed the founding of the country band. Waylon Jenning’s son spoke in an interview about how much they loved each other. The chemistry is evident in their music and on stage in their live performances.

The Highwaymen formed after Johnny Cash talked the other members into joining him on a Christmas special in Switzerland in 1984. After jamming in the hotel and enjoying each other’s musicianship, they decided to continue working together. The rest is country music history, and this clip shows the legends at their finest!
