Music for Monday: Amanda by Waylon Jennings

I am amazed at the way the sound of a voice can move me and stop me dead in my tracks. Today I heard the magnificent country voice of Waylon Jennings. It instantly brought me back 35 years ago when I heard a collection of his greatest hits. I fell in love with his voice immediately. I carefully recorded the album to a cassette tape so I could listen to it when I drove anywhere. Amanda, written by Bob McDill, was my favorite from the album. His version was a number one song on the country charts in 1979.

For those unfamiliar with his music, he was the voice of the Ballad of the Dukes of Hazzard.
