Shadow of the Gallows. It was changed after a Baptist preacher visited his parents and congratulated his mother for naming him after the Wayland Baptist University in Plainview, Texas. Lorene Jennings, who had been unaware of the college, changed the spelling to Waylon.
Jennings later expressed in his autobiography, "I didn't like Waylon. It sounded corny and hillbilly, but it's been good to me, and I'm pretty well at peace with it right now. After working as a laborer on the Bitner farm, Jennings's father moved the family to Littlefield and established a retail creamery.
When Jennings was eight, his mother taught him to play guitar with the tune "Thirty Pieces of Silver". Jennings used to practice with his relatives' instruments until his mother bought him a used Stella guitar, and later ordered a Harmony Patrician. Beginning with performing at family gatherings, Jennings played his first public concert at the Youth Center with Anthony Bonanno, followed by appearances at the local Jaycees and Lions Clubs. He won a talent show at Channel 13 , in Lubbock, singing " Hey Joe ".
He later made frequent performances at the Palace Theater in Littlefield, during local talent night. Owner J. McShan, along with Emil Macha, recorded Jennings's performance. McShan liked his style and hired him for a weekly minute program.
Following this successful introduction, Jennings formed his own band. He asked Macha to play bass for him and gathered other friends and acquaintances to form The Texas Longhorns. The style of the band, a mixture of Country and Western and Bluegrass music , was often not well received. After several disciplinary infractions 16 year-old tenth-grader Jennings was convinced to drop out of high school by the superintendent.
Upon leaving school, he worked for his father in the family store, also taking temporary jobs. Jennings felt that music, his favorite activity, would turn into his career.
Tired of the owner, Jennings quit after a minor driving accident. During this time he met Buddy Holly at a Lubbock restaurant. The owner reprimanded him each time he aired such recordings, and after playing two Richard records in a row Jennings was fired. Corbin was impressed with his voice, and decided to visit Jennings at the station after hearing him sing a jingle to the tune of Hank Snow's " I'm Moving On ".
They changed the format of the station to country, becoming the main competition of KDAV. The Corbins hired Jennings as the station's first DJ. Jennings produced commercials and created jingles with the rest of the DJs.
As their popularity increased, the DJs made public appearances. Jennings's events included live performances. During one performance, Buddy's father, L. Holley, approached them with his son's latest record and requested them to play it at the station. Holly took Jennings as his first artist. He outfitted him with new clothes, and worked with him to improve his image. Before the tour, Holly vacationed with his wife in Lubbock and visited Jennings's radio station in December Jennings stayed at Holly's apartment by Washington Square Park prior to a meeting scheduled at the headquarters of the General Artists Corporation , that organized the tour.
The amount of travel created logistical problems, as the distance between venues had not been considered when scheduling each performance. Adding to the problem, the unheated tour buses twice broke down in freezing weather, leading to drummer Carl Bunch being hospitalized for frostbite on his toes. Holly made the decision to find another means of transportation.
Following the Clear Lake show which ended around midnight , Allsup lost a coin toss and gave up his seat on the charter plane to Ritchie Valens , while Jennings voluntarily gave up his seat to J. Richardson, known as The Big Bopper , who was suffering from the flu and complaining about how cold and uncomfortable the tour bus was for a man of his size. When Holly learned that his bandmates had given up their seats on the plane and had chosen to take the bus rather than fly, a friendly banter between Holly and Jennings ensued, and it would come back to haunt Jennings for decades to follow: Holly jokingly told Jennings, "Well, I hope your ol' bus freezes up!
Later that morning, Jennings's family heard on the radio that "Buddy Holly and his band had been killed. Then, he returned to Lubbock. In the early s, Jennings wrote and recorded "The Stage Stars in Heaven ", a tribute to Valens, the Big Bopper and Holly, as well as Eddie Cochran , a young musician who died in a road accident a year after the plane crash. For decades afterward, Jennings repeatedly admitted that he felt responsible for the crash that killed Holly.
This sense of guilt precipitated bouts of substance abuse through much of Jennings's career. Deeply affected by the death of Holly, Jennings's performance at the station worsened. He left the station after he was denied a raise, and later worked briefly for the competition, KDAV. Due to his father-in-law's illness, Jennings had to shuttle between Arizona and Texas.
Jennings also played during the intermission at drive-in theaters and in bars. Musil, called JD's. Musil engaged Jennings as his main artist  and designed the club around his act. In , Jennings signed a recording contract with Trend Records ,  and experienced moderate success with his single, "Another Blue Day".
The singles were released between April and October After copies were sold at the club another were pressed by the Sounds label. During an interview, Jennings remarked that the song was a "pretty good example" of the influence of his work with Buddy Holly and rockabilly music. During this time, Jennings rented an apartment in Nashville with singer Johnny Cash. After paying for the accommodation and travel expenditures, Jennings was frequently forced to request advances from the agency or RCA Victor to make the next venue.
While playing days on the road, Jennings's debt increased, and along with it his consumption of amphetamine. He believed himself to be trapped on the circuit. In , Jennings released Ladies Love Outlaws. The single that headlined the album became a hit for Jennings, and was his first approach to outlaw country.
The music style publicized as " Countrypolitan " was characterized by orchestral arrangements and the absence of most traditional country music instruments. The producers did not let Jennings play his own guitar or select material to record. In an interview Jennings recalled the restrictions of the Nashville establishment: "They wouldn't let you do anything.
