Biography

There are two artists that shared this name

1. The Highwaymen were a supergroup comprising of four musicians well-known for their pioneering influence on the subgenre: Johnny Cash, Waylon Jennings, Willie Nelson and Kris Kristofferson.

2. The Highwaymen were a collegiate folk group from the 1960s who had a significant impact on the folk scene of that time and remain famous for the song “Michael” and “Cotton Fields.” Formed in 1958 while the band members were at college, the group broke up in 1964 after releasing eight albums and ten singles. They reunited in 1987, minus Chan Daniels (who died in 1975), for a concert for their 25th college reunion. Between then and 2009, the band has performed ten to twelve concerts a year. Today, two of the original five members (Steve Butts and Steve Trott) are still alive, with Dave Fisher dying on May 7, 2010, Gil Robbins (father of actor Tim Robbins) dying on April 5, 2011, and Bob Burnett dying on December 8, 2011.

    Along with The Travelling Wilburys... a case of too many cooks spoil the soup. Each artist represented on their own are excellent and great... but together it just comes across as a mish mash of good ideas gone bad. Would rather be listening to any of the people on here on their own,, than endure more than a song or 2 of Highwaymen. Good, but not great by any means.
