Country legend WAYLON JENNINGS continues to make history as his "Theme from The Dukes of Hazzard (Good Ol' Boys)" becomes the RIAA's first-ever Platinum-certified Country MASTERTONE. This is not the first time WAYLON has been the first to cross the million mark -- the album he made in 1976, "Wanted! The Outlaws," with WILLIE NELSON, JESSI COLTER and TOMPALL GLASER, was the first ever RIAA-certified Platinum Country album.
SONY BMG/NASHVILLE Chairman JOE GALANTE said, “For a man whose music and character literally helped redefine country music, it’s an incredible testament to the enduring nature of his talent that 31 years after he shared in the first Platinum country album, one of his hits delivers another million-selling first for a whole new generation.”
