Prominent Australian country music archivist and former Nu Country FM Long In The Saddle show host Barbara Dowling soon returns to the Texas birthplace of late country music legend Waylon Jennings.

The pioneer CMAA judge and Wandong Country Music festival pioneer will spend July 4 in Littlefield near Lubbock.

But the revered expert on the famed singing actor, singing spouse Jessi Colter and recording artist son Shooter is on a mission.

She wants to complete an exhaustive list of recorded songs that feature the name or nickname of Waylon who died from diabetes related illness at 64 on February 13, 2002.

The archivist has not listed acclaimed Waylon tribute discs Lonesome, Orn'ry & Mean and I've Always Been Crazy that received wide exposure last decade.

Red River Tribute - a live double compilation CD featuring mainly Texas artists plus Shooter Jennings - also appeared in 2003 with proceeds going to The American Diabetes Foundation.

Shady Creek Outlaws also released Waylon Grass - a Bluegrass Tribute to Waylon Jennings - in 2006.

Now Dierks Bentley has recorded the Steve Young penned Waylon song Lonesome, Orn'ry & Mean for a 2010 Jennings tribute disc.

Meanwhile archivist Dowling wants to add to her list of songs about Waylon so she can present it to his surviving kinfolk in West Texas.

Here is her list.
