Family and friends come together to honor the late, great country music star Waylon Jennings on a CD that comes out tomorrow. The artists, including a reunited Alabama, younger stars like Jamey Johnson, Jennings' widow Jessi Colter, and their son, Shooter, revisit some of Jennings' classic songs.

The CD is called "Waylon: The Music Inside: A Collaboration Dedicated To Waylon Jennings." We speak to Jessi Colter and the CD's producer, Witt Stewart.
