Highwayman: Waylon Jennings, Willie Nelson, Johnny Cash, Kris Kristofferson is the debut studio album by American country supergroup The Highwaymen, originally released in May 1985 via Columbia Records.

The Highwaymen were a country music supergroup composed of four of the biggest outlaw country artists: Johnny Cash, Waylon Jennings, Willie Nelson, and Kris Kristofferson. The band was active as a group between 1985 and 1995.

In 1984, Glen Campbell first played the song "Highwayman" for Johnny Cash. The song was written by long time Campbell collaborator Jimmy Webb, and originally released by Campbell in 1979.

The four members were all together in Switzerland doing a television special and decided that they should do a project together. While the four were recording their first album, Marty Stuart again played the song “Highwayman” for Cash, saying it would be perfect for them—four verses, four souls, and four of them.

Campbell then played the song again, this time to all four of them, and the quartet had the name for their new super-group "The Highwaymen", the name of their first album, Highwayman, and the name of their first single. The four thought it was a perfect name for them because they were always on the road and all four had the image of being outlaws in country music.

Both the album and the single eventually reached the top spot in the country music charts.

Their remake of Guy Clark's "Desperados Waiting for a Train" reached the Top 20. (Clark is frequently referred to as "The Fifth Highwayman".) The four original members starred together in the 1986 film "Stagecoach".

Check out the tracks:  Highwayman”; “Desperados Waiting For A Train”; “Against The Wind”; andBig River”.
