WILLIE and his manager, MARK ROTHBAUM outside Chips Moman's studio, Nashville - circa 1989


I think this was after a photo session I did with Willie and Waylon in the recording studio.
I had been the art director/designer/photographer for Triad Records (Chip's was a 1/3 partner with Phil Walden and Buddy Killien).
Waylon had just bought a brand new Cadillac and was showing it off and telling how he had paid cash. carried in an attache case by his wife, Jessie
Songwriter, Max D, Barnes was there and the usual crowd that gathers at these sessions.
