    RIP Jody Payne, longtime guitarist for Willie Nelson. Here’s Jody and Willie singing the Ray Wylie Hubbard penned “Up Against the Wall, Redneck Mother.” 

    Before joining Nelson’s band, the “Family,” Payne also worked with Merle Haggard and was married to singer Sammi Smith for a time in the ’70s. He retired from the Family in 2008.

    Jody Payne, a guitarist who toured with Willie Nelson for more than three decades, has died. He was 77.

    Baldwin County Coroner Stan Zinson says Payne died at 5:12 a.m. Saturday (August 10) at a hospital from cardiac problems. He says Payne got up early in his house in Stapleton, Ala., feeling ill, and his wife called an ambulance. — Billboard

    If it’s the 4th, it must be time for Willie Nelson’s Annual Picnic, which turns 40 this year (even though there haven’t been that many).

    Dave Thomas at the Austin American-Statesman has a fine chronology of the picnic throughout the years.

    Every time that I’d be standing there on stage, at least at some point in the show, I had to just pinch myself to realize that I was really up there on the stage. Every one of these guys was my hero before I even knew them, you know? Because really, the first time I ever heard Waylon [Jennings], I was a janitor at the recording studio at Columbia Recording in Nashville. And I volunteered to do a Saturday [cleaning shift] when Waylon was doing a demo, and I’d never heard anything like him. It was a real eye-opener to find myself on the same stage with these guys. Because Johnny Cash, as human as he is — or was — he was always larger than life. He always felt like something right off of Mount Rushmore.
