My question is a simple one: when outlaw country stars like Waylon Jennings and Johnny Cash die, which heaven do they go to? Do they go to Rock and Roll Heaven, with Jimi Hendrix and Jim Morrison? Or is there a separate Country Music Heaven, presided over by Hank Williams? Or is there a specific Outlaw Country Heaven? Or do they go to Cowboy Heaven, even though they were not technically cowboys?
How do the angels sort out who goes to which heaven, and what do they do with the tricky cases, like Merle Haggard? He’s not dead yet, but it’s going to come up. Does he go to Outlaw Country Heaven or regular Country Music Heaven? And what about the rennaisance men like Kris Kristofferson? Is there a Rennaisance Man Heaven, with Leonardo da Vinci as the high angel?
Or do the outlaws just, ride between the heavens without anybody’s permission, like my brother claims?
