Nashville Rebel is Waylon Jennings' third album for RCA Victor. Released in 1966, it is the soundtrack to the Jay Sheridan film of the same name. Nashville Rebel includes a cover of The Beatles' "Norwegian Wood" from Rubber Soul (1965). This song was not featured in the movie.

Shooter Jennings performed, in portrayal of his father, "I'm a Long Way from Home" for the soundtrack to the Johnny Cash biopic Walk the Line in 2005.

Audio issues[edit]

When the album was released, it was billed as "Electronic Stereo" (a remixing technique given to mono recordings in order to create a false illusion of stereo) although all of the songs on side one are indeed true stereo.

"Norwegian Wood" wasn't issued in true stereo until 1999 but the five movie instrumental tracks (tracks 8-12) have never been issued in true stereo anywhere.
