A Man Called Hoss is a concept album by Waylon Jennings, released on MCA Records in 1987. It is a quasi-autobiographical record which chronicles Jennings' life and experiences in ten "chapters", each of which corresponds with a single track on the album; the titles of these chapters are: "Childhood", "Texas", "First Love", "Lost Love", "Nashville", "Crazies", "Drugs", "Jessi", "Reflections" and "The Beginning". Each song was written in collaboration with Roger Murrah, who is given credit on the album's cover. "Rough and Rowdy Days" was Jennings' second-to-last top ten single, reaching #6 on the country charts. The album, in turn, peaked at #22.
