"Welcome, Waylon Jennings" is the second episode of the seventh season of The Dukes Of Hazzard.
After six seasons of complaining in song that they "keep showing my hands and not my face on TV," Waylon Jennings finally appears on The Dukes of Hazzard, on camera. An old friend of the Duke family, Waylon brings his tour bus and traveling museum to Hazzard County. Years ago, before his first professional gig, someone stole Waylon Jennings's guitar. With no money to replace it, he would have missed his opportunity, but then a stranger loaned him the money to replace it. That stranger was Jesse Duke. They have been friends ever since. Waylon enters Hazzard, traveling in a very valuable mobile country music history museum to use as a charity exhibit. This museum, considering its value, is a very desirable item, for a thief. And Boss Hogg is always willing do almost anything for money. Boss hires two crooks named Buddy (Stephen Lee) and Jeb (Terrence Evans) to steal the museum and hold it for ransom.
