In 1981, Leo Eaton invited country music star Waylon Jennings to join his camera crew and more than 20 cowboys for the spring roundup at the 06 Ranch in West Texas, a 150-square mile ranch that still did roundup in the old way by camping out for more than a week on the range. In the musical documentary MY HEROES HAVE ALWAYS BEEN COWBOYS, Waylon reveals his love and respect for true cowboy culture by working alongside the 06 cowboys during the day and joining them around the campfire and chuck wagon at night to sing many of his best-known songs, including his classic ‘My Heroes Have Always Been Cowboys’. The documentary was first shown on the Nashville Network in 1983 when TV Guide called it “a small classic, a beautiful piece of genuine Americana”.
