Wanted! The Outlaws is an album by Waylon Jennings, Willie Nelson, Jessi Colter and Tompall Glaser, released in RCA Victor in 1976 and consisting of previously released material. Released to capitalize on the new outlaw country movement, Wanted! The Outlaws earned its place in music history by becoming the first country album to sell a million copies. The original liner notes were written by Chet Flippo, a contributor to Rolling Stone, and offer a short introduction and some praise on each artist involved with the project. The album quickly reached #1 on the country charts and peaked at #10 on the pop charts, with two hit singles, "Suspicious Minds" and "Good Hearted Woman", released; the two peaked at #2 and #1, respectively, both featuring Jennings. Wanted! The Outlaws was reissued on CD on RCA Records in 1996 with ten bonus tracks; only one of these, Steve Earle's "Nowhere Road", had previously been unreleased.
