    Hank Williams Jr gave Waylon that nickname and it means “Old Number One” in Japanese.

    He gave it to him after the recorded “The Conversation” because it was Waylon’s way of telling Hank it was okay to sing his daddy’s songs. It was at the same time that Waylon took him out on the road with him because Hank Jr was at a low point.

    You can read about it in his biography “Waylon” written with Lenny Kaye

    Johnny Cash just because I think he is better, but I do love Waylon’s work on Mick Jaggers movie New Kelly the old movie not the new one. But my two favorite country singers are Johnny Horton, and David Alan Coe. take care dave

    It was referenced in Kris Kristofferson’s “If You Don’t Like Hank Williams” back in the early 70;s.
