  • Jessi Colter- Her Path With Waylon

    10:07

    Legendary singer-songwriter Jessi Colter, sits down with music journalist, Rachel Winston for an intimate discussion of life, the music business, and her love Waylon Jennings. Watch a true love story, and witness the wisdom of a lady who charmed the outlaws and held her own in the outlaw movement. Takes place in the historic RCA Studios in Nashville, TN.

    Read more here:

    Jessi Colter is wise, spiritual, classy, smart, and could give any girl lessons on how to be a woman every man wants. She was the one woman who hung in there with the men during the outlaw movement and was able to stay a lady. When I came to Nashville, I surrounded myself with the same type of musicians and have always looked to her for inspiration.

    Jessi and I had known each other for a few years before we sat down at the historic RCA on Music Row. This famed studio once occupied by Chet Atkins brought back memories for her. Chet played a defining role in Jessi's career, taking her first 5 songs and getting hits with them. He also impacted the career of her late husband, Waylon Jennings. A black and white photo of Waylon and Chet hangs on a nearby wall, giving physical evidence of yesteryear. Waylon was one of the original outlaws who made an imprint on country music and many people's lives. He was definite, trailblazing a path in a creative vortex so powerful it shaped an entire movement. He called Jessi his leaning post and she was with him every step of the way.

    Before meeting Waylon, Jessi was a successful singer-songwriter with a budding career. She first met Waylon at a writing session and the rest of it unfolds like a story that was meant to be told. The daughter of a Pentecostal preacher found herself falling for a man with a righteous calling to music, but demons followed closely along the way. She explained, What he was doing was right in pursuing the music and the passion he had for it and the songs, all that made it easier. It was like Waylon was working all the time, so yes, at first he got into diet pills and then into some other things, nothing like what they call today hard drugs. I think he just wanted to stay up. Jessi said the years just flowed, and if it had just been some guy getting high and doing drugs, she wouldn't have been there. She saw early on that this was a man who had something to offer the world with a heart bigger than his home state of Texas.

    Dealing with sharing Waylon with the world became the next challenge after making the journey to the top in music during that time. As Waylon approached such great success album after album I thought oh gosh, I've dealt with all of the hard times we had when there's no money, we really weren't getting paid and everyone was shafting us. Can I deal with this? Fame came after time, but in those days there were years of playing clubs for no money and gaining lots of real-life writing material along the way. It was the man and the music or the woman and the music, it's their life, she described. Times have changed and picking up a guitar and taking the fast lane to stardom has become common place. Jessi explained that she has no way to equate how it would be to handle this, noting that the sudden echoing of your name is a swim. Swimming in this unknown place has proven to be too much for so many artists experiencing this kind of rise to fame. Keeping your roots solid and having great people around you is the only way Jessi sees a successful ending with this scenario.

    Her smile lights up every room and her angelically startling voice is a cornerstone in country music history. Songs like Im Not Lisa and Storms Never Last could only be written by a woman and have the depth and emotion to stop you in your tracks. If you are looking to go into music, or are in love with an outlaw, this interview is your guide to handle both with grace.

  • THE WILD SIDE OF LIFE ~ Waylon Jennings, Jessie Colter ~ HONKY TONK ANGELS

    2:28

    Enjoy my favorite version of this classic song.....
    Inspired by the song It wasn't God Who Made Honky Tonk Angels Sung by Kitty Wells 1952 same melody. The Wild Side of Life is a song made famous by country music singer Hank Thompson. Originally released in 1952, the song became one of the most popular recordings in the genre's history, spending 15 weeks at No. 1 on the Billboard country charts, solidified Thompson's status as a country music superstar and inspired the answer song, It Wasn't God Who Made Honky Tonk Angels by Kitty Wells.
    There have been many cover versions of The Wild Side of Life, several of which became hits in their own right. Burl Ives had a top 10 hit with the song concurrent with Thompson's success, while Freddy Fender reached No. 13 on the Billboard Hot Country Singles chart in early 1976. A version by the British rock band Status Quo reached the UK top 10 in 1976. In 1981, Wild Side and It Wasn't God ... were combined into a duet by Waylon Jennings and Jessi Colter on their album Leather and Lace; that version reached No. 10.

    Vic Dana recorded a pop version of The Wild Side of Life with full orchestra backing.

    Maury Finney recorded an instrumental saxophone version in 1976. As the b-side to his single Rollin' in My Sweet Baby's Arms, it charted at #78 on the country music charts

  • Jessi Colter Performs Storms Never Last at the Country Music Hall of Fame and Museum

    2:04

    Jessi Colter began writing songs in the sixties, but it wasn't until 1975 that her performing prowess earned her a spot at the top of the charts, with #1 hit “I’m Not Lisa.”

    When RCA pushed its “Outlaw” marketing concept the next year, Colter became a beguiling foil to the trio of her husband, Waylon Jennings, and Tompall Glaser and Willie Nelson. Their Wanted! The Outlaws became country music's first certified-Platinum album.

    In 1981, Colter and Jennings collaborated on her composition “Storms Never Last” for the duo album Leather and Lace; it charted in the Top 20 and left a lasting image of the couple's musical and personal connection.

    In 2017, Colter visited the Country Music Hall of Fame and Museum (around the release of her memoir, An Outlaw and a Lady, and new album The Psalms), performing “Storms Never Last” and sharing other pieces of her music and history.

    She was your morning light
    Her smile told of no night
    Your love for her grew
    With each rising sun

    And then one winter day
    His hand led hers away
    She left you here drowning in your tears
    Here where you've stayed for years

    Oh, I have followed you down so many roads baby
    I picked wild flowers and sung you soft sad songs
    And every road we took God knows our search was for the truth
    And the storm brewing now won't be the last
    Storms never last do they baby
    Bad times all pass with the winds
    Your hand in mine stills the thunder

    3:42

    Perhaps best known in conjunction with her husband Waylon Jennings, Jessi Colter was the only significant female singer/songwriter to emerge from the mid-'70s outlaw movement. Born Miriam Johnson on May 25, 1943, in Phoenix, AZ, Colter in fact affiliated herself with outlaw imagery long before the musical movement blossomed, adopting her stage name in honor of ancestor Jess Colter, a real-life train robber and counterfeiter who rode with Frank and Jesse James.

    Raised in a strict Pentecostal home, Colter was just a teenager when she left Phoenix to tour as a vocalist with twang-guitar innovator Duane Eddy, whom she met through her sister Sharon, the wife of producer Cowboy Jack Clement. In 1962, she and Eddy married, and after several years of extensive touring (mostly throughout Europe), the couple settled in Los Angeles in 1966. Under the name Miriam Eddy, she wrote songs for Don Gibson, Dottie West, and Nancy Sinatra.

    In 1968, she and Eddy divorced, and Colter returned to Phoenix. There she met Waylon Jennings, who was so taken with her voice that he invited her to record a duet with him. After helping secure Colter a record deal with his label, RCA, Jennings co-produced the tracks that would make up her 1970 debut, A Country Star Is Born; by the time of the record's release, the couple had already married. Under the name Waylon and Jessi, they also issued two Top 40 singles, a 1970 cover of the Elvis Presley hit Suspicious Minds and 1971's Under Your Spell Again. Colter's commercial breakthrough came in 1975 when her composition I'm Not Lisa, a single from the LP I'm Jessi Colter, hit number one on Billboard's country charts while also making the Top Five on the pop charts; the album spawned another hit in What's Happened to Blue Eyes. In 1976, she released two more highly successful albums, Jessi and Diamonds in the Rough.

    Also in 1976, Colter teamed with Jennings, Willie Nelson, and Tompall Glaser for the album Wanted! The Outlaws, which at the time of its release was the biggest-selling album in country history, and the first country album certified platinum in sales. In between spending much of the remainder of the decade on tour with her husband and Nelson, she also released the albums Miriam in 1977 and That's the Way the Cowboy Rocks and Rolls in 1978.

    Colter and Jennings reteamed in 1981 for Leather and Lace, an album of duets featuring the hits Storms Never Last and the medley Wild Side of Life/It Wasn't God Who Made Honky Tonk Angels. In the same year, she released the solo album Ridin' Shotgun, which produced her final chart hit in 1982's Holdin' On. As the 1980s progressed, Colter's success tapered off; 1985's Rock and Roll Lullaby, produced by Chips Moman, was released only on a small label. By the early '90s, she began directing her energies toward performing children's music, and starred in the home video Jessi Colter Sings Songs from Around the World Just for Kids, which featured a guest appearance by Jennings, who recited some of his poetry. Capitol released the An Outlaw...a Lady: The Very Best of Jessi Colter anthology in 2003. It was followed by Out of the Ashes on the Shout Factory label in 2006. ~ Jason Ankeny, All Music Guide

    Mirriam Johnson (born May 25, 1943), known professionally as Jessi Colter, is an American country music artist who is best known for her collaboration with her husband, country singer and songwriter Waylon Jennings, and for her 1975 country-pop crossover hit I'm Not Lisa.

    Colter was one of the few female artists to emerge from the mid-1970s outlaw country movement.[1] After meeting Jennings, Colter pursued a career in country music, releasing her first studio LP in 1970, A Country Star Is Born. Five years later, Colter signed with Capitol Records and released her first solo single, I'm Not Lisa, which topped the country charts and reached the top five on the pop charts. In 1976 she was featured on the collaboration LP Wanted: The Outlaws, which became an RIAA-certified Platinum album.

    That's the Way a Cowboy Rocks and Rolls is the fifth studio album by American country artist, Jessi Colter. The album was released in November 1978 on Capitol Records and was produced by Richie Albright and Waylon Jennings.

    Lyrics:
    [Verse 1]
    When I awake in the night to some old memory
    Darling don't touch the light just come over here with me
    And watch the world go away come as close as you can
    Let your soft skin erase any bad dream I've had

    [Chorus]
    And love me back to sleep again tonight you're all I need
    Put my mind at ease again and love me back to sleep

    [Verse 2]
    And when I toss and turn from another sad dream
    Darling don't say a word to let me know what you mean

    [Chorus][x2]

    The song today for Waylon Wednesday is a beautiful love ballad sung by Jessi with Waylon singing harmony. The chemistry between the two in this video is a thing of beauty. Cutest couple ever.
