Biography

Jessi Colter was born with the name Mirriam Johnson on May 25,
1943, in Phoenix. (She adopted the stage name Jessi Colter after
her great-great-great uncle who was in Jesse James' notorious
outlaw gang.) Her mother became Sister Helen, an ordained
Pentecostal minister, and Colter became the church pianist at
age 11. As a teen, her musical talent impressed rockabilly guitar
star Duane Eddy, who produced her 1961 single "Lonesome Road."
They married in 1963. He wrote and recorded an instrumental,
"Mirriam", while she wrote some of his album tracks, as well as
"No Sign of the Living" for Dottie West. In 1967, Eddy and Colter
recorded a duet single, "Guitar on My Mind," but divorced the
following year. She married Waylon Jennings on Oct. 26, 1969,
at her mother's church.

In 1975, Colter notched a sizable country and pop hit with the
self-penned "I'm Not Lisa." That was followed a year later by the
success of Wanted! The Outlaws, a collaboration with Jennings,
Willie Nelson and Tompall Glaser and the first Nashville album to
sell a million copies. Her best-known duets with Jennings are
"Suspicious Minds" and her soothing composition "Storms Never
Last."

Being a constant traveling companion with Waylon, she was
usually a featured crowd favorite part of his concert shows. In
the '90s, she began writing and performing children's music.
She sang on Jennings' live album in 2000, two years before he
died. She added a new version of "Storms Never Last" to a
Jennings tribute album in 2003. That same year, Capitol
Records released the retrospective The Very Best of Jessi
Colter: An Outlaw ... A Lady. This year she releases her first
album of new material in 20 years, Back from the Ashes,
which has been produced by the musical genius, Don Was.
