Even before becoming a breakout country star in 1975 with her plaintive “I’m Not Lisa,” Jessi Colter had led a rich musical life. As a teenager, Colter toured with Duane Eddy as his piano-player, and later married him, and spent close to a decade as a respected Nashville songwriter. In the '70s, she was an important member of Nashville’s “outlaw country” scene, along with her second husband Waylon Jennings. In the decades after, Colter’s music took a back seat to raising her family (her son Shooter Jennings has a thriving country career of his own) and the care of her husband through his drug and medical problems, but she began writing children’s music in the ‘90s, and had a successful comeback to country music on her 2006 release OUT OF THE ASHES.
