Personalities | Jessi Colter | Country Rock & The Outlaws | Country

(Vocals, b. 1943)

Colter became associated with the Outlaw movement even though her big, pure pop-country voice gave her more in common with Glen Campbell than with her husband Waylon Jennings. She was born Mirriam Johnson in Phoenix, Arizona, where she married rockabilly guitarist Duane Eddy in 1962. After a 1968 divorce, she adopted her new stage name and married Jennings. He produced many of her recordings and often sang duets with her, but Colter’s biggest moment was her 1975 No. 1 hit, ‘I’m Not Lisa’.
