b. Mirriam Johnson, 25 May 1943, Phoenix, Arizona, USA. Her mother became Sister Helen, an ordained Pentecostal minister, and Colter became the church pianist when only 11, hence her subsequent gospel album, MIRRIAM. She impressed Duane Eddy who produced her 1961 single, Lonesome Road, and married her 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 his wife recorded a duet single, Guitar On My Mind. After a divorce from Eddy in 1968, she married Waylon Jenningson 26 October 1969 at her mother's church. She adopted the stage name Jessi Colter after her great-great-great uncle who was in Jesse Jamesí notorious outlaw gang. In 1975, Jessi made number 4 in the US pop charts with the self-penned I'm Not Lisa, which was followed by the huge success of WANTED (THE OUTLAWS). (Colter was too conscious of her appearance to ever look like an outlaw.) Her best-known duets with Waylon Jennings are Suspicious Minds, her soothing composition Storms Never Last and The Union Mare And The Confederate Grey from the concept album, WHITE MANSIONS. In 1977 she worked with both husbands and Willie Nelson on a revival of You Are My Sunshine. In recent times she has let her recording career slip, largely to nurse Jennings through his various problems, but she is still part of his stage show. Among her many compositions are You Hung The Moon (Didn't You, Waylon)? and Jennifer (Fly My Little Baby) about her daughter, while she turned John Lennonand Paul McCartney's Hey Jude into a song for Waylon by singing Hey Dude.
