Waylon Jennings and Jessi Colter: A Classic Country Love Story

Thomas Nelson Publishers/Youtube

It took a few marriages for outlaw country legends Jessi Colter and Waylon Jennings to find each other. Their road was rocky, and they dealt with a lot during their marriage, but the country singers were one of the longest relationships in Nashville, lasting until Jennings death in 2002.

Colter was born Mirriam Johnson in Phoenix, Arizona. After touring clubs in her hometown, the “Storms Never Last” singer married guitarist Duane Eddy in 1961. She recorded a couple of singles that didn’t take off and toured with Eddy until their divorce in 1968.
