Jessi Colter – I’m Not Lisa

July 8, 2009 | 1975, Female, Top 40

Jessi Colter, born Mirriam Johnson, took the stage name about the same time that she married Waylon Jennings. Prior to her marriage to Jennings she was married to Duane Eddy. Jennings and Colter sang duets in 1970s, but when her first album on RCA records failed to sell she lost her contract.

Then in 1975 as her husband, Willie Nelson and others recorded music that was called Outlaw, she signed to Capitol Records. I’m Not Lisa came from her first Album. It was a big hit reaching #1 on the Billboard Country Chart and #4 on the Billboard Pop Chart.

Four years later she would give birth to another hit, her son Shooter Jennings.
