Hank Williams Jr. Performs ‘Good Hearted Woman’ With Outlaw Legend Jessi Colter


Before his death, Waylon Jennings performed his hit song “Good Hearted Woman” many times. He initially released it as a single off his album of the same name, and later recorded it as a duet with his good friend Willie Nelson.

Good Hearted Woman” was said to be inspired by an article Jennings read about Ike and Tina Turner. Later that night he met up with Nelson for a game of poker in Fort Worth, Texas where he told him the concept. After the game, the two jammed out their ideas while Nelson’s wife Connie penned the lyrics. How’s that for a writing session?!

They went on to perform it several times with their legendary band, The Highwaymen, consisting of Nelson, Jennings, Kris Kristofferson, and Johnny Cash. Following his 2002 death, many artists began paying tribute to Jennings by covering his songs. It became a way to keep his legacy alive and no one wanted to do so more than his widow, fellow outlaw country legend Jessi Colter.

In a special TV performance, she teamed up with Hank Williams Jr. to sing “Good Hearted Woman” for what looked like a sold-out audience and even more at home. From the moment they began singing, the crowd went wild, knowing they would likely never see a performance quite like this again.
