Jessi Colter Shares Her Fond Memories of Waylon Jennings


Marriage is something that binds two souls for eternity, but not all facts lean on this statement though. Sometimes, marriage is only a contract until hearts find their perfect match where aside from compatibility, joy naturally flows by just being together.

Here’s how Jessi Colter lived her life as the fourth wife of Waylon Jennings; how they had the greatest time together until he passed away on February 13, 2002. Jessi Colter is still firmly holding on to a beautiful love story which was 33 years worth of challenges.

A Side Only She can Reveal

In a recent interview with Colter, one of the most notable lines she said immediately is that “He (Waylon Jennings) is missed.”

She said that she would never find another man like him. The fact that he has given her a great life is just something that comes between the uncountable hours of happiness that he was able to share with her and his fans. Despite him being gone for 18 long years, she deeply expressed that her feelings remained unmoved and will continue to love him dearly.

But as Jennings’ fourth wife, she did not waver in her words about the first three wives. Blunt as it may sound, Colter said that his first relationships didn’t last because they don’t really understand him. She also recalled how they stood through thick and thin throughout their marriage.

Jessi Colter loves the smallest details about Waylon Jennings, the way he entertains her, the way he made her laugh, the way he inspires, and the subtle ways he shows his love. These memories, for Colter, still felt like they just happened yesterday.

The Outlaw will Forever Live On

The Colter-Jennings experiences during their time aren’t all butterflies and flowers. The couple became iconic figures in country music’s outlaw movement. ‘Wanted! The Outlaws’ in 1976, together with Willie Nelson and Tompall Glaser, made quite a history as it became Nashville’s first ever album which sold more than a million copies. Two years after that came the greatest creation of the two Shooters who were born on May 19.

For Colter and probably for Jennings too, what the late outlaw star needed is a woman who can tame his inner demons. That role was definitely fulfilled by Colter with mementos of their success living through their music.
