Waylon Jennings’ “A Good Hearted Woman”

We are going to take a look on one of the songs from her Lady & Gentlemen album. “A Good Hearted Woman” has been one of Waylon Jennings best songs he recorded. The song was written by Jennings and Willie Nelson in 1969. Jennings released the song in 1971, and it hit the chart at No. 3. When he collaborated again with Nelson to record the song, the outcome became a huge success to both of them. Their recording reached No. 1 on the Billboard Hot Country Songs chart. Moreover, the song secured a spot on the Billboard Hot 100. They even won the CMA’s Single of the Year.

LeAnn Rimes’ Version

LeAnn Rimes’ cover of Waylon’s song did not enter the Billboard chart. Her singles that were able to secure a spot were “Swingin’,” “Crazy Women,” and “Give.” But her album reached No. 7 on the Billboard Top Country Albums chart. Moreover, it placed at No. 32 on the Billboard 200 chart. Even if her recording of “A Good Hearted Woman” did not secure a spot on the Billboard, LeAnn Rimes proved that she could perform a male version song as good as the original recording.
